The death of Rapper AKA last night shocked many of his fans.
Journalist Hopewell Chin’ono wrote :
I am saddened to hear that South African rap star @akaworldwide has been shot dead this evening in Durban, South Africa.
AKA spoke out against the repression in Zimbabwe after the arrest of Jacob Ngarivhume & myself in July 2020 & he popularized the #ZimLivesMatter hashtag.
His fiance Nadia Nakai has not responded to the news but those close to her confirm she is in a bad situation and still in disbelief
Popular multi-award-winning South African music rapper Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, widely known as AKA, was shot dead in Durban’s famous Florida Road in Morningside which has a chain of bars and restaurants.
