Rapper Nadia Nakai is still trying to pick up the pieces

Rapper Nadia Nakai is still trying to pick up the pieces after her boyfriend AKA’s passing earlier this year. Speaking to the media at a restaurant in Parkmore, a suburb in Johannesburg, the Naaa Meaan hitmaker said that she is still trying to heal from the pain of losing the award-winning rapper. AKA, real name Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, was brutally murdered along with his friend Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane on 10 February outside a restaurant in Durban. The fact that something so tragic had happened, I felt so let down by God,” Sunday World reported her as saying.

She continued: “I had never experienced anything like that ever, it was a shock to my system, because his funeral was the first funeral I ever attended.”Nadia said that she is still learning to heal as grief is new to her. I don’t know what the process to heal is, I don’t feel like I’ve healed. I don’t know what that looks like, because I’ve never done this before. I am learning as I grow, so I wouldn’t be able to advise anyone navigating grief.

“I am still trying to find my way back to God and I feel like that is a story that needs to be told because a lot of people go through that. In September, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Police Commissioner, Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi, gave an update about the ongoing investigation into AKA and Tibz’s murders.

“We as SAPS have identified a few individuals that maybe after discussing with the NPA, we might start bringing them in.”Mkhwanazi further explained that there were many people who were involved, many phone calls that were made during the night and a video footage of the incident that was made public.

“The team has already started with more than 6 TB of data. We downloaded more than 25 cell phones as we speak, and the team is analysing every communication and data in those phones. It’s all from people of interest that might contain information. Cell phones of people who might have been in the area or might have communicated with the deceased. Or any other people associated with the deceased,” Mkhwanazi says.
