Kiernan Forbes, better known as rapper AKA, took to social media on Father’s Day to leave a tribute to his late fiancée, beginning the posts caption with: “Father’s Day was very difficult for me.”

AKA used the last picture he ever took of Anele before her passing to remember her on Father’s Day. In the Instagram post, he empathises with Anele’s father as a father, and speaks about the pain Anele’s father must be going through, because he has lost his child.

“Fathers Day was very difficult for me. Difficult because as much as I have lost you, as a father I cannot even imagine what it feels like to lose a child, especially someone as amazing as you. This is the last picture I took of you, and this is how I choose to remember you. I pray for your family every single day, as I do for mine. We miss you so much Anele. So so much. Everything reminds me of you,” said the father of one.

The rapper told Thembekile that he and Anele were having a rather difficult week, and arguments arouse at every chance. He further explained that they took some time to sit down and talk about their issues, but then things took a hectic turn and his fiancée threatened to kill herself.

When asked what issues the couple was discussing in their last heated sit down, AKA explained that he did not want to bring them up and talk about them, but described his relationship with Anele as “tumultuous”.

“It was like any other relationship in which there were problems and insecurities.”
