Hip Hop reigns supreme as we watch young rappers in Mzansi show off the best of this music culture. Sadly, one of the country’s most iconic Hip Hop stars, AKA’s tragic passing has left the Love and Hip Hop SA cast distraught as they grapple with his sudden death. Popularly known as the Supa Mega by his adoring fans, Kiernan Forbes was close friends with Da L.E.S and Yanga Chief. They both dropped numerous hit tracks with AKA over the years. In the third episode of Love and Hip Hop South Africa we see the show’s cast navigate through the shockingly devastating news of AKA’s passing as they share their tributes to their industry peer.
The cast also speaks about the fear that is looming in South Africa regarding the crime stats and tragic losses from senseless killings in the country. “I’m sitting here and I’m thinking, do we even have enough money to protect ourselves, and furthermore who am I protecting myself from,” says Gigi Lamayne. Da L.E.S hosted an intimate memorial with the rest of the cast where AKA’s dad Tony Forbes joined them to honour how AKA impacted their careers. Here Tony Forbes shared how he has been coming to terms with the loss of his son and his final moments with him ahead of his burial.
