Back in February 2012, AKA had dedicated his song Finessin to the love of his life Nelli Tembe. Tembe was a reserved and private person, unlike most of AKA's previous partners.
The couple were set to get married near future and AKA was head of heels in love with her.
His previous girlfriends had been high profile celebrities such as DJ Zinhle and Bonang Matheba.
