AKA real name Kiernan Forbes has come out to claim that he has built single-handedly the South African celebrity alcohol brand association/ambassadorship!apper
“Any SA celebrity with an alcohol product, you’re welcome. I single-handedly built this industry, and that’s facts,” said Kiernan Forbes.
Kiernan Forbes said that he’s unmatched and he’s been putting sh*t on the shelves in major retailers for nearly 10-years now.
“When it comes to product. I am unmatched. I have been putting shit on shelves in major retailers for nearly 10 years now. Don’t play with me. I am the KING of the product,” said Kiernan Forbes.
Throwing shade on those who never “thanked” him, Kiernan Forbes said: “Shame on you, none of yall ever even thanked me … not even once.”
In a build-up to the long weekend, Kiernan Forbes has encouraged folks to drink responsibly.
“Please sure you stock up safely and responsibly this weekend Cruz Vodka,” wrote Kiernan Forbes.
Kiernan Forbes also did a collaboration with Reebok, which resulted in his awesome SneAKA sneakers that were sold at selected retailers across South Africa.
Seemingly, Kiernan Forbes’ deal with Reebok went sour.
“Can you believe they didn’t pay me a single cent for this? Not one cent”, those were the words of Kiernan Forbes responding (May 2020) to a fan who said to him that Reebok SNEAKA was special because it represents one of their own.
And Kiernan Forbes confirmed that there was no contract for the SNEAKA brand Reebok. “Only my contract as an ambassador. A contract regarding the #SNEAKA doesn’t even exist.”
Kiernan said that “sh!t happens” and in Reebok’s mind they thought they were doing him a favor.
“Well, the same thing that happens most of the time … you bring a brand (Reebok) back from the dead and someone in some office in Cape Town can’t stand to pay you more than they make in a year,” wrote Kiernan.
“I now declare THE LONG WEEKEND🍸 OFFICIALLY OPEN 👍🧭🎉 Reward yourself this weekend with the one, the ONLY, the ORIGINAL 😉 … The truly epic. @cruzvodka WATERMELON 🍉 #EveryBodyLovesWatermelon. Please enjoy responsibly. Stay Safe, STAY SEXY. 💜😈,” said Kiernan.
