Bonang Matheba is suing Youtuber Rea Gopane for defaming her and dragging her name in the AKA and Nelli Tembe saga. The podcaster alleged that Bonang was the one to introduce cocaine to AKA hence his addiction which then lead to Nelli's death.

Rea Gopane made these allegations on his podcast 'The Rea and Black Step Podcast' on the 9th of May. He claimed to have received intel from Scoop Makhathini.

"Scoop told us that AKA is on coke, and Bonang is the one that got him into cocaine. Scoop told us that, bro, after the interview we had him right here at this place," Rea had said to his co host.

Bonang's legal team contacted him privately but that proved to be unsuccessful, so the letters were then sent publicly. They read in part,

"On Sunday 9 May 2021 you falsely and unlawfully accused Bonang Matheba in a widely published video clip of, inter alia, having introduced AKA (Kieman Jarryd Forbes) to cocaine. In the context of what was being discussed in the video clip this defamatory allegation was exacerbated by the shocking insinuation that the death of AKA's girlfriend Anele (Nellie) Tembe was due to AKA's alleged use of cocaine.

Bonang does not just want an apology, she also wants half a million Rand.

"To this end I am instructed to demand from you, payment of the sum of R500,000 within 10 days. Should this sum not be paid within the time prescribed, I have instructions to issue summons without further notice to you."
