It’s been almost 3 years since the passing of one of South Africa’s biggest icons in music. Today the 14th of September would have been his 41st birthday and his family, friends and fans still miss him.
HHP, better known as Jabba (real name Jabulani Tsambo), committed suicide at his home in 2018.
What would summer be without Jabba?
