South African rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and entrepreneur, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, known professionally as AKA dedicate his late fiancée, Anele “Nelli” Tembe on a new song “Tears Run Dry.”
The star, who returned to social media last week, has been sharing snippets of what he’s been getting up to, from playing Monopoly with family and friends to spending time in the studio.
This past weekend, the “Casino” hitmaker posted videos on his Instagram stories showing himself in the studio working on a song titled “Tears Run Dry”.
Still in a draft phase, the lyrics, sung and rapped by AKA, speak about nothing being able to replace a woman.
“First thing on my mind, when I wake up. Nothing else can replace her, wish I could break down and cry but all my tears run dry”, he sings.
AKA then raps, “I saw you in my dreams, baby that’s why I’m too terrified to go to sleep.”
This emotional song follows the backlash AKA received after he used Travis Scott’s Piss On Your Grave on his Instagram story last weekend which many thought was disrespectful as he had just lost his fiancée Nelli Tembe on 11 April when she plunged to her death from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town.
AKA took back control of his social media last week by going on a posting spree with pictures of himself and his new puppy named King Louie the 13th Forbes, nicknamed Mr Lou.
Mr Lou was set up with his own Instagram account which racked up more than 2 500 followers in just over a week.
AKA was born and raised in Cape Town, Western Cape, Forbes gained significance after releasing his single “Victory Lap” which was released from his debut album, Altar Ego.
