Even though the ceremony went smoothly, there were a few occurrences that left people puzzled. Firstly, many noticed the melancholic look on rapper AKA's face. Every time the cameras landed on AKA, he was drenched in sadness, as expected.

Secondly, not many were impressed by pastor Patrick Tsela's sermon where he pointed out how troubled the youth is. Social media users felt as though he insinuated that drug usage and excessive alcohol consumption was damaging the youth, and in this case Nelli Tembe as well.

In spite of everything that took place, one occurrence which stood out was the fact that DJ Zinhle was also part of the ceremony - well at least by accident. AKA, with the help of an unnamed person, compiled a short video to pay tribute to his late fiancé. The beautiful video saw Nelli from her early stages of life to the most memorable moments in their relationship. And then a picture of the mother of his child pops up which well, made our eyes pop.

DJ Zinhle was apart oft he slide show and many people saw that it was absolutely disrespectful to the Tembe family as well as Zinhle herself.

Anele Tembe lost her life last week Sunday April 12 after allegedly falling off from the 10th floor of a hotel in Cape Town. She was apparently alive for 30 minutes before the ambulance declared her deceased.

Social media users came up with their own theories stating that Nelli was depressed as this was not the first time she tried to jump off a building.

Her father, Moses Tembe's eulogy denounces any rumours of mental illness saying his daughter was not suicidal neither was she depressed. "I was neither there when Anele met her fate last Sunday. I neither seek to attack any person, nor cast aspersions, nor create suspicions nor stigmatise any mental condition, however I cannot allow an unfortunate narrative go unchallenged. A narrative which is maliciously purveyed in some circles that Anele, my daughter, was chronically suicidal or had suicidal tendencies.

"All I can say is that until she turned 21, Anele would not consider taking her own life as a solution. Not a single member of my family, Anele's family will have ever associated Anele with suicide, it never arose. Living would have never been Anele's challenge," he said.

"As Anele's father, I hereby state categorically that Anele was neither suicidal nor did she commit suicide," he stated.
