The death of popular South African musician, Jabulani Tsambo, 38, caused much upset in Botswana, where the singer was regarded by many as an honourary Motswana.
However, the fallen star’s suspected suicide was especially devastating for a 33-year-old local stunner from Maun.
In an exclusive interview with The Voice, a heartbroken Gwen Isaacs narrated how Hip Hop Pantsula (HHP) or Jabba as he was popularly known, had talked about marrying her.
Grieving alone and far from Johannesburg where his memorial was held, the distressed beauty, who lives in Gaborone, said that although she and Jabba had a topsy-turvy relationship, it was only recently that the king of Motswako had indicated he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.
“HHP was the love of my life. He was even prepared to relocate to Botswana to live with me once we are married. He went as far as coming up with a hashtag ‘Ke kopa Omang,’ to show how serious he was about relocating to Botswana,” she said, adding that the romance dated back 14 years when she met Jabba at a party in Gaborone and the couple instantly hit it off.
