We're only halfway through 2021 and Kiernan Forbes has been an almost constant fixture in headlines, the Twitterverse and beyond.

The rapper has dealt with a lot in only a few months including the death of his fiancee, Anele, and allegations of drug use and abuse.

When Anele's death was announced, AKA had released a statement in which he mentioned that he will not be active on any social media platforms for a while and gave control to his management team.

Then things started to get worse even quicker and soon AKA had to make his return and address many of the things that have been said about him and his relationship.

He even had a tell-all interview.

But while he might be working on himself, seeking therapy and getting the help he needs, he did experience a major loss and has to work through that as well.

This could be a new era of AKA music and might even indicate a brand new sound that fans are not used to hearing from the rapper.

Either way, it's very clear that he is putting all of his emotions into these songs.
