Tony Forbes speaks on fighting Cassper Nyovest in a boxing match

Popular South African rapper Cassper Nyovest was seen in a picture with his late rap rival’s dad Tony Forbes, just days after claiming he has unreleased music with the latter.

The “Fill Up” hitmaker surprised the public with news that he had visited the family of the slain star following the latter’s death.

Cassper and AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes were in a well-publicized feud that lasted almost a decade.

In February, Forbes was shot and killed by an unknown attacker outside a Durban restaurant.


In a pic posted on his Instagram account, Tony Forbes revealed his unexpected visit from Cassper Nyovest.

He shared in the caption: “Respect…you came in our darkest moment. Thank you. We remember…away from the cameras. God bless”.

But Tony cheekily teased a fight with Cassper – as his son AKA did. He added: “P.S. When you signing them papers. I told you I will take you”.

The heartwarming post was felt by Tony Forbes’s Instagram followers, who claimed that AKA was “probably smiling” at the moment.

@preshpreshprecious: “This family is full of love. All I’ve been witnessing after AKA’s death is nothing but love and no drama.”

@masa_temba: “Forbes is probably smiling right now. It’s all love over here, Uncle Tony.”

@nthabs5: “I wish the world had your kind of love, Uncle Tony”
