AKA was shot alongside his long-time friend Tebello Motsoane, known as Tibz on Durban’s Florida road which is one of the city’s most vibrant spots.
The rapper and his associate were walking to their car when they were approached by two armed men who shot them at close range. The assailants fled the scene on foot.
Police have said they don’t want to speculate on whether the murders were a result of a hit but said that possibility cannot be ruled out.

AKA was known for songs like ‘Fela in Versace’ and ‘Lemons (Lemonade)’.
