South Africa is mourning the loss of one of its most beloved and talented musicians, Kiernan Forbes, also known as AKA. The rapper was killed in Durban last night along with his best friend and former manager, Tebello Motsoane, who was better known as Tibz.
AKA, Tibz and others had arrived in Durban on February 10th to celebrate AKA’s birthday and perform at a club when tragedy struck. Gunmen in two cars opened fire outside Wish Restaurant, killing both men and injuring another man who was reportedly AKA’s bodyguard.
AKA was only 35 years old and his death has sent shockwaves through the music community. Fans and fellow artists have taken to social media to express their grief and condolences, and his sudden passing has prompted a conversation about the growing problem of violence and crime in South Africa.
Throughout his career, AKA was known for his unique style and energetic performances. He collaborated with numerous other artists and released several hit songs, becoming a household name in South Africa and beyond.
In addition to his musical talents, he was also a role model for many young people, inspiring them to pursue their dreams and never give up.
AKA was a prominent figure in the South African music scene and was loved for his positive message and his commitment to giving back to the community. He was truly one of a kind and will be deeply missed by his fans, family, and friends.
Tibz was also a well-respected and talented individual in his own right. He managed AKA many years ago before deciding on a new career path and becoming a chef and starting a clothing brand. His death is just as devastating and a great loss to all who knew him.
As South Africa mourns the loss of these two talented individuals, their music will continue to live on and inspire generations to come. AKA will always be remembered as a dynamic and talented musician who left a lasting impact on the South African music scene, and Tibz will be remembered as a kind and dedicated friend who was always there for those in need.
This is a tragedy that has touched the hearts of many, and it serves as a stark reminder of the need for greater efforts to address the issues of violence and crime in South Africa.
It is our hope that justice will be served for AKA and Tibz, and that their legacy will continue to inspire and uplift those around them.
