Frost who lost his baby mama, Zibo Bantsi, who passed away on Thursday, 1 October 2020, after experiencing complications whilst giving birth to their daughter, said the pain of losing your partner is permanent.

"The pain of losing your partner is a different kind of grief, all the plans you made for the future together that will now never be, the happy memories that now haunt you at night, it's crippling and I don't think it ever stops feeling like that, unfortunately."
Tembe tragically died fter she jumping out of the 10th-floor in a hotel in Cape Town on Sunday morning. Messages of condolences have been pouring in to her family and friends.

According to Drum magazine, her family and in-laws hosted a Zoom prayer meeting recently and her family spokesperson Clive Manci said she had many things in common with her father. "Nelli had so much in common with her father. Her love for food, her stubborn nature, and charisma. Her father loved her and raised his kids well. At a young age he allowed them to experience the best of education and travel the world."

AKA's father Tony Forbes said they are heartbroken by her passing "We extend our family's deepest sympathy. No words can take away the pain you feel, we feel the pain with you," quoted by the publication.

He said they created fond memories with her daughter-in-law during her last days. "I met her during the lockdown on the many calls my son had talking about music, it was very easy talking to her. In the last conversation we had, she was happy, radiant, and beautiful that day. We got to share one of the happiest days of her life and that of Kiernan's."

Her sister TV actress Nondumiso Tembe also penned a heartfelt post on social media describing how heartbroken he is.

"My baby, Ngiphelelwe amazwi - Words fail me right now. We will hold you in our hearts forever. Lala kahle, mbali yethu (rest well our flower). Thank you so much to everyone who has sent kind words of comfort for our family, ngiyathokoza kakhulu (thank you very much)," she wrote.
