Kiernan “AKA” Forbes has hinted at dropping an album touching on his experience since his late fiancée Anele “Nellie” Tembe’s death.
Speaking on YFM’s breakfast show Y Mornings hosted by DJ Ankletap on Thursday, AKA said people expected his new music to touch on what he went through the last couple of months.
His recent EP You’re Welcome, a collaboration with rapper Costa Titch, has received good reviews from fans. It is up-tempo and perfect for the warmer weather.
“I can’t come out all sad and heavy, let me get the jiggy stuff out the way… Obviously later in the year, my project is still going to come out and then I will deal with all that heavy stuff,” he said.
When asked by Ankletap if his project had a title yet, AKA said it would likely be called Tears Run Dry.
“Thinking of releasing it during Anele’s birthday, 12 October,” he added.
He may have hinted the drop of a solo project soon.😤 pic.twitter.com/7OrYbqlY69
