Rapper Kiernon “AKA” Forbes was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting on Florida Road on Friday night, according to Durban police sources.
However, he was ambushed by unidentified gunmen who fatally shot him multiple times outside a restaurant on Florida Road in what looks to be a hit.
Another person, who is thought to be AKA’s bodyguard, was also injured. A third unnamed person, who is thought to be AKA’s close friend, was shot and killed.
AKA was reportedly killed in a drive-by gunshot while he was standing outside the Wish Restaurant.
At this point, it is unknown who the second victim of gunfire was, however it is believed that he was an intimate friend of AKA.
AKA was scheduled to perform at the Durban nightclub YUGO as part of his birthday celebrations, according to social media posts. Since then, the event has been postponed.
