Flabba’s Family Breathes Fire After Girlfriend Sindisiwe Manqele’s Interview With MacG
The late Skwatta Kamp rapper Flabba’s family is breathing fire after his girlfriend Sindisiwe Manqele, who also stabbed him to death, went for an interview with MacG on Podcast And Chill.
In 2016, Sindisiwe was sentenced to 12 years in jail for killing her boyfriend, Nkululeko ‘Flabba’ Habedi, after a verbal fight. She was released in May on parole.
Sindisiwe told MacG they went out for a party, and Flabba got jealous and a fight ensued. She locked the door, and Flabba opened it with a knife.
Sindisiwe added that she took the knife and “mistakenly” stabbed her boyfriend in the chest as she pushed him away. She declined to reveal some of the things MacG asked her, saying she would speak out in her upcoming documentary.
Flabba’s family was not happy with the Podcast And Chill interview. The late rapper’s brother Tshepang told City Press that they know nothing about this documentary, and they last spoke to Sindisiwe when she got released.
Tsepang insisted that if Sindisiwe uses Flabba’s name, then his children should also enjoy the proceeds of the documentary.
“We were not informed of any documentary. We found out on that podcast, like everyone else. We have not been approached about any documentary and have not been in contact with her since she was released on parole.
I don’t want to hear anything about this documentary they are doing. But if they want to use Nkululeko’s name, they must make sure that the money goes to his children, and then we will pay attention to them. If Sindisiwe is going to make a lot of money from my brother’s name, she must not forget about his children.”
Flabba’s mother, Nolwandle Habedi, told Sunday World that Sindisiwe has her son’s blood on her hands, and she can’t milk the late musician’s brand and legacy without her knowledge or consent.
“Sindi invited me to Sun City about two years ago saying she wanted to ask for forgiveness, and she had invited cameras to document our conversation, and this is when I said “no” to any documenting, not then and not in future until she comes clean about what really happened.
I just wonder what she is planning to say about my son without my consent, knowing that I rejected the documentary idea from the onset. Even I don’t want to do a documentary on Nkululeko because this story hurts me so much. I have been through so much, in and out of hospitals to date.”
