It’s been a rocky year for South African rapper AKA. Following the release of his new single with Costa Titch a couple of days ago, the rapper has announced that he will be releasing a joint album titled You’re Welcome with the rising star and the reactions have been missed.

Some tweeps said that they hope the album is as good as the project AKA released with Anatii over five years ago. While many are loving the first drop, some feel that it is a disappointment. The album will be dropping this Friday, 10 September and it is available for pre-order.

The rapper has had his world turn upside down this year. He lost his fiancée in April this year after she reportedly took her life by jumping out of their hotel in Cape Town. She was only 22-years-old when she passed away.

Opening up about the weekend Nellie passed on, the rapper said that their weekend started well as they had lunch with their friends and spent some quality time together before they headed off to his gig later in the day.

“It was a great day. We went down to Cape Town. We went to the V & A, we had lunch with our friends. We had lunch, we went shopping. She got dressed, she looked beautiful as always and then we went to work. We came back around eleven with some friends and the friends left.”

The rapper added that they had a difficult week in their relationship.

“And then prior to that week having left for Cape Town. Myself and Anele had a particularly difficult week in our relationship. Lots of disagreements, arguments and so forth,” he said.

They got into an argument until the early morning. And as things started to take a turn, according to Kiernan, he decided to remove himself from the situation.

“We sat down, we spoke and naturally we started disagreeing again. And things got more heated to the point where it was the early hours of the morning. So at one point, when things started to take a turn I decided that it would be best for me to remove myself from the situation. I decided I was going to gather my belongings and book myself into another room and hopefully things will simmer down.

"Got to the point where we argued more and the thing that really breaks my heart – I have my ring with me – it’s the only thing that I have of her belongings and she took it off and threw it at me. We said very mean things to each other and I left the room. Came back to her room because I had taken her phone.”
He said that Anele had threatened to take her life and he tried to get help from security but it was too late.

“And things took a turn for the worst when we got to a point in the argument where Anele kind of threatened to kill herself. I had called reception for security and kind of tried to remove myself from the situation. And I think out of panic, I didn’t want to be there or feel that this was going to happen. So I went to the bathroom and when I came out of the bathroom she wasn’t in the room. And I looked around the room – she wasn’t there – I get to the balcony and I look down to the street, that’s where she was.” He said in part.
