According to police sources in Durban, South African rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes was fatally shot on Florida Road on Friday night.
An anonymous individual, who is said to be a close friend of AKA, was also shot dead in the drive-by shooting, along with another person who was thought to be AKA’s bodyguard, according to an IOL report.
AKA was killed in a drive-by shooting while standing outside the Wish Restaurant, according to IOL. Provincial police have not yet made an official statement on the event.
It’s thought that soon before 10 o’clock, two unidentified automobiles started shooting.
When an IOL crew arrived to the location on Friday night, police had already blocked off the area. According to Jamieson, one of the dead was a “renowned rapper,” according to IOL.
As of the time this article was filed, the second victim had not been identified, although it is believed that he was an intimate friend of AKA. AKA was reportedly scheduled to perform at the Durban nightclub YUGO as part of his birthday festivities, according to social media posts.
Hours before he was shot, AKA and his companions published a series of images of their activities on Instagram, from the barbershop to the restaurant where he was allegedly attacked, according to a tweet from @theNETng. His passing has prompted discussions about attack on rappers after sharing their live location online.”
