From dancing in the kitchen to cosy snaps , AKA and his bae Nelli are proof that love still conquers all. The pair got the socials in a mess last week when they announced that they got engaged.
He posted a picture of a lady's hand with a sizable rock on her ring finger on his social media with absolutely no caption, leaving us all guessing.
Twitter obviously had a lot to say; some were happy, others saying say it will end in tears, others shocked at the fact that he gave up two well known successful women for a 21-year-old.
The guy left 2 well known celebrities for an ordinary girl. It just goes to show. Love is not about status

But surely we all should have figured it out by now that men don't settle down because of the right woman. Rather, they settle down because they are finally ready for the commitment.
Whichever woman they are dating when they ready is the one they will settle down with, and it's not necessarily the best or the prettiest, just the one who happened to be at the right place at the right time ... Sounds pretty hectic right?
It is almost a year since he posted a tweet saying ‘Find yourself a lekker 21 year old broer. Trust me.” AKA has found love and is on his way to the aisle.
Nelli Tembe also took to social media to share her excitement about becoming AKA’s fiancee. She posted a similar picture of her hand and ring. Though her accounts are private, the post was captioned:
“21/02/21 — on this day I said YES to the love of my life and best friend
“Words cannot describe how grateful I am to be your life partner. Even through the highs and lows, you have always stood by me and I thank you Kiernan Jarryd Forbes for loving me wholeheartedly and never giving up on us,” she continued.
“Cheers to the beginning of forever. 4L boo,” she added.
Although Tembe seems to want to keep her life private, however AKA has never shied away from flaunting his bae.
AKA has previously dated two powerhouses of South African entertainment. He was in a relationship and had a child with DJ Zinhle, and has dated Bonang Matheba. In a tweet from a while back, AKA said Nelli Tembe was the first non-celebrity he has dated since 2008.
