Tributes pour in for AKA’s fiancée after tragic death


Celebs and fans send condolences to the family of AKA’s fiancée, Anele “Nelli” Tembe, following tragic death after she apparently fell from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town.

AKA is currently in grief following death of his fiancée, after one and four months in relationship together.

The two made trending list last year after dating confirmation, many times AKA gushes over her as both made full commitment as lovers.

It is sadly for both families, Forbes and Tembe, as their children engaged on February this year, both families release statement upon her death.

“We are still in shock and dealing with our emotions as she was an exceptional and gifted young woman with so much life ahead of her,” the families said in a joint statement issued on Sunday afternoon.

According to TimesLive, Western Cape police spokesperson Capt FC van Wyk said crime scene experts were looking for clues at the hotel.

“Cape Town Central police are investigating an inquest case after an incident at a hotel this morning at about 7.45am on the corners of Loop and Bloem streets in the CBD, where the body of a 22-year-old woman was found deceased.”

Witnesses at the scene described hearing a scream, followed by a “loud doef” sound, and said they had also heard a man shouting.

A source close to AKA said he was “inconsolable”.

The couple first made headlines in January last year after a video of them kissing at a restaurant went viral. In February this year, Tembe confirmed their engagement.

“Words cannot describe how grateful I am to be your life partner. Even through the highs and lows, you have always stood by me and I thank you, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, for loving me wholeheartedly and never giving up on us. Cheers to the beginning of forever. 4L boo,” she wrote on social media.
