This comes after hip-hop artist Jabulani Tsambo, better known by his stage name Hip Hop Pantsula, later shortened to HHP lost his life due to depression.

HHP’s body was discovered by his helper in his bedroom in Randpark Ridge, western Johannesburg. According to SowetanLIVE, the 38-year-old rapper allegedly committed suicide yesterday at his house.

Taking to social media, the woman tweeted: “After my father passed on 2 months ago, I tried to reach out and told people that I have depression. I was told that I’m not the first person to lose a parent, I must stop “IT” and take care of my children.. How do you stop being depressed.”

Florence then replied by saying she is available should she need to talk. “Are you ok now? Send me an email if you need to chat (sic).” 

This comes after she tweeted: “Depression is not a joke. It is also not an opportunity for you to practice your religious superman speech. Afford people an opportunity to get the necessary treatment. If they lose the battle, don’t call them weak in faith. In fact don’t call them weak at all (sic).”

“My Christ loving uncle was depressed. He called his sister in distress asking her to come over. She too was Christ loving. She told him to pray. While she was calling others and telling them to pray, he killed himself. Neither he nor his sister underestimated the power of prayer (sic),” – Florence Masebe said in another tweet.
