Almost a month before Anele "Nelli" Tembe fell to her death at a Cape Town hotel on 11 April this year, she locked herself inside a room to hide from her fiancé, Kiernan "AKA" Forbes.

In images released to News24 for the first time, the award-winning rapper can be seen using his hands to violently break down a wooden door to enter the bedroom in their apartment in Bryanston, Johannesburg where Tembe was hiding. The incident is alleged to have taken place on 13 March.
