HHP’s family adamant funeral will take place amid court battle
Spokesperson for the Tsambo family Nkululeko Ncana has refuted Sengadi's claims.
The rapper's partner Lerato Sengadi went the legal route on Thursday, claiming Jabba's family hasn’t allowed her to view his remains and has barred her from taking part in the funeral arrangements.
HHP died last week at age 38.
The spokesperson for the Tsambo family Nkululeko Ncana has refuted Sengadi's claims.
“The issue here has to do with hard drive, documents, intellectual property. We’re Africans, we’re not going to keep people away from a funeral. We know that they used to be together and stuff like that but it’s just not us.”

HHP's family says they are open to an out of court settlement with Sengadi who is expected to approach the courts on Friday to try interdict his funeral service.
However, Ncana admitted that they do not recognise her as his legal wife and that she must respect the family's mourning period.
“We just want sanity to prevail, we want to mourn Jabu and we’re willing to sit around the table because there are certain things that we know where we can actually have a conversation, where it doesn’t need all these court battles.”
He says the family understands that Jabba and Sengadi loved each other and that a mutual conversation between those affected should be had to avoid further humiliation.
