Cape Town – South African rapper Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes has revealed his intentions to release an album about his experiences since the death of his late fiancée Anele Tembe.
During an interview with DJ Ankletap on his YFM radio show, Y Mornings, AKA said that his new music will touch on what he went through the last couple of months.
Anele died earlier this year after she fell from the tenth floor of a hotel in Cape Town.

The “Versace” hitmaker recently collaborated with rapper Costa Titch on an EP titled You’re Welcome.
“The first music that people wanted to hear from was after I went through all my stuff this year… and people probably wanted to hear me talk about all that stuff but I felt like yoh, summer is back…
“I can’t come out all sad and heavy, let me get the jiggy stuff out the way… Obviously later in the year, my project is still going to come out and then I will deal with all that heavy stuff,” AKA said.
According to The Citizen, the rapper intends to release this new project on Anele’s birthday, which is on October 12.
The album would likely be titled Tears Run Dry, the report said.
