Johannesburg - Fans, family and friends gathered on Sunday morning at Alexandra Stadium to pay their last respects to Skwatta Kamp rapper, Nkululeko Habedi aka Flabba, reports The Juice SA.

Sadness filled the air as mourners filled up Alexandra stadium to bid farewell to the musician.

As the crown waited for proceedings to get underway, hip-hop songs by Flabba could be heard in the background.

A neighbour, Tiny Bopape, told the crowd that he could not understand why Flabba would be killed in such a way and that the entire Alex community had lost a brother.

"Now that Flabba is gone, we in Alexandra don’t know who is going to tease us and make us laugh constantly," he said.

Flabba’s family could not hold back their tears as they entered the stadium shortly after his body arrived.

Flabba’s wife, Mpho Habedi, brought the crowd to tears with a moving tribute to her late husband.

Mpho is Flabba’s first wife and they had been together for 20 years before they separated.

A statement from Mpho to Flabba was read out at the funeral at Alexandra stadium this morning.

"I was sugar and spice…I say with pride, I don’t regret a moment of our time together. I remember one day you said to me, our love is like the sun. It had set for a few hours, but was going to rise," read the statement. 

Mpho described how she would miss their family hugs between Flabba, herself and their daughter Lesego. She asked Flabba to watch over them and she promised to take care of both his children.

"Where there is love, there is God. I will always love you. Thank you my husband," she added.

Flabba leaves behind two children, a son and a daughter.
