The family said on AKA’s social media accounts that they want to proceed with the release of the late rapper’s impending ‘Mass Country’ album to honor his memory.

“The family continues to celebrate the life of their son. To honour his legacy, they are choosing to continue with the release of the ‘Mass Country’ album on the 24th February 2023 as planned,” the press release reads.

Nivo, the album’s co-executive producer, was mentioned in the press release as stating, “The team was extremely blessed to work so closely on the project with Kiernan. We spent a lot of time mapping out this roll-out and creating all the content we have under his direction.

Kiernan worked tremendously hard on this project. He put his heart and soul into it, and we were blessed that he got the opportunity to map out this entire roll-out and approve all the elements, so what will be coming out will be as per his direction and his vision…”

Sean Watson, Managing Director of Sony Music Entertainment Africa, stated:  “Our hearts are broken. We’ve lost not only an icon but someone who was dear to us as a member of the Sony Music Family…”

Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, also known as AKA and Supamega, was murdered on his birthday, February 10, 2023, in Florida Durban, South Africa. In a premeditated attack, the rapper was fatally shot in the head.

Tributes have poured in from all across Africa in memory of the late rapper, whose career spanned over a decade and had a significant effect on the South African Hip Hop industry. His forthcoming record, ‘Mass Country,’ will be released on February 24th, 2023, and will carry on his legacy.
