Anele Tembe’s Father Mourns AKA

“I feel deep pain for Kiernan’s parents,” said Moses Tembe, the father of the rapper’s late fiancée Anele “Nellie” Tembe, as he extended his condolences to the Forbes family on the death of their beloved son.

“It is with shock that we have learnt of Kiernan’s passing. As a parent, I feel deep pain for Kiernan’s parents, Tony and Lynn, his daughter Kairo and the family at large,” said Moses Tembe.

“Kiernan was an extraordinary and talented musician. His music contributes meaningfully to South Africa’s and indeed Africa’s rich musical tapestry. We, therefore, extend our condolences to his extended family – his fans. May his soul rest in eternal peace,” he said.

The rapper was gunned down along with his friend and former manager, Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane on Friday evening while they were standing outside a Durban restaurant.
