Death is something that's really hard to deal with. No one is ever prepared for it even though we all know that we are all going to die some day. It always leaves us in shock and heartbreak regardless of whether that person who dies was close to you or not, like celebrities. And it seems like every single year we lose a celebrity but, this year seems to be a bit more exceptional as we are only 4 months into it and already we have lost quite a large number of celebrities.

Most recently we have lost two celebrities who apparently were really great people according to what people have said about them. Their deaths were very much untimely and this actually goes for everyone on this list as no one ever expected their deaths to happen so soon in their lives.

• First we have one of the most recent deaths and it's the death of Nelli Tembe who was AKA's fiancé. Nelli Tembe might not have been a typical celebrity in terms of her being in the entertainment industry or anything like that, she was however associated with a high-profile celebrity and that therefore put her life into the spotlight.

She was soon to get married to AKA, who's a well-known South African rapper and AKA had already paid lobola for her. Many people were very much excited for the couple as they could see the love that they had for each other. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, their love had to end before it even started as Nelli Tembe took her life yesterday. Nelli apparently jumped off from the 10th floor of a Cape Town building that they were at.

Many people were shocked by these news as they were hard to believe. Nelli might have looked really happy to a lot of people as her life looked like it was perfect but she was apparently suffering with depression and she unfortunately lost her battle to the mental illness. Nelli lost her life at just the tender age of 22.
