Today marks three years since Nkululeko ‘Flabba’ Habedi was killed and his Skwatta Kamp band members have honoured his memory by releasing a new track, Conversations With Flabba.
Taking to Twitter early this week, Flabba’s close friend and Skwatta Kamp member Shugasmakx revealed their plan to pay tribute to him on the anniversary of his death.

Speaking to Drum magazine earlier this week Flabba’s friend and artist, Slikour said his passing took its toll on the group since they were more like family.
“Flabba’s death was hard on us and no one in the group knew Sindisiwe personally for her to come and apologise for what she did. Fact is, Flabba is not coming back and she has to live with herself – which is harder than being judged by us,” he told the publication.
Flabba was stabbed by his then sweetheart, Sindisiwe Manqele at his home in Alexandra. Sindisiwe was sentenced to 12 years in jail for the murder.
