According to Police, in the early hours of Sunday morning, an investigation was opened following the death of Anele Tembe, the fiancée of well-known musician AKA, at the five-star Pepperclub Hotel in central Cape Town.

When the news was finally confirmed, sources close to AKA said that he had sought counselling and that he was beside himself with grief, which can be expected. The rapper proposed in February, and the couple had even begun lobola negotiations.

That is why it does not come as a shock that AKA had remained silent during this time and has not yet addressed the situation. 

In the absence of this, many ugly rumours began to spread like wildfire on social media. Some claimed that the couple had a very tumultuous relationship and that things could get physical at times.

It is now clear that the statement was in response to a story that was run today by a newspaper publication in which pictures of AKA were released in which he is seen breaking down a door trying to get to Anele. 

The incident allegedly took place on March 13. 

AKA's statement is now clearly a slam at the insinuations as he labelled them "An attempt to disparage my name and Anele's character".

What the rapper does admit to is that he and Anele had faced troubles in their relationship 'just like any other couple' but said he refused to be drawn into exposing those in the wake of Nelli's death.
