Johannesburg - The Nelson Mandela of Motswako music is no more.
This is how Keabetswe Modimoeng, a childhood friend of the late Jabulani Tsambo, affectionately known as HHP by his fans and supporters, described the loss of the music legend.
“North West province has lost its greatest artistic export,”Modimoeng lamented.
Before his death, it was no secret that Tsambo had endured a long battle with depression and had attempted to take his life three times in 2015.
When Modimoeng was asked about Tsambo’s depression, and if he was aware of what his late friend was going through, he said: “We all have our ups and downs due to professional and personal reasons, or anything for that matter. I don’t think one would be adequately qualified to attribute any concurrence to the statements he (HHP) made years ago.
