Kiernan 'AKA' Forbes will be remembered in a public memorial on Friday, 17 February.

The Forbes family announced the memorial and funeral details on AKA's social media account on Tuesday.

Per the statement, a public memorial will be held on Friday, 17 February, at the Sandton Convention Centre. The memorial starts at 15:00.

Tickets to attend the memorial are free and available on Webtickets. The memorial will also be live-streamed on the Akaworldwide YouTube page.

AKA: Who will Attend, Miss the Funeral and Memorial

Murdah Bongz is married to DJ Zinhle, who was previously in a relationship with AKA and shared a 7-year-old daughter, Kairo, with the late rapper.

AKA and his long-time friend, Tebello 'Tibz' Motsoane, were shot and killed outside a popular night spot in Durban on Friday night. The Motsoane family announced that a memorial for Tibz will take place on Thursday, 16 February.

Murdah Bongz, will not be at musician AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, funeral. Mohosana is married to DJ Zinhle, and they have one child together. The top female DJ also shares a daughter with the late AKA.

A media statement released by the Forbes family on Tuesday about the rapper’s memorial and funeral arrangements stated that due to cultural protocol, Mohosana will not be in attendance.

"We'd also like to acknowledge our extended family, the Mohosanas for their unwavering support during this time, as Bongani Mohosana will be in absentia." reads the statement.

The news about Mohosana left social media users with some questions about the meaning behind the statement. Those in the know were quick to educate us.

According to the Bapedi culture, Bongz cannot attend AKA’s funeral because both of them were romantically involved with Dj Zinhle. It’s believed that if Murdah Bongz chooses to make an appearance, he might get sick and also pass away.

Meanwhile, Casper Nyovest politely explained that although the two had their beefs, he would have still attended the memorial had he not have work engagements overseas.

“Unfortunately, I’ll be out of the country for work, but if I was around I would’ve went. I would’ve went to the funeral too.

“No matter how you look at it, me and Kiernan shared a lot of great moments together and he contributed to my industry, so I have to pay my respects.” - Online Sources
