AKA has taken a much-need temporary break from his sponsorship duties. Supa Mega has taken a step back from his work as the brand partner of Cruz Vodka to deal with his personal stuff following the untimely passing of his fiancée Nelli Tembe on 11 April.
The Fela in Versace hitmaker shared that he has engaged with his business partners and they've agreed to give him time to deal with his personal matters.
Daily Sun reports that Mega said he feels it is best that he temporarily steps back from his Cruz Vodka duties as he is still grieving the loss of the love of his life. He said he didn't take the decision lightly but took it after reflecting on the events of the past few days.
Briefly News reported that AKA has, through his lawyers, released a statement to reassure fans that he is not an abuser as depicted from some leaked videos. Speaking to TshisaLive, AKA’s lawyer, Rudolph Baloyi, senior associate at Mabuza Attorneys, said he wanted to stop the speculation that AKA is abusive.
According to the publication, the lawyer said that Mr Forbes takes the current events playing out since this past Sunday very seriously. According to Baloyi, the screenshots that have been circulating social media do not reflect what was actually happening on that specific day.
In related news, Briefly News reported that AKA's father has spoken out in his son's defence in the wake of calls to mute the rapper, who's been under pressure from social media users over the death of his fiancée Anele “Nelli” Tembe.
Investigations into her death have continued prompting social media users to use the hashtag, #MuteAKA. His father Tony Forbes came to his son's defence during an interview with TshisaLIVE. He urged people not to act too hastily and seek to cancel AKA without all the facts. Tony responded to Women For Change, an NPO which champions the rights of women.
He said that the NPO is a necessary organisation but the allegations against his son need to be examined properly and that the videos which have surfaced of AKA breaking down a door need to examined in the context of the situation, according to The Sowetan.
