Bio


AKA (real name Kiernan Forbes) was a South African hip hop recording artist, voice over artist, event MC, music producer and television presenter who first found fame with the group Entity before he went on to a solo career and as a music producer with IV League.

His solo career saw him soar to great heights and reach the top of the local hip hop scene in a very short space of time.

His numerous awards included GQ Best Dressed Award 2011, Best Music Video Award 2011 for Channel O, two SAMA Awards in 2011, one Metro FM Award and more.

He joined the Vuzu show The Verge in February 2012 and in November 2012 became the host of Top Entertainment, the first locally-produced show to be commissioned by TopTV.

AKA was shot and killed on Friday 10 February, 2023, by unknown hitmen. He was 35.
