AKA’s friend and brand manager, Mahlatse Sethole or Zazboy, has paid tribute to the rapper – real name Kiernan Forbes – on the first anniversary of his death.

On 10 February 2023, Forbes and friend Tebello Tibz Motsoane were shot and killed outside the Wish on Florida restaurant in Durban. He was reportedly en route to his performance at nightclub Yu-Go.

Before the fateful shooting, AKA enjoyed a dinner with a group of his close friends, including Don Design, Scorpio Siya, Benny Maverick, and others.


On his Instagram Story, Zazboy – responsible for marketing all AKA’s gigs – posted a touching tribute. It read: “Our lives changed forever. 10 February 2023.”

He also posted a pic of himself with both Forbes and Motsoane with the caption: “We love you brothers.”

Zazboy later posted a clip of him visiting Kiernan’s grave in Westpark Cemetry.

Also remembering Forbes was his childhood friend Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh, who posted a pic of their rap group Entity.

“Rest easy, Kiernan,” he tweeted.


Meanwhile, AKA’s pals Don Design, Scorpio Siya, Lusaso “Saso” Ngcobo, and Wish on Florida owner Benny Maverick have yet to address their friends’s first anniversary of death.
