This is not the first tragedy to struck the family recently. In 2019 Papa Penny lost his stepson Nicholas who apparently committed suicide. Speaking to Sowetan Papa Penny said he disappeared for a couple of days and they found a letter that he was going to kill himself at Soshanguve train station.
“He woke up in the morning and he was very good. So around 3pm after taking a bath he just told the grandfather that he’s coming back [after going out],” Penny said.

“At around 10pm, we received a call that he had not returned home. We tried calling him but his phone went onto voicemail. We tried calling his friends and they didn’t know where he was. That’s when we started to suspect something was wrong.“
“I don’t know what his problem was. He used to tell his mother sometimes that ‘I’m going to kill myself’. During the day on Thursday, he sent his mother a picture with the peace sign. The mother didn’t think much of it.”
Pap Penny has won the hearts of millions of people across the country. Penny Penny’s multifaceted personality always keeps viewers entertained from beginning to end of every episode.
In 2019 he topped the Twitter trends list after he was accused of being stingy. This follows after he booked a business class flight for himself and booked an economy class flight for his family. This angered Twitter users who labelled him ‘toxic’ and he was infuriated by the allegations. Speaking to TshisaLIVE he said he is not rich and those who were concerned about this should give him money.
“You can’t make everyone happy. My reality show is not a drama, it is my reality. I won’t hide anything. I am not rich. I am not a Motsepe. I will never be famous because I am rich. I welcome anyone who is criticising me to give me money to ‘look after my wife and kids’.
May her soul continue to rest in peace. – ZAlebs
