As if it was not enough to have the Tsambos (HHP's family), publicly dismissing Lerato, it has now emerged that one of HHP's "squad members" has directed shots to Lerato, stating that she is not HHP's wife and must stop using his name to gain relevance.
According to Sunday World, HHP's former business partner, Seabelo Modibe at Lekoko Entertainment, revealed that Lerato Sengadi is not the suitable candidate to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year's South African Music Awards (#SAMA25) after she volunteered to accept the prestigious award on his behalf.
“I received a call from Jabulani’s family wanting to know what is happening after they read in the papers that she would be receiving the award on his behalf."
He continued to add:"
“She must stop using Jabulani’s name for publicity, she is not Jabulani’s wife as they were not married. She cannot use the previous court order which declared her the legal wife of Jabulani because the family was granted leave to appeal by the same court. The leave to appeal automatically rescinds the court’s previous decision which declared her Jabu’s legitimate wife.”
"This award is to further cement Jabba’s icon status within the music and entertainment industry, and it is unfortunate that Mr Modibe would use such a celebratory occasion to mare Jabba’s illustrious career as well as ‘villainise’ myself,”
