According to police sources in Durban, South African rapper Kiernan “AKA” Forbes was gunned down on Florida Road on Friday night.
An anonymous individual, who is thought 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 regarding the event.
Just before 10 o’clock, two unidentified vehicles are thought to have started shooting.
When an IOL team arrived to the location on Friday night, police had already blocked off the area.
Garrith Jamieson, an ALS Paramedics representative, reported that Florida Road had been blocked off following the shooting.
According to Jamieson, one of the dead was a “renowned rapper,” according to IOL.
As of the time this report was filed, the second victim had not been identified, but 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 celebrations, according to social media posts.
