Meanwhile, four months ago, Briefly.co.za reported that it was an emotional moment for fans of the late iconic musician, HHP, when his son, Leano Khanye, received his Lifetime Achievement Award at the South African Music Awards. Leano said a few very touching words.
HHP will forever be one of the most iconic musicians in the hip-hop genre. His music has inspired generations to come after him and his fans feel the Lifetime Achievement Award he was honoured with at the South African Music Awards (SAMAs) was well-deserved.
