“If I could speak to him one last time…”
Hugo said he was honoured to have worked with HHP and have been under his wing.
“He took me in and gave me a chance when not many people were willing to open the door that wide. We loved working with each other and I made beats that I was excited to show him.”
The young musician and producer learnt of his idol’s passing after travelling back to Johannesburg from Durban and said the pair were planning big things together in the future.
“I was recovering after being in a serious car accident the day before but when I heard, I totally lost it. I was in total denial. As time went and people confirmed it to me, I lost my mind. There was a surreal thought that something like this could happen.”
He said that if he could have one last moment with his idol he would have told him to hold on for those he loved.
“If I could speak to him one last time, I would tell him that I will always do him proud and make sure that no one goes through what he went through.”
