AKA’s father opens up about his divorce from Lynn Forbes

The father of late popular Mzansi rapper AKA, Tony Forbes opened up about his divorce from the rapper’s mom Lynn Forbes, on an episode of Within The Hazel podcast on Monday 5 February. He admitted that he was not the best husband.



Tony explained that Lynn used to boost his confidence and inspire him.

“I was comfortable living in Greenside, it was a nice neighbourhood. Lynn was always someone that, I guess in a way inspired me and gave me confidence to do things. So, I started my own business and Lynn was the one that one Sunday said we moving to Houghton,” he said.

However, he said they grew apart. The father of three also explained that Lynn’s love language was quality time and he was not spending time with her.

“With Lynn and I, after 20 years of marriage, I wasn’t the best husband, let me just put this out there first. I think her (Lynn) primary love language was spending time. In our relationship I think Lynn valued quality time. At the time I was not spending quality time with her… I was doing me,” he continued.

“We kind of grew apart… I think I remarried after like four and a half years, I remarried in 2010. And for my sins, I have a nine-year-old daughter. So, I have a 35-year-old, a 30-year-old, and a nine-year-old. And an eight-year-old granddaughter,” he added.
