South African law enforcement officials have ruled the killing of Mzansi rapper, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, better known as AKA a deliberate assassination.
AKA was shot down in the head at close proximity while hugging and sharing pleasantries with his companions in front of a Durban restaurant.
After careful analysis of CCTV footage and evidence available to police officials, Lt-Gen Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi concluded that the killing was a premeditated assassination.
“He did not shoot the friend that was with him, but he shot AKA twice, and he ran away. The other criminal engaged and fired a couple of shots, and one of his bullets managed to strike Motsoane, and he died,” he explained.
Before his death, AKA had revealed on Twitter that he dreams of becoming a judge on South Africa’s Idols. However, a fan advised that he rather kickstart his own show to help elevate local talents in the country.
