It seems as though AKA's interview with Thembekile Mrototo was not such a bad idea after all. The interview reportedly helped detectives cross the rapper out as a main suspect as they were investigating a murder case.

City Press reported that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) passed the inquest back to the police and they are now investigating the incident as a suicide. 

Anele 'Nelli' Tembe died on April 11 after falling 10 stories down at the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town. Her death and circumstances surrounding her death were sketchy as investigators even interviewed DJ Zinhle, AKA's baby mama.

Sources have suggested that AKA may actually be off the hook as the case is reopened. What may have saved the rapper is his interview with Thembekile Mrototo in which he spoke about the the different incidents when his late fiancée attempted to commit suicide.

"After the interview, the matter was closed by the SA Police Service and handed over to the NPA for review. The NPA then reverted and said this was a suicide investigation and what [the police] had provided had elements [of there being] a suspect of murder,” the source City Press.

In the interview, AKA spoke about the nature of their relationship saying Anele had been suicidal multiple times. He even recounted the many times she threatened to take her own life.

"In my past time with Anele, it was not the first time that she had attempted to do that (harm herself) or threatened to do that. She had done that here in this home and over the phone…she had also threatened to drive her car into the wall and also had to be talked down off the ledge at the Hilton in Durban.
