It’s been over a week since South African rapper Kiernan Forbes was shot and killed in Durban.
Popularly known by his stage name AKA, the slain musician, who died on February 10, was buried on February 18 at a private funeral attended by close friends and family.
However, his fans, “The Megacy”, got to attend his memorial service at the Sandton Convention Centre on February 17.
It was one of the most beautiful services where his family was united and supported one another. His friends all spoke fondly of him, sharing their special moments, which proved that he truly loved his people.
As a person who was a fan of his music, I was shocked to learn that one of my favourite songs, “Sim Dope”, was actually about his childhood best friend.
When Sizwe Dhlomo brought him onto the stage, I was in disbelief to see the actual Sim Dope.
