While fans have continuously shown support and have been praying for the rapper’s family — including his seven-year-old princess he shares with DJ Zinhle — her post on Sunday, 26 February, on Instagram prompted a great response.

In a video montage of Kairo and her father, the little girl speaks about how much she loves him. The clip was shared by the musician’s mother, Lynn “Glammy” Forbes, who runs the account.

“I love you, and…he was a good dad, and I love him,” Kairo can be heard saying in the audio.

@tink_tbw replied: “This just brought up all my childhood hurt from losing my father at age 10. I’m so angry at the killers who took away her father and robbed her of a critical source of love and teaching for her!! I’m so angry you robbed her of her dad’s love and guidance. Kairo – Im praying for you, my girl. May God hold and guide you and those left in your life to raise you. Sending you so much love!”

While @gugu77wc said: “She’s still too young to really understand, what happened. It will hit her hard as she grows older. I pray she’ll be strong enough to deal with this reality.”
