rumours that the celeb couple’s relationship was a troubled one.

This comes after various discussions surrounding AKA and Nelli’s relationship since she plunged to her death from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town on 11 April.


It was reported that Nelli allegedly had exchanges with Sho Madjozi and Bonang.

Acquaintances, who did not want to be named for fear of victimisation, said Nelli sent John Cena hitmaker Madjozi a WhatsApp message in October last year.

She accused her of phoning the award-winning rapper in the middle of the night when they were sleeping.

It is alleged that two days later, she sent a message to Sho’s manager, Shawn Nkuna, and asked him to forward it to her.

It was later revealed that Sho pulled out of a music video shoot for her collaboration with AKA, Casino, because of the messages.
