#Leano | Mzansi prays for HHP’s son after the death of his mom
This came as a double blow for the teenager who buried his father, HHP last month. Jabba took his own life on October 24 after a lengthy battle with depression.
Tsambo family spokesperson, Nkululeko Ncana confirmed to TshisaLIVE that Lerato died in a Johannesburg hospital on Monday morning but could not divulge any further details.
While Lerato and HHP have not been romantically involved for years, they both raised Leano. The rapper was traditionally married to publicist Lerato Sengadi.
Speaking to Sowetan shortly after HHP’s death last month, Lerato revealed that Leano had been struggling to come to terms with his father’s loss and had been struggling to sleep.
The Tsambo have called for privacy and declined to comment on how Leano is handling the news of his mother’s death.
Ever since news of Lerato’s death was confirmed social media has been abuzz with messages of condolences for Leano.

A teenage boy has lost both parents in the space of a month.
An absolutely sad reality he is facing right now.
I pray he has all of the support, love and comfort needed during this difficult time.
Condolences to Leano and all of his mother’s loved ones.
