The interview was on Metro FM when the award-winning DJ was still hosting the Fresh's Breakfast show. HHP was asked to freestyle and he chose a kwaito beat and showcased his artistry leaving many mesmerized by his bars.

The rapper died in 2018 after he was suspected to have committed suicide. His wife has been struggling to come to terms with his passing and she often takes to social media to pay tribute to him.

“As” by Stevie Wonder says it all. October will always be bitter-sweet. It is the month that the world gained me and the month I lost my world. Motho waka, Lerato la pelo yaka, I miss u every single second, of every single day... and it will be so until we are reunited. Ke go rata ka mmele, pelo le moya. (Sidebar: Nna le Motho waka were always so oulik. Tjeeerrrr! Bona fela!”.

Lerato had to deal with a lengthy court battle with HHP's family after the rapper's death, which challenged her status as HHP's wife. The rapper's in-laws appealed the matter with the Supreme Court after she won the case at the High Court and was declared the rapper's legal wife. 

Supreme Court ruling establishing her status as the legal rapper of HHP brought an end to the legal battle. Despite a traditional lobola ceremony having taken place, the Tsambo family contested the marriage as not all customary rites had been completed by the late rapper.

To pay tribute to him. Lerato produced a song which is titled Nkaofa 2,0 and it features Focalist. Taking to her Instagram account to share the news she said"

I put my entire heart into making this track. I’ve never executive produced a track before but because Motho was guiding me every step of the way we created a banger!!!!

It started with me having a crazy idea of wanting to gift Motho a song on his birthday. I prayed on it. I phahla’d on it. And Modimo le Badimo showed up for me & guided me."
