World-renowned producer and composer Lebohang “Lebo M” Morake wants justice to be served for his dead infant son who drowned in a swimming pool.

The media personality says he wants the nanny who was looking after his son jailed for his death.

Morake turned 57 on 11 July and he expressed as his birthday wish that the nanny should be arrested.

The musician remembered his late son, Thembalethu Morake, on his birthdays as he shared his birthday with him.

He says his son would’ve turned 19 years on 11 July.


It is reported that Morake’s infant son drowned in his Dainfern home, near Fourways, Johannesburg, in 2003.

The composer has opened up about his son’s death for the first time in an interview with City Press.

This has been my pain all these years. It has destroyed my relationship with all my other children.

He says his son’s death still haunts him 18 years later.

He told City Press that he’s been trying to get justice for his son over the past few years.  He also stated:

Everyone orchestrated this against me … to hide the truth behind the murder of my son and the negligent role [of the nanny] in the death of my son.

They found the clothes that my son wore in the morning smelling of chlorine.

They took the clothes to the police because this had nothing to do with the bathtub as the baby was bathed in the morning and the clothes he wore smelt of chlorine.

The cops arrested the girl.


The Lion King producer and composer was trending recently for allegedly causing damages to a property in Blair Athol Estate mansion.

He coughed up R700 000 to the mansion he had been renting as the owner of the multimillion-rand mansion took him to court.
