“Is He Coming Back?”: Lynn Forbes Reveals Heartbreaking Comments From Kairo After AKA’s Death
AKA’s mother, Lynn Forbes, has opened up about the difficult moment when she had to tell her granddaughter, Kairo, about the tragic news of her father’s passing.
Lynn Forbes recently spoke on eNCA’s News Night about the aftermath of her son’s tragic murder.
AKA, whose real name was Kiernan Forbes, was fatally shot by unknown gunmen outside a restaurant in Durban over two months ago, and despite ongoing investigations, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
During an exclusive interview, Lynn Forbes shared her reflections on how AKA’s immediate family first learned of his tragic passing.
However, the most heartbreaking moment was having to inform his daughter Kairo about the news.
Lynn disclosed that she was given the difficult task of telling Kairo about her father’s death the morning after it occurred.
“I told her that we have some really sad news…Your dad died”.
Kairo then asked Lynn what had happened to her father. Lynn continued:
“I said some bad people hurt him….they shot him. She cried terribly”.
After having some time to process the information, Lynn Forbes mentioned that Kairo asked her a devastating question.
“She asked: ‘But, he’s coming back, right? He will be ok’. And I had to tell her, ‘No, he’s not coming back, and we have to bury him.’
Lynn added that AKA’s final goodbye to Kairo was just as heartwrenching.
“He said, ‘I’m going to miss you so much. I want you to know that daddy loves you’”.
In a recent interview with You Magazine, Lynn disclosed another heartbreaking statement made by Kairo.
Following AKA’s passing, the family decided to remove a few items from his home, and at some point during this process, Kairo made a poignant comment.
“When we packed his things away, she [Kairo] asked me why we were putting all his awards in boxes because her daddy wouldn’t like that.
“She said, ‘We need to take them out and put them somewhere else where we can see them. You know daddy likes to show off his things, so we can’t put them away’.”
