Now, Lerato is in a battle to be recognised by HHP's family as his customary wife.
The rapper's father, Robert Tsambo, insists lobola was never paid for her and has taken the matter to the Supreme Court of Appeal.
The case is ongoing.
Lerato is remaining steadfast in her belief that she is the late rapper's widow and will share in his estate.
In a recent interview with Radio 702, Lerato said she believes she represents all marginalised black widows.
Check out a few memorable quotes from Lerato below:
“These are conversations that are important and if I am a catalyst to those conversations happening then so be it. Black widows have been treated in the most vile, inhuman and degrading way once their partner passes for decades. I don't think there's one black woman who doesn't know of another black woman who has gone through this. This conversation is important because at some point we have to say enough is enough.”
“I will be as strong for you now and continue to protect you and your legacy in death like I did when you were alive. You know I am a fighter who will stop at nothing to do what is right for you.”
“In chess the Queen protects the King. Life is a game of chess. #QueenMother #IWillNotCower #MothoWaMotho”
