HHP's widow and well-known publicist Lerato Sengadi has given fans a snapshot of the hole the star's death one month ago left in her heart. 

News of Jabba's untimely death on October 24 sent shockwaves through the country. 

This past Saturday marked exactly one month since Jabba took his own life after a lengthy battle with depression. 

Taking to social media Lerato shared a picture of her and Jabba in happier times with a heartbreaking message. 

"It’s been a month. Feels like an eternity. Feels like yesterday. Feels so surreal. But the grief is so real. I know the strength God has bestowed upon me is a gift from u #Motho #DloziLam #Psalm35." 

In the days after Jabba's death, Lerato became a beacon of hope for widows as she stood tall against the late rapper's father, Robert Tsambo. 

Lerato turned to the courts after Robert refused to acknowlege her as Jabba's customary wife and excluded her from all funeral arrangements. the South Gauteng High Court ruled that according to law she and Jabba had entered into a customary union. 

Lerato's unwavering strength was applauded by thousands of people on social media. 

Here's what Lerato had to say about the victory at the time.
