AKA took to Twitter to reveal that his relationship with Nellie was indeed tumultuous while not confirming nor denying the accusation.
In his statement, he noted that both himself and Nellie suffered from traumas that they brought into their relationship but he would not expose whatever happened in the confines of that to the world.
AKA further revealed that he was been very cooperative with the police throughout the investigation and knows that many folks are angry because he is yet to be named a suspect in her death.
He asked folks to stop the narratives and innuendos that seems to want to assassinate his character and allow Nellie rest in peace.
