Rapper AKA had his followers reaching for the tissues with his Nellie Tembe post on Instagram. AKA celebrated Father's Day yesterday with his beautiful daughter Kairo Forbes. This morning, he decided to also commemorate his late fiancée Nelli Tembe for Father's Day because her father, Mr. Tembe is celebrating his first, without her.

Supa Mega shared what he says is the very last picture he took of Anele Tembe before her untimely demise. He added a very touching caption and said everything he sees reminded him of her. He also sympathized with her father Moses Tembe who had lost a daughter and is celebrating Father's Day without her.

As much as he enjoyed Father's Day with his daughter Kairo Forbes, he said it was a very difficult for him. As a father, he slipped into Mr. Tembe's shoes for a split second and said he cannot even begin to imagine how losing a child would feel like.

In the message, he wrote that he prays for Nellie's family and also prays for his as well.

"Fathers Day was very difficult for me. Difficult because as much as I have lost you, as a father I cannot even imagine what it feels like to lose a child, especially someone as amazing as you. This is the last picture I took of you, and this is how I choose to remember you. I pray for your family every single day, as I do for mine. We miss you so much Anele. So so much. Everything reminds me of you," he wrote on IG.

Anele Tembe lost her life on April 11 when she apparently jumped from the 10th floor at a Pepper Club Hotel in Cape Town. There were many assumptions surrounding her death including that she was a very suicidal person. During her memorial service though, Moses Tembe denied that his daughter was a suicidal person, pinning the blame on alcohol and drug abuse.

"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. He then goes on to add that as a society, people should caution the youth about the alcohol usage and drug usage as well," Moses' speech read.

AKA then finally broke his silence during an interview with Thembekile Mrototo on BarLeader's YouTube channel. He said some very eye opening things about Anele Tembe including how suicidal she was and had threatened to jump off the balcony on that morning.

An argument had broken off and the two said some very mean things to each other.

A few months after burying her, AKA ruffled many people's feathers when he posted something very offensive. Even though it was not directed towards Anele, many were saying it is too soon for Supa Mega to be posting such.

He posted a video of himself smoking on Instagram and the song audio was Travis Scott's Piss On Your Grave.

Rubu Thulisa, his biggest fan went on to defend AKA. "The last time I checked the song was about unprincipled record label executives. The guy has been a victim of those. Man’s has a “Travis Scott hairstyle “ also happens to be in the” forest” just like in the music video of the song. Kanti yini kangaka? (What is it?)" she asked.
