More than 10 months has gone by since the “execution-style” killings of award-winning rapper Kiernan “AKA” Jarryd Forbes and his close friend and celeb chef Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane shocked the nation.

Dj Zinhle shared on Instagram that Kairo has had a tough week leading up to her late father’s birthday and that she prays that Kairo heals and celebrates AKA but it’s just too soon as the year has been a roller coaster for the family.

Kairo Forbes, daughter of the late hip-hop star AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, and DJ Zinhle has been making excellent strides in the limelight.

When she’s not appearing on television commercials, the young vibrant 8-year-old is winning top awards, like being named Social Media Kid Influencer of the Year for 2023 at the Social Media Awards. Being the daughter of the one and only Supa Mega, there is no doubt that her dad would have been extremely proud.

It also helps when you have a support system in the form of grandmother Lynn Forbes and a deejay and businesswoman mom, DJ Zinhle who keeps you focused, yet grounded at the same time.

Meanwhile, young Kairo is not allowing anything to dim her light.

She recently joined forces with Rihanna and Puma for a sneaker collaboration. Taking to social media, the young star shared a video showing off her kicks.
