Lynn Forbes says person who paid for bullet that killed AKA may not be arrested

Slain rapper AKA’s mom, Lynn Forbes said that she believes that the person who ordered the hit on her son is not likely to be found, even if the person who fired the bullet is, on an episode of The Carol Ofori Podcast on Thursday 11 May.

Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, popularly known as AKA, was shot dead outside of Wish restaurant on Florida Road, Durban on 10 February, along with his friend Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane.

On episode of The Carol Ofori Podcast on Thursday 11 May, AKA’s mom Lynn Forbes sat down for an interview about losing her son. She revealed that while she wants to trust the justice system in South Africa, she feels like the “person who paid for the bullet” that killed AKA will not be found, even if the person, who fired the bullet is caught.

“I don’t want to say no I don’t think there will ever be arrests, I just don’t know if there will ever be arrests… I want to believe that the law will run it’s course. And the investigation will be handled in the best way possible. I don’t want to be negative and not believe that will happen, it’s just not the most important thing for me. Because nothing will bring him back,” she said.

“I believe that obviously this is an organized crime, this is a hit. We all saw the video… so I do believe somebody is behind this. There are two things here, somebody who pulled a trigger. And I don’t think it would help me if I knew who that person was,” she continued.

“I don’t think that person had any issues with Kiernan, I don’t believe the person who pulled the trigger hated my son, I don’t know if that person even knew my son. He was just doing a job that he was paid for. And the person who paid for the bullet… so to answer your question, I think there might be an arrest for the person who pulled the trigger. Whether we would find the person that paid for bullet, that one I’m not sure about, I don’t really believe that will ever happen,” she added.

In the interview, Lynn also described what the morning of AKA’s death looked like, before he headed for Durban for the gig he unfortunately never made it to.

The mom of two explained that Kairo has been staying with AKA for the week and the rapper asked her to wake him up before she takes the seven-year-old to school in the morning. So, she did and he told his only child that he loved her and he will miss her — as she was going to go back to her mom’s home.

AKA shares Kairo with South African DJ Ntombezinhle Jiyane, popularly known as DJ Zinhle.

“He told her, ‘Daddy’s gonna miss you. I can’t wait for you to be back and always remember that daddy loves you,” she said.
