Local rapper and mucisian AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, broke his silence two weeks after his fiancée Anele ‘Nellie’ Tembe’s tragic death.
Tembe allegedly fell to her death from a tenth-floor penthouse Hotel in Cape Town on Sunday, 11 April.
The body of the 22-year-old, who recently got engaged to the rapper, was found on the pavement after she jumped.
AKA had proposed to Tembe in February and they were both waiting to kick start lobola negations before Tembes’s tragic death.
In a statement AKA says “I have lost the love of my life … and every day feels like a mountain to climb”.
“The tragic loss of Anele has taken a great toll on me, emotionally and psychologically. Insinuations and innuendos made on my personhood have made it even more difficult to process and the strain our families have taken is unspeakable – which is why at this time I choose to retreat to honor my journey, praying that moments of stillness may bring me closer to some clarity.” he stated.
