-Anele 'Nelli' Tembe's funeral took place at the International Convention Centre in Durban on Friday morning
- The ceremony trended on social media as Mzansi weighed in on the many bombshells that were dropped
- One of the speakers at the funeral was a pastor that delivered a scathing sermon targeting the misinterpretation of obsession and love
The pastor speaking the late Anele ‘Nelli’ Tembe’s funeral service found himself trending on social media users as Mzansi weighed in on his heavy words. His sermon stressed about the difference between love, obsession and affection.
He said that there was no good end when one couldn’t distinguish the difference.
His words, although full of wisdom, seemed laced with shade directed at Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes, according to social media users. Many took to the Twitter to voice their support for AKA as he was seemingly bashed during the service.
“YOH! Kunzima I hope AKA recover from this because...Wow! Now the pastor just went in naye yhuu haai thiza. Rest in peace Anele Tembe.”
“Lmao Hai ngeke lmao is this pastor saying anele was obsessed with AKA or vice versa? ANELE Tembe's funeral Bathong lol aowa ngeke.”
“Pastor just said DON’T love someone to the point of being obsessed, yes you can love but don’t be obsessed because obsession leads to acts you wouldn’t have committed while sober-minded. (Anele Tembe)”
“Yhoo this message is necessary but the time and place are so off. This pastor should have just consoled the family and did this sermon on his own time.”
“Kiernan will never be the same any more and that is a fact, they're low-key blaming him for Anele Tembe's tragic incident, I wonder how things are like off cameras, this is sad.”
Meanwhile, Briefly News reported that Anele 'Nelli' Tembe, AKA's late fiancée, is being laid to rest today in KwaZulu-Natal. Her funeral is being streamed on YouTube. Her family is still grief-stricken and AKA is still in disbelief. Speaking at the funeral, Nelli's dad said that his daughter's death was not due to suicide.
Nelli's father, Moses Tembe, said warned the youth about the use of alcohol and drugs. This has caused a stir on social media. Fans are now speculating what really could have happened.
Moses said that his daughter was not suicidal at any point and she did not commit suicide. Nelli fell from the 10th floor of a hotel in Cape Town on Sunday.
He also encouraged AKA to accept Christ into his life in the closing of his speech and acknowledged the pain he is going through.
