The popular rapper AKA was killed, according to South African police, who say the evidence they have so far leads them to believe it was an assassination. Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi, the commander of the KwaZulu-Natal police, claimed that the shooter had come up behind AKA and shot him at close range in the side of the head. Then, he continued, a second shooter opened fire to dissuade bystanders from reacting to the “hit.”
Tibz Motsoane, a famous chef and AKA’s buddy, was killed by one of these rounds. On Friday night, a shooting occurred in front of a restaurant in the seaside city of Durban. The father of AKA, whose real name was Kiernan Forbes, has requested people to refrain from making assumptions on social media. At the same time, authorities seek to piece together the complete story of what happened to him.
Although no arrests have been made yet, police claim to know the identities of the “two shooters,” and they are still verifying the identification of everyone present that evening in Durban. According to Gen. Mkhwanazi, who spoke to the Newzroom Africa TV channel, investigators are currently examining the suspects’ data to piece together their conversations and movements leading up to the deaths.
