‘Share Him With The World’: Sad As AKA’s Parents Approve Grave Visitors
Late SA singer, AKA, actual name Kiernan Forbes, has become a shrine for his Megacy devotees since his demise almost three months ago.
Despite the crowds at Heroes Acre in West Park Cemetery, the rapper’s parents approve.
February gunmen in Durban killed AKA. Kairo Forbes, his only child, survived the 35-year-old hitmaker.
Lynn and Tony Forbes told You Magazine that admirers could visit AKA’s grave.
Mom Lynn said: “I realised that when you have a son like Kiernan, you need to be willing to share him with the world. I see the Megacy as my children, and I appreciate the love and support”.
Dad Tony, the acts of kindness from AKA’s fans are heartwarming. He added: “So many people have shared the impact that Kiernan and his music had on their lives. It’s made us all so proud.”
According to the publication, the hitmaker’s parents also hope to honour his memory by giving back to the Megacy by helping up-and-coming artists.
Tony added: “I’d like to help develop other artists to become as good as AKA, if not better. As a family, we have the resources to put our energy behind projects that can produce more artists”.
