Andile Sicetsha - 11.04.2021

it’s believed Nelli Tembe was involved in a fatal incident. A statement from the family is expected in due course.

Tensions are rife on social media after claims were made that Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes’ fiance Nelle Tembe had allegedly jumped from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel, in Cape Town.

Social media abuzz with speculation about Nelli

Renowned microblogger @AdvBarryRoux, who has gained immense credibility over the years for being first to the inside scoop, turned Twitter on its head, on Sunday morning, when he reported that 22-year-old Tembe had “just jumped out of the 10th floor” of the Cape Town boutique hotel.

The tweet was accompanied by two images showing a string of police tape cordoning off the outside area of the hotel.

Pepperclub Hotel responds to social media furore

Pepperclub Hotel General Manager Efi Ella spoke to investigative reporter Aron Hyman, confirming that, indeed, the establishment was aware of an incident involving a 22-year-old jumping from the 10th floor on Sunday morning, at approximately 07:30.

Furthermore, renowned reporter Kgopolo Mphela recently confirmed in a tweet that “rapper AKA’s fiance Nellie was involved in a fatal accident.”

Nothing has been heard from AKA at this time. However, we understand that the rapper is said to be grief-stricken after the alleged events that transpired at his hotel room.

Based on the rapper’s activity on Instagram, it appears the couple was spending quality time in Cape Town, a week or so after finalising marital customs at Tembe’s hometown in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).

This is a developing story.
