In a heartfelt revelation, Lynn Forbes, also known as Glammy, recently shared the last words spoken by her son, AKA, to his beloved daughter, Kairo Forbes. Lynn opened up about this emotional moment during her appearance on The Carol Ofori Podcast, shedding light on the profound connection between father and daughter.
Lynn fondly recalled the precious moments before AKA departed for Durban. He lovingly expressed to Kairo, “Daddy’s gonna miss you. I can’t wait for you to be back and always remember that daddy loves you.” These words capture the deep bond and affection between AKA and his little girl.
Kairo, representing her father at the prestigious 17th edition of the Metro FM Awards in Nelspruit’s Mbombela Stadium, gracefully accepted four awards on his behalf. These accolades included Best Male Artist, Best Collaboration for the chart-topping hit “Lemons (Lemonade)” featuring rapper Nasty C, Best Hip Hop Artist, and Artist of the Year. Lynn and Tony Forbes, AKA’s parents, expressed immense pride in their son’s achievements and extended their gratitude to everyone who has supported him throughout his career.
The joyous occasion was further celebrated by Murdah, who expressed his heartfelt congratulations to AKA and The Megacy. He acknowledged the shining brilliance of Kairo, stating, “@kairo.forbes, I am very proud of you for shining so bright. @lynnforbesza and @tonydforbes, well done to you and the team on all the hard work nobody gets to see. The Megacy will live forever. #inMegawetrusttrusttrust,” he shared on Instagram.
However, the happiness surrounding these accomplishments was soon overshadowed by tragedy. Lynn courageously recounted the difficult moment when she had to break the devastating news to Kairo about AKA’s passing. With great sadness, she revealed, “I told her that we have some really sad news… Your dad died.” Kairo’s heartbreak was palpable as tears flowed uncontrollably.
Confused and hoping for a different outcome, Kairo asked, “But, he’s coming back, right? He will be okay.” Lynn had to deliver the painful truth, responding, “No, he’s not coming back, and we have to bury him.” It was an agonizing conversation that no child should ever have to experience.
Zinhle, Kairo’s mother, made a solemn promise to care for their daughter in AKA’s absence. Expressing her profound sorrow, she shared, “Kiernan, I am so sorry that you have been robbed of your time with your daughter… I would give anything for Kairo to have more time with you, Kiernan. The thought of her asking questions breaks me. What do I do when she misses and needs you?” Zinhle pleaded for AKA to watch over Kairo and for divine guidance as she and Bongani @murdahbongz navigate the journey of raising their daughter together.
Reflecting on the past, Zinhle cherished the last encounter with AKA, where he expressed his pride in their co-parenting journey. Despite the challenges faced, their focus was always on their daughter and what was best for her. Their dedication to Kairo’s well-being stood as a testament to their unwavering love.
The revelation of AKA’s last words to Kairo resonates deeply with fans, serving as a reminder of the precious bond between a father and his child. The love and memories they shared will forever hold a special place in Kairo’s heart.
