Renowned composer, musician, and producer, Lebo “Lebo M” Morake, has recently made headlines as he proceeds with divorce proceedings against his estranged wife, Pretty Samuels-Morake. The divorce has taken an unexpected turn, with trust and life policies becoming central points of contention.
In his press statement, Lebo M revealed that during his European tour from April to 27 June 2023, he entrusted his electronic signature to Pretty Samuels-Morake, granting her proxy to sign documents on his behalf. However, upon his return, an alarming situation arose when he requested Samuels-Morake to destroy and delete the electronic signature from her PC. This request led to a heated altercation between the couple, exacerbated by her reluctance to sign a sworn affidavit confirming the destruction of the signature. Eventually, under pressure, she relented and signed the affidavit.
Moreover, Lebo M also asked Samuels-Morake to sign another affidavit, assuring that she was not aware of any life insurance policies that would benefit her or others upon his death. He intended to include these affidavits in his last will and testament. However, his estranged wife failed to comply with this request, leaving Lebo M distressed and concerned for his safety and that of their children.
This refusal has caused Lebo M to question the authenticity of his life policies and whether any fraudulent life covers were taken out in his name without his knowledge or consent. Such an act would amount to fraud, making it essential for him to consult his attorneys to investigate and verify the validity of these allegations.
It is crucial to monitor how this case unfolds, as the implications of these allegations may have far-reaching consequences for both parties involved. For now, Lebo M continues to await the affidavit he requested on 8 July 2023, while the public awaits further updates on this high-profile divorce case.
