AKA slammed the insinuations, labelling them as an “attempt to disparage his name and Anele’s character”.

“What makes it even sadder is that the knowledge that a number of the people, she and that i loved and entrusted with our deepest troubles, are now using those as weapons to line a negative narrative on my character.

“I am a fanatical and person . What i will be able to not do and represent is watching people plan to disparage my name and, importantly, Anele’s to suit a narrative we both never signed up for,” said AKA.

The rapper admitted that he and Nellie had faced troubles within the ir relationship but said he refused to be drawn into exposing those in the wake of Nelli’s death.

Every story has two sides then does every video, image, and message.”

Alcohol which is overused and medicines . Fellow South Africans we better awaken and smell the coffee, we’ve a significant problem with drug abuse .

“I cannot allow an unfortunate narrative to travel unchallenged, a narrative that irks me to without stopping … that’s ‘Anele was chronically suicidal’. All I can say is, until Anele turned 21, not one member of her family, my family would have associated her with suicide,” he said.
