Speaking to reporter, Thembekile Mrototo, on The Bar Leader TV, Aka opened up about his relationship with his late fiancee Anele “Nelli” Tembe and the events leading up to her unfortunate death last month.
Nelli died on April 11 after apparently falling from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town. The circumstances around her death are still being investigated by the police.
AKA expressed his state of grief in the interview about how Anele was his wife-to-be and his whole life."I wake up every day and I’m numb. I find it very hard to get up in the mornings and get through every day. There is so much noise around everything and it’s hard for me to get the time and peace to mourn and grieve".
Despite AKA conveying his feelings after the death of the love of his life, videos and pictures of their allegedly thunderous relationship fuelled rumours and claims about abuse, which AKA denied in the interview.
He does however state that while they were in Cape Town, in the hours leading up to Nelli's death, things got heated in the early hours of the morning between them. AKA continued to say that he removed himself from the situation and decided to gather his belongings and leave the room with hopes that things will simmer down. Things instead got worse to a point where Nelli took off her ring and threw it at him.
"I called reception for security and I kind of tried to remove myself from the situation again, I think maybe out of panic. I didn’t want to be there so I went to the bathroom and when I came out of the bathroom, she wasn’t in the room."
AKA cleared up the rumours of being an abuser by saying that he treated her like gold and he she was his everything and still is.
"I would wake up every day thinking how happy could I make this person today. This was my mission. That piece, that centre of my life is gone. I loved her with all my heart and that’s why she said yes to marrying me.”
AKA says that he started screaming when he saw her laying on the floor and that it was something that was ingrained in him forever.
"It’s not easy to think about or talk about. I remember going out to the balcony. There was a gentleman to my left who was already on his balcony. I remember I started screaming and losing my mind. I ran next door, to where my friend was, and that’s where the nightmare began".
