AKA’s mother, Lynn Forbes opens up on losing her son

Lynn Forbes has spoken out about her pain on social media following the death of her son, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, popularly known as AKA.

It is every parent’s worst nightmare to lose a child, especially when it comes unexpectedly and tragically. On February 10, Kiernan “AKA” Forbes was fatally shot outside a popular restaurant in Durban.

As a result of the shooting, his lifelong friend, celebrity chef Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane, was also killed. As AKA’s long-awaited album Mass Country was released today, Lynn posted a heartbreaking picture of her viewing AKA’s body in his coffin before his burial. The past two weeks have taken a toll on her, especially the mornings.

Lynn said her heart was shattered into millions of pieces. She wrote, “Oh my heart … 💔The last two weeks have been surreal, more specifically the mornings. Waking up every morning, being reminded that this nightmare will never end, is the most excruciating pain I have ever felt. My heart is shattered into millions of pieces. I love you Kiernan,” she wrote.

AKA’s girlfriend Nadia Nakai recently took to social media to break her silence over the murder of AKA, after the burial of the rapper on Saturday.

She wrote, “My heart is shattered. This is not what our future was meant to look like. I can’t believe I said my final goodbye to you yesterday. I’ll never see you again for the rest of my lifetime? You loved me loud and proud, thank you baby. Protected me, prayed for me, inspired me. I find it hard to breathe let alone find the words to explain how much I love you,” she wrote.

The rapper expressed her desire to spend the rest of her life with AKA, saying that she thought she would spend her entire life with him, but AKA is the one who spent his whole life with her.

“I’m going to miss all the special moments we’ve had. This really hurts. I can’t come to terms with the fact that I’ll never hear you say you love me, I’ll never hear your laugh. We had plans.

“There is no pain bigger than the pain of losing you. I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with you, I realise you’re the one who spent the rest of your life with me. I don’t know why things happen the way they do, but I’m questioning God right now. Why would He bring us together only to take you away. I don’t understand. I don’t know how I’m going to do this, going on with my life without you. I just can’t. Rest in peace Kiernan, I love you.”
