South African rapper AKA hints at wedding with Nelli after paying lobola
Mzansi will soon hear wedding bells for rapper AKA real name Kiernan Forbes and his fiancé Nelli Tembe.
After paying lobola (bride price) for Nelli over the weekend, AKA hinted that the wedding tents will soon be pulled up and South Africa will hear wedding bells.
The rapper confirmed that he was now officially off the market as he posted pictures of himself accompanied by a group of men (probably family members) who appeared to be a lobola negotiation team.
He simply captioned the picture with cow and heart emojis.
On Sunday he took to Twitter and hinted that if everything goes according to plan he and Nelli will have their wedding soon.
“The real question now is… who gon’ put up them racks for the wedding content? Kanye Voice Who gon be the Medici Family?!?! Lol Tag your favorite broadcaster…”
The Jika hit maker set twitter ablaze with a cute snap of a diamond engagement ring displayed on Nelli’s ring finger revealing he had popped the big question and his 21-year-old partner said ‘YES!!’
The couple started dating in May 2020 after AKA broke up with his baby mama and South African showbiz guru DJ Zinhle with whom he has a daughter called Kairo Forbes.
He told his fans that for the first time in decades he was enjoying the freedom of dating a woman who is not a celebrity.
Previously AKA dated Bonang Matheba who is also a South African entertainment industry powerhouse. Their relationship ended in 2017.
