The South Africa rapper, Kiernan Forbes known as AKA’s, fiancee, Anele Tembe known as Nellie, is dead, after she reportedly jumped off the 10th floor of Pepperclub hotel building in Cape Town, South Africa.
Tembe was reported to be battling depression, but died in an incident at the hotel.
The South African police have commenced investigation into the matter to unravel the incident.
“Cape Town Central police are investigating an inquest case after an incident at a hotel this morning, at about 7.45am, on the corners of Loop and Bloem Street, in Cape Town CBD, where the body of a 22-year-old woman was found deceased,” the SAPS spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk, said.
According to local media report, a security-man in the hotel gave an account of the incident that he heard that somebody screamed, before a loud thud followed, at around 7.30am on Sunday morning.
The security-man, who remains anonymous, said: “I thought it was a car crash and we went to look. At first we didn’t see anything, but then somebody shouted that there was someone lying on the street.
“We went closer and saw a naked young woman. She was still breathing at that time.”
Last month, the rapper was reported to have paid the bride price of Nellie Tembe, while their wedding was underway.
Meanwhile, the local media stated that Sony Music Africa has expressed their condolences to the award-winning rapper, AKA.
