According to reports, South African rap artist AKA was shot and killed on purpose in retaliation for the tragic death of his fiancee, Anele Tembe.
In April 2021, AKA’s fiancée, Anele Tembe, died after falling from her hotel room in a Cape Town hotel.
AKA, allegedly, has been on the radar of assailants who feel he played a role in the death of Anele.
Subsequently, he was prohibited from coming to Durban, Florida, where Anele hails from and where her father is almost the leader of the entire space.
AKA had been warned about a dragon on the outskirts of town, but he was unconvinced. When he was with friends, he even shared his current location.
He wanted to make a strong statement about the fact that he was not afraid of the threats on his life and thus decided to go ahead and celebrate his 35th birthday on enemies’ territory.
Anele’s rich father and family have not gotten over the death of their daughter Anele in 2021, and it is heavily alleged in South Africa that AKA was killed out of bitterness for not claiming responsibility for her fiancée’s passing.
Rapper AKA’s Death; How It Happened
South African rapper Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, known professionally as AKA, is dead.
The 35-year-old rapper was shot and killed after spending time with friends at a Florida club.
AKA was shot while standing on the pavement when gunfire broke out soon after 22:00, according to a first responder at the scene who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Robert Netshiunda, a spokesman for the KwaZulu-Natal police, confirmed to News24 that a “well-known rapper” was shot and killed on Friday night shortly after 22:00 in Florida Road, Durban.
“That two men were killed, one of them a well-known rapper is something I can confirm.” “The victims’ names won’t be made public by the police until a thorough investigation has been conducted,” said Netshiunda.
The renowned nightlife zone, where the incident took place, came to a complete halt when police officers stopped the route.
The incident had claimed the lives of two guys.
He claimed that both had been shot and that one of them had died despite efforts to revive him.
On Friday night, Forbes was scheduled to perform in the city, and a video posted on Instagram captured the fun times the rapper was having with friends at a table.
Police spokespeople are being sought after.
