Rapper Kiernan 'AKA' Forbes has issued an apology to Thando Thabethe following a recent interview where things got heated after the radio host mentioned Anele Tembe.

During a live interview, things took a left turn when Thando asked AKA questions regarding his late fiancée, who died earlier this year.

Taking to Instagram with a picture of them, the rapper apologised for his behaviour on air and said that she has always been in his corner.

"I’ve been seeing lot of whoo ha [sic] on social media about our interview on Friday. For the record, I just wanna say that Thando Thabethe has always been in my corner from the start, even through everything that has happened this year," wrote the rapper on Instagram. 

He also expressed his love for the "947 family" who he says has always been there for him.

His Instagram post came after social media users freaked out about his response to Thabethe after she asked him about "the elephant in the room", his fianceé Nellie Tembe’s tragic death which occurred earlier this year. 

"We have to speak about the elephant in the room, obviously," began Thando. 

"What’s the elephant in the room?" interjected AKA before Thando continued, mentioning his interview with Thembekile Mrototo. 

"A lot of people felt like you said nothing in the interview. Do you feel a need to say anything about the incident that happened?"

"Pfft! So? You want to call it an incident? This is my life," began the rapper, before adding, "to you, it’s an incident…It’s none of your business. It’s nobody’s business but my own."

"It’s unfortunate that I felt triggered by the way she asked her questions and I could have handled it better, after all she’s just doing her job and all that, he added."

He then apologised to the radio station and concluded his post by writing, "sh*t happens."
