South African Rapper AKA Loses Fiancée To Tragic Fall From Hotel Building

 Nelli Tembe, the fiancée of South African rapper AKA, has died after falling from the 10th floor of a hotel building in Cape Town.


According to local media outlet TimesLive, 22-year-old Tembe fell from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Central Cape Town on Sunday, April 11, 2021.

The family of Anele “Nelli” Tembe and AKA, whose real name is Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, confirmed the death in a joint statement issued on Sunday afternoon.

TshisaLIVE reported that witnesses who were staying at the hotel described how they had heard a woman screaming, followed by a loud “doef” sound and then a man shouting.

Paramedics responded to the fall outside the hotel where they assessed her but her condition “rapidly deteriorated”.

This is coming two months after the AKA announced his engagement to Nelli Tembe. The rapper shared a picture of an engagement ring on Tembe’s finger with the caption, “21/02/21 – love of my life said Yesssss. 💍

Nelli also took to her Instagram stories to share the same photo with the caption, “I’m happy.”
