- The amount Kiernan 'AKA' Forbes paid for lobola towards Nelli Tembe has become a hot topic
- This comes after clashing reports about the alleged R300k have emerged, rumours swirled that the rapper forked out the whopping amount but the Tembe family shut it down
- In a statement, Mr Tembe, father to Nelli, said that it was taboo to discuss such things but the amount was nowhere near R300k
On the latest episode of MacG’s ‘Podcast And Chill’ the team chatted about the alleged amount that AKA had paid to the Tembe family for Anele 'Nelli' Tembe's Lobola.
According to rumours, the rapper forked out a massive R300 000 in dowry. However, it seems there was huge exaggeration to that amount.
Speaking on the podcast, Sol Phenduka said that Moses Tembe denied receiving that much.
Sol paraphrased Moses Tembe’s official response and said:
“It’s in the papers that it was R300 and apparently that’s a lie. They said we’re a family that is very secretive, would never even talk about Lobola and even go to the extent of lying about it we find that… I’m paraphrasing we find that disgusting or whatever. I heard R65/R64k.”
According to Tembe, the amount they agreed on was not even discussed with Nelli.
A few social media users have shared their thoughts on the subject.
“So gatwe AKA lied a re he paid 300k for lobola... ayi.”
“Kiernan did not disclose the amount of money he paid for lobola.”
“uBaba ka Kiernan womthetho has a lot to say yaz... uthini mayethi “Lying about the figure paid for Lobola.”
Meanwhile Briefly News reported that it's been a few days since AKA's interview with journalist Thembekile Mrototo about Nelli Tembe's death aired and there have been a lot of questions raised. A body language expert weighed in on AKA's attitude during the interview when she was hosted on MacG's Podcast and Chill session on YouTube.
The body language expert is named Courtney Kleu and she is the owner of The School of Etiquette. They teach the ins-and-outs of body language and she had something to say about how AKA behaved during his interview.
"We see him saying they said really mean things to each other and he shows anger. There's the thoroughgoing of the eyes and the eyebrows and you know the sounds that are congruent with what he's saying. He is recalling some nasty things and he shows anger," said Courtney.
