AKA’s Parents Disapprove of Tell-All Book Amidst Family Drama


As the release date looms for Melinda Ferguson’s highly anticipated book, “When Love Kills: The Tragic Tale of AKA and Anele,” tensions rise as the late rapper’s parents distance themselves, labelling the book as “distasteful and opportunistic.”

According to , excerpts from the book, published earlier this week, delve into the tumultuous relationship between AKA and Anele, shedding light on their struggles and conflicts. From allegations of Anele’s unease towards DJ Zinhle, the mother of AKA’s daughter, to Anele’s father’s admission of regret for not intervening in the alleged abuse, the book unveils a narrative fraught with tragedy and heartbreak.

Despite Ferguson’s claims of thorough research and obtaining permission from Anele’s father, the Forbes family, through AKA’s parents Tony and Lynn Forbes, have vehemently opposed any association with the book, citing a lack of endorsement and asserting their disapproval of its publication.

According to the publication, in response, Ferguson defends her decision to explore the couple’s story, citing her own struggles with addiction and toxic relationships as a driving force behind her quest for truth. She acknowledges the absence of Anele’s voice in the narrative, emphasising the need to give her a platform, even in death, to be heard and understood.

With emotions running high and conflicting perspectives emerging, the release of “When Love Kills” promises to ignite further debate and scrutiny surrounding the tragic love story that captivated the nation. As readers await its unveiling, the controversy surrounding the book underscores the complexities of love, loss, and the pursuit of understanding amidst adversity.
