“I Broke Down”: Watch Kairo Forbes Comforts Inconsolable Nadia Nakai At Dad AKA’s Memorial

South Africans have been crushed at the sad scene of a teary k walking over to comfort an inconsolable Nadia Nakai at her dad AKA’s memorial.

The memorial service of slain rapper AKA, real name Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, was held yesterday at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. In attendance were Mzansi’s musicians, actors, politicians, and other dignitaries like Oskido, DJ Tira, and NaakMusiQ.

Today was the first time the public saw AKA’s daughter Kairo Forbes since his tragic, gruesome cold-blood murder on 10 February in Durban. Little Kairo walked in with her mother, DJ Zinhle.

As she sat through, hearing everyone speak glowingly of their memories of her father, AKA, she was breathing heavily, and her mom had to pat her to calm her down.

Kwaito legend Kabelo Mabalane, who was AKA’s spiritual mentor, reflected on how AKA found God in the last few years, especially after the death of Anele “Nellie” Tembe. In the end, he prayed.

During a musical interlude, Nadia Nakai broke down uncontrollably. At that painful, heart-rending moment, Kairo got up, walked seven seats, and comforted her step-mom Nadia Nakai with a cute hug. Her grandmother also joined in embracing Nadia and tried to be there for each other.
