Fellow musicians have described Jabulani Tsambo affectionately known as HHP as the biggest thing that happened in the South African music industry.
They were speaking at the memorial service of the Hip-Hop star’s memorial service, currently underway in Johannesburg.
The hip-hop star passed away last week.
Musicians and members of the public are out in numbers to celebrate the life of HHP. Outside the Johannesburg venue, fans can be seen holding placards with the words: RIP we love you.
Among those present here include his long-time friend and University mate, former musician, DJ Cleo.
Musicians Ntando and Jah-Seed recall how HHP influenced their music careers, “He’s the first celebrity to ever call me from home. And I was so excited to get back from school and mommy said listen, there’s a guy called HHP or Jabulani he just said you should watch studio mix. Since then, here I am I have my own album. He’s one of the five people who started using vernacular. He found power in vernacular.”
