Well-known South African rapper, Nkululeko Habedi, who goes by the stage name ‘Flabba’, was stabbed to death at his Alexandria home early Monday morning.
According to the South African police service, the 38-year-old rapper was involved in a domestic dispute with his girlfriend before he was killed at 2am in the morning. The police also confirmed that the woman had been arrested for questioning on the murder.
Flabba’s younger brother told reporters that he was woken by a noise and rushed to his brother’s bedroom, where he witnessed Flabba live the last moments of his life.
He was a member of popular Soweto hip hop group Skwatta Camp derived from ‘Squatter Camp’, which is a reference to South Africa’s shanty towns. He was also famously known for his solo track Isbhamu somdoko off his debut album Nkuli vs Flabba, which earned him a South African Music Award for best Rap Album in 2007.
A fellow group member Siyabonga ‘Slikour’ Metane also confirmed his death to reporters, saying:
“I just got a call from his family. I will be on my way to his family’s home. “Everything about him is genuine, whether he was angry, whether he was he was happy. He generally had a big heart; he was a good guy. In Skwatta Kamp, he was the most independent thinker and he just got a big heart. He had a big heart”.
Fans and friends have been expressing shock and posting condolence messages for the fallen rapper on social media.
It isn't exactly a secret to know that Kanye West has his share of admirers and critics.
After all, the outspoken rapper has been known to say some pretty harsh comments to a few famous musicians like Taylor Swift and Beck.
But if you ask the one and only Madonna, the man behind "Stronger" and "Gold Digger" deserves plenty of praise for his work both on and off the stage.
"Kanye is the new Madonna," she told the New York Daily News while promoting her new albumRebel Heart. "Kanye is the black Madonna."
She continued, "We know, and recognize, that we have that in common. We're comrades in the envelope-pushing genre."
“Change, as the entire country must know by now, is the slogan of the APC – the rallying cry of a political party that wishes to bring hope of greater and better things to come for Nigeria and Nigerians. By her statement, Mrs. Jonathan was clearly calling on PDP supporters in Calabar to attack supporters and campaigners of the APC in the state.”APCPCO said that Mrs. Jonathan does not occupy any formal office in the Nigerian government, adding that the position of First Lady is not recognized by the Nigerian constitution.
“Jonathan’s incontrovertible hate speech not only contravenes the laws of the land, but also goes completely against the Abuja Peace Accord jointly signed by the two presidential candidates, General Muhammadu Buhari and President Goodluck Jonathan as a gesture aimed at forestalling violence before, during and after the 2015 elections.
“PDP supporters in the state who may not know better could easily yield themselves to the First Lady’s admonition and embark on a process of wanton stoning and other attacks against APC members”, it quoted Ameachi as saying.
