AKA left fans a little confused on Saturday, May 8, when he released another statement discussing the death of Anele 'Nelli' Tembe.
The statement slammed suggestions that he had anything to do with her passing. It all became clear on Sunday morning, May 9, when a local publication reported that they were in possession of a video showing AKA allegedly abusing the late Tembe.

News24 reported that they are in possession of a video showing AKA breaking down a door to get to the 22-year-old, who was hiding out in the bedroom. The incident allegedly occurred in their Bryanston home on March 13.
The publication further reported that a friend of Nelli has spoken out that AKA had previously been abusive towards the deceased and "smashed her face against the wall".
In AKA's statement released the day before, the rapper said that he will not stand back and watch people smear his name.
"I am a passionate and emotional person, what I will not stand for is watching people attempt to disparage my name and importantly Anele's character to suit a narrative we both never signed up for."
The statement went on to insist that Nelli committed suicide.
"What I will say as my truth, I was and still am madly in love with a girl carrying whatever past traumas she faced before I met her."
