Many were first introduced to Lerato Sengadi either through her time in the Big Brother Africa house back in 2007 or through her highly popular social media  and no matter how they came to know of her, many have continued following her journey because there's just something about her. Lerato Sengadi has opened up about a traumatic experience involving the wedding ring her late husband, Jabulani ‘HHP’ Tsambo, gave her.

The publicist says she woke up one day and the ring no longer fit her finger.

“A few weeks ago, I had something traumatic happen to me…. I woke up one morning, got ready for work & as I was putting on my beautiful ring that Motho gave me it literally slid off my finger,” she wrote on Instagram.

Lerato described the moment as "shocking and heartbreaking".  

“My once perfectly fitting, specially selected, symbol of love had now become so big that if I wore it I would definitely lose it. I stood there and looked at my naked ring finger. It hit me like a ton of bricks that I can no longer wear my ring.” 

HHP passed away in October last year after allegedly committing suicide. 

Lerato says she is saddened that her wedding ring will no longer be a part of her daily life. 

“I already knew that it couldn’t be resized because of the design, but the reality of it was so painful to accept. My heart, body, mind & spirit had been battered so much in a short space of time that that moment became a physical manifestation of my reality.”

Well-known jewellery designer Jenna Clifford heard about what happened with Lerato’s ring and decided to surprise her with a new one.  

“Delicate yet strong... just like me. Thank u Jenna," she said about the ring.
