A memorial service to mark the life of AKA, who was killed outside a Durban restaurant a week ago, will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre on Friday night. He will be buried at a private funeral on Saturday.
Moses Tembe who is the father of AKA’s late girlfriend Anelt Tembe says he cannot reveal whether he will attend the memorial service or private funeral of slain hip-hop star Kiernan “AKA” Forbes because of “security reasons”.
On Thursday Tembe said he was awaiting an invitation to the funeral.
This follows a statement he released expressing concern about social media users pointing fingers at him.
He said the posts linking him to AKA’s death were “cruel and libellous”. He said he had not been approached by the police.
“Great pity the media continues to place my daughter’s departure at the centre of Kiernan’s death,” he 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 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.
