He released the song Tears Run Dry in memory of his partner, who who allegedly fell to her death from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town on Sunday, April 11.

In the song, the star talks about his heartbreak, and he’s also reminiscing on the good memories they shared. He also expresses how he misses the love of his life.

“First thing on my mind when I wake up, I cannot feel sunshine cause you’re ... nothing else can replace us ... tried to break down and cry but all my tears run dry,” says AKA.

“I saw you in my dreams, maybe that’s why I’m terrified to sleep, not because I don’t want to look you up again, but because when I wake up, reality gets deep.”

In July, the National Prosecuting Authority announced that the case of Tembe’s death had been re-opened. This comes after reports that the inquest concluded in May.

In a statement sent to IOL Entertainment, Western Cape NPA spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila said the NPA had returned the case to the police, a standard procedure when a person dies of unnatural causes.
