Gender-based violence (GBV) activists Nampree and organisation Women For Change are “celebrating” the deaths of slain rapper AKA and his best friend Tebello Tibz Motsoane, whom they have called “abusers.” They’ve also used the star’s death to remember his late fiancee, Nelli Tembe.

Nampree – otherwise known as “Namhla” – accused DJs Fresh and Euphonik of allegedly drugging and raping her more than a decade ago. However, her case was dismissed due to insufficient evidence.

AKA was shot and killed outside a restaurant on Durban’s Florida road on Friday evening.

Nelli Tembe – originally from Durban – allegedly ended her life after falling off the balcony of a Cape Town hotel in April 2021.


Taking to her Twitter account, Nampree unashamedly expressed her joy at the news of the murder of AKA and Tibz.

She said in a series of tweets:

“Not only did he kick the door, he kicked the bucket too”

“What a beautiful day”

“Are y’all gonna act shocked every time I celebrate an abuser’s death?”

“Tibz was also an abuser. Talk about killing two birds with one stone”

AKA has long been linked to allegations he physically and emotionally abused Nelli during their relationship. Tibz was also accused of abusing previous girlfriends, who include media personality Tshepi Vundla.

Meanwhile, Women For Change – who liked several tweets by Nampree – also remembered Nelli Tembe, who tragically ended her life at just 22 years old.

The organisation has previously called for the rapper to be cancelled in a campaign called “#MuteAKA” following Nelli Tembe’s death.

It said in an Instagram post at the time: “Mute AKA music on your #Spotify #AppleMusic #YoutubeMusic Account or other streaming platforms.

“It is overdue to show South Africa once and for all that women matter! We want justice for Nelli! #womenforchange #southafrica #justicefornelli #metoo #EnoughisEnough #sayhername”.

The organisation has backed a number of female celebs, including Moneao, Sithelo Shozi, Monique Muller, and others who accused their high-profile boyfriends of abuse.


Meanwhile, the Twitter timeline is filling up with tributes to Nelli Tembe in the wake of AKA’s death.
