It’s almost a month since Nelli Tembe who was traditionally married to Kiernan “AKA” Forbes passed away and the rapper is still trying to heal as he said in his second public statement which was recently released.
A lot has been said in the streets of South Africa concerning the 22-year-old’s death.
It seems like there are details that both the Tembes and Forbes are keeping under the carpet as the new statement AKA made clashed absolutely with the one delivered by her father during the funeral.
Nelli’s Dad described his daughter as someone that was full of life. Reflecting on Anele’s life, Mr Tembe says no one in his family would’ve associated her with taking her own life. He then noted that his daughter was never suicidal and did not commit suicide… blaming drugs and alcohol as the main cause of her death.
However, in the new statement released by the rapper, he makes it clear that he has not been named a suspect, he admits his fiancée took her own life and asks everyone to come to terms with the choice she made on that faithful day.
If you read in-between lines, you’d understand he submitted that the young lady took her own life. Interestingly, he also noted that there are people who are trying to paint him black and have been feeding the media with certain information.
The rapper also said something which confirms a lot of speculations. Recall that it was speculated during the funeral service that there was a clash between both families and indirect statements were passed to him, the star said, “As numb as I was during Anele’s funeral, I took in every word imparted, the direct ones and all those filled with innuendos.”
He, however, noted that he wasn’t going to try and defend himself from one-sided views.
“What I will say as my truth, I was and still am madly in love with a girl, carrying whatever past traumas she faced before I met her,” the Fela In Versace hitmaker said, pointing to the fact that Anele carried through a past trauma into the relationship which led to the action that took place on April 11… by-and-large, the family should know more about what led to the incident.
