It's been just over a month since the rapper was fatally shot in Durban while set to perform at a gig.
Kiernan Forbes, popularly known as AKA, died on 10 February alongside his friend, Tebello Tibz Motsoane, on Florida Road in Durban.
His death shocked the nation, more especially his fans and the SuperMega following. Some are still reeling from the death and have found different ways to honour his memory.
Some have tattooed his name on their bodies as a way to show their admiration while others have been visiting his gravesite to bring new flowers and take pictures.
His fans have been left divided over the gravesite visits and photos as seem deem it creepy and distasteful while others think that it's an amazing way to preserve his legacy.
Although the fans who visit AKA’s grave leave flowers and take pictures, social media users believe his family should’ve chosen a private cemetery for him.

It's getting weird.— Danica Khumalo (@KhumaloDanica) March 14, 2023
Me personally as a parent this would console me ukuthi my kid left an impact and he was loved and I don’t have to worry about going to the grave everyday because I know people who love him go visit him too ..unless if the grave is being vandalised— #2ndbookloading (@Fikz_the_Cook) March 14, 2023
But ke asboni ngokfana.
I'm going to hurt a lot of people but Kiernan Forbes WAS NOT YOUR FRIEND. His service to you is on Spotify and all music platforms. You're overstepping boundaries now. You didn't see AKA going to Michael Jackson's grave and taking pictures.— Tshiamo Mogagabe (@THETshiamoMogg1) March 14, 2023
AKA was LOVED, his family is not selfish. They know and understand that his fans will visit his grave site to pay respect. There's absolutely nothing wrong with this, unless theres vandalism— Mantwa,Vladmir's wife, Mfazi ka Putin (@langalihl) March 15, 2023
Meanwhile one artist who died just months ago, Itumeleng "Vusi Ma R5" Moseou’s tombstone has been vandalised which sent social media into frenzy.
