Johannesburg – Slain Skwatta Kamp rapper Nkululeko Habedi ‘s young brother, Tshepang, says his family does not know why his brother and girlfriend were arguing in the fight that led to his death.

Nkululeko Habedi, known as Flabba in the music industry, was stabbed once in the heart on Monday morning, his brother said.

"He was stabbed once in the heart around 02:00. He was in his room," his young bother Tshepang Habedi said on the family's behalf.

He said that apparently there was an argument with his girlfriend.

"We do not know why they had an argument."

His girlfriend was arrested after the crime, in Alexandra, Johannesburg.

"I do not know when she will be in court. We do not have a case number as yet," Habedi said.

"It is difficult for my mother. I am her only surviving child. My brother died in 1994, and now Flabba. I must be strong for her."

He said his 60-year-old mother was deeply hurt by Flabba's death.

Neighbours, fans and friends gathered outside the house in 3rd Street to pay their respects. Cars were parked on both sides of the narrow street making it difficult to pass.

Neighbour Thabo Kau said Flabba was humble, despite his fame.

"He was friendly, he was not shy to sit and drink with us. He had no problem with people. We are shocked and saddened by his death," said Kau.

He said they would remember him through his music.

"He might have gone but his music lives."
