Rapper AKA has put his partnership with Cruz Vodka on hold following the recent video/images shared online of him and his late fiancé Anele “Nellie” Tembe.
Tembe, 22, died on April 11 after a fall from the 10th floor of the Pepper Club in Cape Town. Her death is being investigated. Her father, Moses Tembe, has put on record that he does not believe his daughter committed suicide.
A video, which emerged in reports at the weekend, shows AKA breaking down a bedroom door with his hands, apparently trying to get to Tembe, who had locked herself in the room. The alleged incident happened on March 13.
AKA issued a statement saying that the videos were leaked to push a narrative that he was abusive to Tembe and to push the police to investigate the death of his fiancee.
But women’s groups and some stars called for his cancellation. They wanted his music to be stopped playing on television and on radio stations.
