A steady stream of prayers and support continues to pour in for HHP's 13-year-old son, Leano in the wake of his mother, Lerato Khanye's death on Monday. 

This came as a double blow for the teenager who buried his father, HHP last month. Jabba took his own life on October 24 after a lengthy battle with depression. 

Tsambo family spokesperson, Nkululeko Ncana confirmed to TshisaLIVE that Lerato died in a Johannesburg hospital on Monday morning but could not divulge any further details. 

While Lerato and HHP have not been romantically involved for years, they both raised Leano. The rapper was traditionally married to publicist Lerato Sengadi.

Speaking to Sowetan shortly after HHP's death last month, Lerato revealed that Leano had been struggling to come to terms with his father's loss and had been struggling to sleep.

The Tsambo have called for privacy and declined to comment on how Leano is handling the news of his mother's death.

Ever since news of Lerato's death was confirmed social media has been abuzz with messages of condolences for Leano.
