Actress, businesswoman and presenter Pearl Thusi has finally gained the strength to listen to AKA’s music after his untimely passing in February.
And the Fistful of Vengeance star believes the slain rapper was trolling her in his song Company — which is found on the rapper’s posthumous album t**led Mass Country.
HERE’S WHY PEARL THUSI THINKS AKA WAS TROLLING HER
In an Instagram post this week, Pearl shared some of the lyrics of the hit song. In the song, AKA says “Diamonds ain’t gqimm’ shelele”. The actress said she believes that that specific line was directed to her.
This is because the catchphrase “gqimm’ shelele” is synonymous with her ex-boyfriend and sportscaster Robert Marawa. He is popular for signing off with it at the end of his radio and TV broadcasts. Gqimm’ Shelele is also the t**le of the 947 presenter’s book which he released last year.
In 2016, Pearl and Robert Marawa publicly dated. Their first public appearance as a couple was at the annual Vodacom Durban July in of the same year. They, however, broke up in 2017.
‘I MISS YOU, BRO’
In her IG post about AKA, Pearl also expressed how much she misses him and how difficult it has been for her to listen to his music.
“Well done Kiernan. I’m sure you couldn’t wait to perform this one. I’m kinda mad we never go to see that properly with whatever your bigger vision was…
“I miss you, bro. I even miss arguing with you.
Sorry I took long to really listen properly. It was still too painful. You should be proud of this one… wherever you are,” she wrote.
The 35-year-old musician was gunned down outside Wish on Florida in Durban on 10 February. So far, no arrests have been made.
In a recent interview with You Magazine, AKA’s parents — Lynn and Tony Forbes — said that the feedback from the police has not changed.
“The feedback is that suspects are being interviewed and they’re following up on all the leads and witness statements. They haven’t given us new feedback yet,” AKA’s father was quoted as saying.
