Cassper Nyovest, a longtime rival of AKA has confirmed that he will not be attending his memorial and funeral.
AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes and a friend Tebello ‘Tibz’ Motsoane were gunned down on Friday evening, 10 February 2023 in Durban’s Florida Road.
On Twitter, a fan asked Cassper Nyovest if he will be going to the memorial and funeral of the late AKA, and he responded that he would not be able to.
“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.” He added.
Cassper and AKA have been beefing since 2014, and even though there were glimpses of a friendship or some sort of reconciliation, it never really happened.
When AKA died, Cassper used his Twitter account to write a message of condolence for AKA and Tebello Motsoane’s families.
“My sincere condolences go out to Kiernan and Tebello’s families, colleagues and fans. May their souls rest in peace and their legacies be celebrated. May the Good lord be with all of you at this sad time,” wrote Cassper.
Cassper Nyovest also told his fans to send their love and support to the Megacy and AKA’s family.
