One of the best rappers in Mzansi, Cassper Nyovest has finally dropped his much anticipated album, ‘Solomon’ and in one of the songs on the project, he pays tribute to late Kiernan “AKA” Forbes.
The album release has taken a bit longer than the rapper had planned, but he did apologise and he has made up for the delay because the social media streets are buzzing with excitement.
In his on-going mourning and love for his late rivalry, AKA, Cassper wrote a song called Candlelight, where he reminisces about his interactions with AKA. He also goes on to express his sorrow at the untimely death of the rapper who was also affectionately known as Supa Mega.
“This time is for the legacy. I don’t do it just to do it, this is therapy. And if this sh*t don’t exist then we develop it. And when I heard it I was just as hurt as the Megacy, uh. Man, our battle was the highlight. I was confused when you came and gave me high fives. A very important feature in my life. And you still shining, yeah, we see you in thе starlights, yeah,” raps Cassper.
In the track, Cassper also mentions his visit to the Forbes family to convey his condolences after AKA’s passing and also jokes that his father, Tony Forbes, may just be cooler than the late rapper.
The ‘Phumakim’ hitmaker mentions that he thought they were going to get into the boxing ring and handle it there. “I thought after that we would be OK and make music. Well, we do have music together that people have never heard.” He adds that they could’ve made a few records together.
