Kiernan Forbes, South African rapper better known as AKA, has denied the rumours that he is a suspect in the investigation into the death of Anele ‘Nelli’ Tembe, his late fiancée.
Tembe, 22, died on April 11 after an accident at the Pepperclub Hotel in central Cape Town. Reports said that the deceased fell from the 10th floor of the five-star hotel. But police said an investigation was ongoing to ascertain the cause of her death.
In a statement via his Instagram page on Saturday, AKA said he’s not a suspect in his fiancée’s death. The rapper claims he has been collaborating with the police in their investigation.
“I am fully aware of who the ‘sources’ engaging media are and what their intention is, which is to influence the SAPS inquest. The investigating officer has stated numerous times to my legal team that I, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, have not been named to be a suspect. I have been nothing by a cooperating witness.”
AKA’s post suggests that Anele’s death was a suicide…
“What I will say as my truth is I was and still am madly in love with a girl; carrying whatever past traumas she faced before I met her,” AKA wrote. “I own up to my past and current traumas and I have submitted myself to psychological and spiritual counselling for my own benefit and growth,” he added.
“I hope everyone affected by Anele’s traumatic passing does the same for themselves, individually and collectively; so that we may all afford her spirit the rest she deserves and come to terms with the choices she made that fateful morning of 11 April.”
AKA said it is unfortunate that people he and his late fiancée trusted with their challenges have started using such to smear his reputation.
“I am a passionate and emotional person. What I will not do and stand for is watching people attempt to disparage my name; and, importantly, Anele’s character to suit a narrative we both ever signed up for.
