Wow, there is no denying that 2021 was quite a hectic year for Kiernan Forbes better known as AKA. One could even go as far as saying that last year, the rapper lived through his worst nightmare.
AKA started off the year madly in love with his fiance Nellie Thembe and even though their relationship was highly ridiculed because of their age difference (AKA 33, Nelly 22) the two were inseparable and completely in love - or so we thought.
The two supposedly began their whirlwind relationship in January 2020 and just over a year later, in Feb 2021, the rapper shocked fans when he posted about their engagement on his social media. However, shortly after paying lobola, the rapper unexpectedly lost his betrothed in a tragic accident that left many with more questions than answers.
Before we delve into the details of the short lived love story, here’s a quick look at the rapper’s relationship past.
Baby mama - DJ Zinhle
The DJ and rapper met in 2014 and by 2015 were welcoming their baby girl, Kairo, into the world. The span of their relationship lasted jut about three years because the two broke up shortly after their daughter was born because the rapper cheated on his baby mama. Time seemed to heal the wounds because in 2018 the pair decided to give love another shot and got back together. This proved futile because in 2019 they broke up and this time was for good. Through the years the two have managed to maintain a cordial co-parenting relationship.
Remember when we mentioned that the rapper broke up with his baby mama cause he cheated? Well he cheated on her with none other than the queen herself! Queen B and AKA tried their best to keep their relationship out of the limelight - probably because of the way it started, but they failed miserably. AKA and Queen B took over social media with their ‘couple goal’ aesthetically pleasing pictures and although many tried, it was really hard to hate on the couple. Their relationship ended as fast as it began after our girl Bonang allegedly cheated on the rapper.
IG Baddie - Nicole Nyaba
Despite the fact that AKA and Nicole never publicly announced their relationship, the two were associated for a long time. It seemed like Nicole was next in line to be AKA's official lover, but when that didn't happen, the IG baddie packed her bags and left. However, not without a few choice words for the rapper!
Although Anele and AKA’s relationship was short lived, their love story was strong and their bond was unbreakable. Following the demise of his betrothed, the rapper slipped into severe depression and was even on medication. However, rumors have recently surfaced that the rapper has found again, this time in the arms of fellow rapper Nadia Nakia. He even gifted her with a Rolex for Christmas. Neither of them have confirmed or denied these rumors so hopefully 2022 is the year they become public.
