Late music star Jabulani Tsambo aka Hip Hop Pantsula (HHP) will be remembered and honoured at an inaugural memorial lecture at Mahikeng Campus in the North West on Saturday, September 14.
The SA Motswako rapper who performed in several languages died on October 24 last year, 2018, in his home in Johannesburg.
On what would have been Jabba’s 39th birthday, friends and family are turning the day into a celebration of his life through a lecture.
The lecture is being organised by his friend, rapper and farmer Mo Molemi, with the help of Jabba’s family.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Mo said:
“The need came from September 14 being his birthday, the first since his passing. It is in line with celebrating his life.”
“In a week where we experienced foreigners being kicked out of SA. A week where we commemorate the passing of Bantu Biko. A week when we are burying Robert Mugabe. A week of protest against gender-based violence. It is a fitting discussion… that identifies our society today.”
Mo said that the lecture’s theme is Omang, as we forge ahead, he further explained that the keynote speaker was Dr Kea Modimoeng. Jabba’s mother, who is an academic, will be one of the speakers at the lecture
