Yesterday, ZAlebs reported that rapper Kiernan Forbes, famously known as AKA, served Nota Baloyi, who is married to Afro Soul singer and guitarist Berita, with a cease and desist letter. The self-proclaimed millionaire said he is not scared of no lawyers and if AKA really means business he should interdict him through the court of law.

Taking to Instagram Live, Nota said, “When I was watching the Thembekile talk show, I had a moral dilemma. You guys should all know how much I love and care for Kiernan, AKA. Everybody’s always like no Nota you’re always on Kiernan’s side he did this, he did this. I support him, I’ve supported him for a long time. Me supporting him does not mean that I don’t want what’s best for him. I want him to prosper in life. I don’t agree with some of the ways he’s been going about things. I don’t. I don’t agree with it, and it’s in the public right now.“

He even informed AKA that he is a public figure so people are bound to develop an opinion about him.

“You can’t silence me with lawyers letters and stuff like that. You cannot! You cannot silence me with lawyers letters. You cannot stop me from speculating, commenting. Like what is that? Just let it go because you are living a public life now. You signed up for this. So now that you’ve signed up for it you need to live with it. Don’t be sending lawyers letters, cease and desist, whatever retraction whatever No! Not with me bro! I’m not scared of lawyers letters!“

Through his lawyers Mabuza Attorneys, AKA said Nota's tweets about him were defamatory as he accused him of abusing drugs which then lead to his abusive nature towards Nellie Tembe.

"The man needs fixing because he is in denial about a lot of things but I would have preferred him to own his bullying of his wife, his substance abuse and his rushing into a relationship soon after his previous break ups. I am praying for him to find God and rely only on him!" Nota's tweet reads.

He has since deleted his Twitter account but Forbes' lawyers still have records.

"The aforementioned allegations are false and defamatory in nature...mean, alternatively imply alternatively contain various innuendos," part of the letter reads.

"The aim and purpose of these statements and allegations is to slander, humiliate defame and tarnish the good name and reputation of our client. You were opportunistic and displayed true parasitic behaviour by stirring controversy and using our clients personal tragedy against him for your own personal and selfish gains," the letter continues.

Nota is supposed to retract his statements and issue out a public apology to AKA. He is also instructed to not speak about AKA in future. In addition to that the civil claim against Nota demands that he pays AKA R500K for damages.
