South African rapper, AKA has released statement to address the nature of his relationship with his late fiancée Anele Tembe.
He dismissed allegations that he was abusing his fiance.
This comes after videos and pictures of him breaking down the door trying to get to Anelle and pictures of the bruised Anelle Tembe.
AKA’s statement is dated 8, May 2021 and it describes how his relationship with Anelle was before she died.
AKA slammed the insinuations, labelling them as an attempt to disparage his name and Anele’s character.
“What makes it even sadder is the knowledge that some of the people, she and I loved and entrusted with our deepest troubles, are now using those as weapons to set a negative narrative on my character.
“I am a passionate and emotional person. What I will not do and stand for is watching people attempt 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 in their relationship.
“As numb as I was at Anele’s funeral, I took in every word imparted, the direct ones and all those filled with innuendos. I will not be part of speaking on or exposing our troubles as a couple, to defend myself from one-sided views that are portrayed out of their full context. Every story has two sides and so does every video, image and message.”
Most social media fans blamed the rapper for Anele’s death while some were sympathetic.
