Nelli – the fiancee of rapper AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes – is believed to have suffered from depression.

Meanwhile both the Tembe and Forbes family have remembered Nelli in a special prayer service this week

According to Drum magazine, AKA’s father Tony Forbes described Nelli as ‘a kind, respectful and confident young woman’

“I met her during the lockdown on the many calls my son had talking about music, it was easy talking to her,” he said of their meeting.

Nelli’s cousin Palesa Shabalala also had fond words to say of her, reports Drum

“Anele was my cousin and friend. She always offered advice and took charge of every situation. She was a go-getter, hard worker, had a passion for food, stylish, and had an opinion on every topic,” she said.
