Watch: South African Rapper AKA Shot Dead In Durban

It’s just days to Valentine’s Day, but unfortunately South African rapper AKA would never get to share the embrace of his girlfriend Nadia Nadia. The songster was shot dead in Durband hours ago. He was aged 35 years.

His parents Tony and Lynn Forbes confirmed his death in a statement while also giving some insight into what happened on the day he was shot dead in a drive-by shooting.

According to the statement released by the couple, he was shot on Florida Road, Durban, while he was standing outside Wish restaurant. Also, as you can see below, he had shared his location at the time on his Instagram Story.

Social media users who saw the location he shared following the shooting were of the view he should never have shared that – or should at least have shared the location after he left. They feel he exposed himself by giving away his location.

His girlfriend Nadia Nakai has not posted about his passing at the time of writing. Sources say she is devastated and just speechless about it all, especially as she was even thinking of having babies for him.

28 January 1988, AKA, whose birth name is Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, rose to fame soon after thanks to music. He is the second notable South African musician shot dead mysteriously in five months. The other is DJ Sumbody.
