The universe is showering hip-hop artist HHP with too much spoils for one person these days.

Perhaps that's because he has shown us just how many hats he can wear in one lifetime. He amused and enchanted everyone when he became the winner of Strictly Come Dancing last year.

And he cites this accomplishment as the beginning of all things great. Then he got engaged to his partner of seven years and things took off.

South Africans gave him a vote of confidence when he won the Mzansi Star award last month, a nice layer of icing on the delicious cake called his life. Now he has signed an 11 episode acting contract with e-tv's Rhythm City. Life doesn't get better than that.

"It's absolutely amazing to be integrated into a show I watch on a regular basis," he says.

And to make sure that Jabba has all piece of the good pie, he is to play himself.

"I am looking forward to the experience," he enthuses.

He is also nominated for four South African Music Awards this year. This includes the much-coveted Best Male Solo Artist and Album of the Year categories.

"I don't look at this as luck, rather a long-deserved blessing. It's harvest time for me," he chuckles.
