Video: Tony Forbes stuns Mzansi with his blonde hair, looks exactly like AKA

Tony Forbes has been described as an older, wiser version of AKA in so many ways. From his physical features to the sound of his voice and even his love of old-school music.

But the father of two had fans of Supa Mega doing a double take with his bleached blonde new look.

In 2018, the rapper real name Kiernan Forbes showed off his peroxide hairstyle.

This week, Tony Forbes shared a clip of himself talking about the new healthy habits he has adopted in 2024.

However, his resolutions weren’t the only thing new. Tony sported a head full of bleached hair, reminiscent of AKA’s Touch My Blood album era.


At the time, the rapper was ripped to shreds over the look – which many tweeps claimed channeled cartoon character Johnny Bravo.

AKA featured his new look in his music videos for tracks Fela In Versace and Jika.

While Tony Forbes was his son’s spitting image, his fans agreed he sounded just like him, too.

@Iezldula_thevii said: “It’s heartbreaking and comforting.”

@yvettediedriks commented: “At least we somehow still have a piece of Mega through your voice.”
