AKA’s parents approve of fans who wish to visit his grave. The tomb of AKA, actual name Kiernan Forbes, has been transformed into a shrine for his followers known as the Megacy since his passing almost three months ago. However, the rapper’s parents have expressed their support despite the flow of visitors to his final resting place at Heroes Acre in West Park Cemetry.
In February, unidentified attackers shot and killed AKA in Durban. Kairo Forbes, the 35-year-old hitmaker’s sole child, was left behind. Fans of AKA are allowed to pay their respects at his tomb, according to Lynn and Tony Forbes in an interview with You Magazine.
Mom Lynn said: “I realised that when you have a son like Kiernan, you need to be willing to share him with the world. I see the Megacy as my children, and I appreciate the love and support”. Dad Tony, the acts of kindness from AKA’s fans are heartwarming. He added: “So many people have shared the impact that Kiernan and his music had on their lives. It’s made us all so proud.
The hitmaker’s parents reportedly also want to honor his memory by giving back to the Megacy by assisting up-and-coming artists.

Tony added: “I’d like to help develop other artists to become as good as AKA, if not better. As a family, we have the resources to put our energy behind projects that can produce more artists. Meanwhile, AKA’s parents took his four Metro FM awards to his grave, a day after the music ceremony.
The following categories include the four Metro FM Awards that the late rapper won. Just two weeks after his horrific death, AKA’s posthumous album Mass Country was made public. Many friends and followers claim that the hitmaker “knew” it would be his final musical effort.
The star’s parents and their granddaughter visited his ultimate resting place at the West Park Cemetry in Johannesburg after the star’s appearance at the awards show. In Heroes Acre, the rapper is buried beside legends of the music industry including Mandoza and Robbie Malinga.
