Rapper AKA has spoken out following the leaked videos and pictures of him and his late fiancee Anele “Nelli” Tembe that are circulating on social media.

The videos were leaked by Anele’s close friend who alleged she was a victim of gender-based violence.

The talented rapper, whose real name is Kiernan Forbes, said the past few weeks are excruciatingly painful for him.

“Beyond handling the loss of Anele, the love of my life, i’m also having to affect the snippets taken out of context of our relationship that found their thanks to social media,” he said.

He said in time he will share his side of his story as everything that was leaked was taken out of context.

“I will share my side of the story in a sincere and honest manner, which can afford me the best of reference to the connection I shared with Anele and both our families. i’m not perfect, she wasn’t without her flaws. But I’m not what events of a previous couple of days have painted me to be. We were crazy and had committed to every other,” he said.

AKA, who may be a brand partner with Cruz Vodka, said he has temporarily taken a step back from his duties.

Anele fell to her death at a Cape Town hotel on 11 April.

“Having had time to reflect on the past few days, I even have engaged with my business partners and that i feel that it’s best that I temporarily step back from my duties with Cruz Vodka as i want this point to specialise in the way forward and affect my personal matter.

“I have done this for the sake of Anele’s memory which can forever be entrenched in my heart, our families and my fans. i’m grateful to my business partners at Cruz Vodka for all their support and understanding of this decision to offer me time. Daily I awaken to the truth that the person i used to be building a future with is not any more, the pain is unbearable. With God’s grace i will be able to remain strong and devour the pieces,” he said.

Anele’s close friend who alleged she was a victim of gender-based violence said they often picked her up from AKA’s house within the early hours of the morning following endless attacks on her by AKA.

“Anele was on numerous occasions physically and emotionally abused by AKA.

My beloved friend was a victim of gender-based violence.

“As women, we’re too quiet about the abuse that’s happening behind closed doors. We must speak out! I’m today speaking out,” wrote the friend.

 

But AKA said the allegations against him are to influence the inquest that was opened after Anele’s death and said tit saddens him that folks, whom he and his late fiancee entrusted with their deepest troubles, are using them as weapons against him.
