The tumultuous and tragic relationship between AKA – real name Kiernan Forbes and his fiancée Nelli Tembe has been revisited. This, following the NPA’s decision to re-investigate Tembe’s mysterious death more than two years ago.

Amid the announcement, Twitter sleuths are running wild with commentary with conspiracy theories on the circumstances leading to their deaths.

The muso was shot and killed outside a restaurant on Durban’s Florida road in February. His death comes almost two years after Nelli allegedly ended her life after falling off the balcony of a Cape Town hotel in April 2021.

AKA admitted to being in a “toxic” relationship with Tembe following her death. The rapper was also accused of physically and mentally abusing the 22-year-old.
