She recalls, “It didn’t register that it was fatal. What do you mean shot? I literally ran out of that venue. We got in the car and raced to Durban.”

Before the tragedy, AKA had expressed his desire to attend church. Nadia shares their failed attempt to reach the church, saying, “We tried to access all roads leading there, but they were closed. We stopped at a casino, where we prayed and read scripture. He had been a believer in God for a long time, but I feel that as the end neared, he was drawing even closer to God. I have no doubt about where he is now.”

While coping with immense grief, Nakai found solace in the support of her family and fans. She expresses gratitude for the overwhelming support she received during such a challenging time.

Additionally, she had to take measures to strengthen her security, emphasizing that she is still adjusting to life without AKA by her side.

Kiernan Forbes, widely known as AKA, tragically lost his life on February 10, 2023, outside Wish Restaurant in Durban.

About a week after his passing, he was laid to rest during a private burial ceremony at Westpark Cemetery in Johannesburg, leaving behind a void that continues to impact those who loved him dearly.
