Jesse would admit on social media that Rapho battled mental health challenges and drugs with the family doing their best to set him free from the struggles until his untimely demise in December.

"I want to unconditionally admit kuwa I went Physical on my kid Bro on several occasions that's absolutely true and that here's the other side of the coin.

“I knew one day I was gonna trend but never in my wildest dreams did it occur to me that would happen such a time I'm mourning the loss of my brother as being the reason why he's no more, I know it's bad timing but for my peace of mind I want to address just one aspect that has been leveled against me as an individual which was violence towards my brother,” Jesse explained.
