BBC – South African rapper Jabulani Tsambo, popularly known as HHP, has died.
His wife, who doubles as his publicist, has confirmed the news to local media.
The award-winning artist, 38, is seen as the man who made South African hip hop popular, singing in indigenous languages, at a time when most local artists were imitating American-style rap.
Thousands of South Africans have taken to social media to pay their respects to him.
