Local promoter and entrepreneur, Seabelo Modibe, has gone on to refer to the late motswako rapper Hip Hop Pantsula’s (HHP) widow, Lerato Sengadi, as a 'mad woman'.

This was after Sengadi accused Modibe of slandering her name and submitting HHP’s name to the SAMA’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Modibe told Showbiz that Sengadi did not have the right to submit HHP’s name to the SAMAs. “After all, she is not HHP’s wife, she can take me to court if she wants,” he said. Modibe added that she must not go around doing things in the name of Jabba because HHP’s family was granted leave to appeal the court's previous verdict that declared Sengadi as Jabba's legitimate wife. Modibe, popularly known as Sbizo, said he only learnt through Facebook of HHP’s nomination. “Who is she? She is not entitled to do that, even Universal Music Group didn’t know about this,” Modise said.
