RIP Flabba

accreditation

Despite many great successes over the past few months, the SA hip hop industry suffered an unexpected great loss this weekend.

Nkululeko Habedi also known as Flabba (from the grou Skwatta Kamp) was allegedly stabbed to death by his girlfriend during the early hours of Monday morning. It was reported that his brother witnessed his death and saw him, covered in blood.

Skwatta Kamp was and still hugely influential in the music industry. They knew exactly how to engage with their fans through interaction and great music.
