I’m told AKA is grief-stricken.

According to the local tabloid, Daily Sun, the couple was at the hotel as part of the celebrations for one of AKA’s friends.

Another publication, the Sunday World reports that Nellie Tembe committed suicide and that she was “suffering from depression.”

The newspaper referenced an incident in November last year where it says a video of Nellie circulated showing her attempting to jump off the Hilton Hotel.

“AKA has been reportedly helping her to deal with depression and even got her into counselling,” the Sunday World reported.

Nellie and AKA only got engaged in February after dating for several months. The rapper suggested that he may have paid lobola a few weeks ago following a cryptic tweet.
