DURBAN: Mr Tembe has pleaded with social media influencers to stop implicating him and his family in the murder of rapper Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes.

The rapper and African Icon, AKA was assassinated on Friday night outside Wish restaurant on Florida Road, Durban. AKA was set to perform later that night at YuGo, a nightclub on Mathews Meyiwa Road.

The assassination of AKA came almost two years after Mr Moses Tembe’s daughter, Anele “Nellie”, who was engaged to be married to AKA, died in 2021 after falling from the 10th floor at the Pepper Club Hotel in Loop Street, Cape Town.

Social media users have been naming Tembe as a possible suspect in AKA’s killing following the death of his daughter.

Tembe, in a statement released on Thursday afternoon, said: “It is with grave concern that my family and I have had to endure a flurry of posts on various social media platforms that accuse me and members of my family of being involved in the death of Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes.

“These accusations are untrue and without substance. I categorically state that my family feel the pain of the Forbes family and would never be involved in an abhorrent act of this nature.

“Whilst I value the principle of freedom of speech, these cruel and libellous utterances inflict personal and emotional harm on us.

“After having to deal with the tragedy of the untimely passing of our daughter, this senseless crime has taken a further emotional toll on us.

“I respectfully request the individuals making these baseless statements to refrain from doing so,” he said.

Tembe had also offered his condolences to AKA’s family.

Meanwhile, the family of Kiernan Forbes has confirmed that the release of the late rapper’s latest album will still go ahead, despite his tragic death.

Mass Country is set to be released on the 24th of February, according to a statement released on the muso’s social media pages on Thursday.

“In the last two years, Mass Country has become AKA’s entire world. The Supa Mega constantly kept the album release momentum and anticipation high,” reads the statement.

According to AKA’s long-time friend and business partner, Raphael Benza, the rapper worked hard on his latest music offering as he believed in giving his fans only quality work.

“The energy and the expectations from the Megacy fuelled him to make a masterpiece. We are delighted, even at our saddest moment, to share the music he left behind for us for eternity.”

Another song off the new album, Company, will be released on Friday, the same day as the memorial service that will be held in the late rapper’s memory.

The single was recorded in Los Angeles during his January holiday.
