Tears as Nelli Tembe’s body arrives in Durban ahead of memorial service on |
South African rapper, AKA’s late wife Nelli Tembe’s body has arrived in Durban as the family plans her memorial service and funeral.
According to TshisaLIVE, Nelli’s body left Cape Town and arrived at King Shaka International Airport on Wednesday morning, accompanied by her fiancé, rapper AKA.
The star will be among mourners who will celebrate the life of Nelli at the memorial service on Thursday, which will be streamed live for people to pay their respects.
Nelli died on Sunday after apparently falling from the 10th floor of the five-star Pepperclub Hotel in central Cape Town.
A funeral service is planned for later in the week, but details around both services have yet to be announced by the family.
AKA had just paid lobola a few weeks ago and the two were well on their way to becoming Mr and Mrs before her tragic death in Cape Town.
At the time Kiernan Forbes took to Instagram to share the good news. Although he did not share too many details, he posted a picture of himself and for other men all suited up with a love and cow emojis as a caption.
In the comment section, Nellie wrote “My Husband” followed by a love emoji, to which AKA responded “My Wife”.
