Her next tweet urged people to “trust your gut” because it “never lies.” These cryptic messages seemed to be a response to something happening beneath the surface.
But Lynn Forbes didn’t stop there. She went on to state, “I will never forget who carried Kiernan through his darkest moments. The same way, I will never forget who turned their backs on him or preyed on him when he was at his most vulnerable.”
These words carried weight and implied that there may be more to the story than meets the eye. The intrigue surrounding her tweets left fans eagerly speculating about their meaning and their potential connection to the recent release of Cassper Nyovest’s song.
Cassper Nyovest’s Controversial Song
Cassper Nyovest’s track, “Candlelight,” which is believed to center around his feud with AKA, has stirred mixed emotions among fans, particularly those who were devoted to AKA.
Many of AKA’s supporters accused Cassper of “clout chasing,” suggesting that he was capitalizing on AKA’s name and legacy for his own gain. In the song, Cassper raps about the moment he learned of AKA’s tragic passing and the impact it had on him.
The lyrics go, “And when I heard it, I was just as hurt as the Megacy, Man, our battle was the highlight, I was confused when you came and gave me high fives, A very important feature in my life.”
Cassper also touches on his visit to AKA’s family after the rapper’s untimely death, expressing his initial fears and then the warmth and acceptance he received from AKA’s loved ones.
“The other day, I went to see your family, and I was scared cause I thought that they’d be mad at me. But they embraced me. Your momma is a lady, and your father might be cooler than you, maybe. Man, everybody misses you. Auntie Lynn, Uncle Tony, we are with you. And every time you feel down, we will lift you.”
While Cassper’s song may be seen as a heartfelt tribute to a fallen rival, it has undoubtedly sparked controversy, with some feeling that it was an attempt to reignite a feud and gain attention for his album release.
In the world of hip-hop, emotions run deep, and rivalries often transcend the music itself. As the mystery surrounding Lynn Forbes’s cryptic tweets continues to unravel, fans are left to wonder whether there’s more to this story than meets the eye and what the future holds for these two iconic figures in South African hip-hop.
