The 22-year-old responds by saying she’s shopping, before giggling.In another video, Forbes, Tembe, and two other males are seen enjoying lunch at a restaurant with a view of Table Mountain.

In a subsequent video, Forbes is heard saying: “We’re offering Forbes tours, ain’t we, baby?” to which a happy-sounding Tembe responds: “Of course.”

The uploaded content gave fans a glimpse of the couple’s life, taking them through a day that would be Tembe’s last hours alive.

The last video that Forbes uploaded was a close-up of Tembe having a good time at an event Forbes performed at while the last update was a picture of the 22-year-old in a white tank top and black shorts.

The couple’s families expressed shock and said they were still coming to terms with Tembe’s death.

Through a joint statement released yesterday, the families said: “She was an exceptional and gifted young woman, with so much life ahead of her. She had a sweet nature about her and was always nurturing to those around her. Her fiancé is currently inconsolable and is surrounded by family and close friends.”

Netcare 911 spokesperson Shawn Herbst said paramedics on the scene said a female had allegedly jumped from the 10th floor of the hotel.

“When paramedics arrived on scene, she had sustained polytraumatic injuries. She was in a critical condition and they started a full life-support resuscitation. Unfortunately her injuries were too severe and she was declared deceased,” said Herbst.

Western Cape Police media liaison Captain FC van Wyk said police were investigating an inquest case.

There’s A Twist In Nelli Tembe’s Story: Security Guard Comes With New Information

It looks like people are now coming out to mention what happened on that fateful morning. Now, one thing about this story is that there is a need to keep informing people about anything that eye witnesses bring forward.

If that happens, people cannot make too many assumptions, this is sad already, especially for the family and friends.

The last thing that they would want is to keep reading different stories about 22-year-old Nelli Tembe on social media that are not true. Now, it turns out that the first person who got to the scene after Nelli’s fall was a security guard, he is probably a security guard at that very same building.

He described how he heard a scream and then moments later, there was a loud thud, as he puts it, he thought that there had been a car accident.

When he got there, he realised that it was a body of a young woman, one can only imagine what was going through this man’s mind. The security guard requested to remain anonymous, this information might be important.

Who knows, maybe he might be asked to describe everything in more detail, if he can. Another thing is that it seems like there are a lot of versions of this story here.

It would be preferable for people to be told just how everything unfolded, we are now waiting for more updates, hopefully from the family. It could be that they are the ones who have an idea of how everything happened that morning.

The family asked that they should be given some space and that is understandable because this is their loved one who lost a life here.

It is necessary that they get all the time that they need, maybe when the time is right, they will tell us more about Nelli, what was happening in her life during the past few weeks and that is if they know.

Was there anything weird that was noticed about how going about her everyday life? Those are the questions, at least the security guard has offered some information.

Here are the latest details on Nelli Tembe’s death.

An investigation into the death of AKA’s fiancée Anele “Nelli” Tembe is ongoing as new information about her death emerges.

Nelli died on Sunday at the Pepper Club Hotel in Cape Town, apparently after falling from the hotel’s 10th floor.

After photographs of police blocking the road at the hotel circulated on social media on Sunday morning, the nation was shocked to learn of Nelli’s murder.

The couple was seen on AKA’s Instagram Stories just hours before the death, shopping at the Maxhosa store at the V&A Waterfront before having lunch with friends. After that, they were spotted at Ayeyep Lifestyle Bar, where the rapper was playing.

Witnesses at the scene heard a yell, then a “loud doef” whistle, and finally a man shouting.

Shawn Herbst, a Netcare 911 spokesperson, said Nelli died at the scene.

Herbst said, “When paramedics arrived on the scene, she had suffered polytraumatic injuries.”

“She was in critical condition, and they began resuscitation with full life support. Sadly, her injuries were too grave, and she was pronounced dead.”

The hotel received a call at 7.30 a.m. about an “incident” involving a 22-year-old girl, according to general manager Efi Ella.

“The case is being looked into. It’s a 22-year-old woman, and police are currently investigating. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more information,” Ella said.

Capt FC van Wyk, a spokesman for the Western Cape police, confirmed that crime scene investigators were searching for evidence at the hotel.

“Cape Town Central police are looking into an inquest case following an incident at a hotel this morning at around 7.45 a.m. on the corner of Loop and Bloem streets in the CBD, where the body of a 22-year-old woman was discovered deceased,” Van Wyk said.

AKA and Nelli’s families issued a joint statement in which they requested privacy and time to heal.

“I thought it was a car crash and we went to look, and at first we didn’t see anything, and then someone shouted that there was someone lying on the street, we went closer and saw a naked young woman, she was still breathing at that time,” security guard said.
After the 22-year-old died on Sunday morning, lots of speculations surrounding her death flew on social media. Though, it was reported that she died at the five-star Pepperclub Hotel in central Cape Town.
