JOHANNESBURG - I have lost a husband, my best friend, my road dog, my comedian, my selector, my favourite artist, my scrabble mate, the love of my life, Motho waka.
Those were the words of late Jabulani 'HHP' Tsambo's former partner Lerato Sengadi on Tuesday.
Dressed in all black and donning big sunglasses, Sengadi on Tuesday paid tribute to Tsambo in a letter she read out during the rapper's memorial service at Newtown Music Factory, formerly Baseline, in Newtown.
Earlier in a statement the rapper's family denied that she was Tsambo's wife, she was an ex-fiance who had moved out of his home and his life on her own accord last year.
Tsambo family spokesperson Nkululeko Ncana said:"I would like to put this matter to rest and categorically state on record that Ms Sengadi is not, and was never married to Jabulani. She is not his wife!"
