Kiernan Forbes, 35, was killed with his close friend, Tebello 'Tibz' Motsoane, as they were walking towards their car.


AKA, a well-known rapper from South Africa, was fatally murdered outside a restaurant in the seaside city of Durban.


Along with Kiernan Forbes, Tebello "Tibz" Motsoane, a chef and businessman, was also executed.


The two are believed to have been killed while they were on their way to a nightclub for a gig as part of Forbes' birthday festivities.


The reason for the murder is being looked into.


The rapper and his buddy were heading to their vehicle when they were accosted by two armed individuals, who shot them in close proximity, according to police spokesman Colonel Robert Netshiunda, who spoke to the BBC.


The attackers then walked away from the spot.


The deaths may have been the result of a hit, but police have indicated they don't want to ruminate on that scenario.

Before going solo, Forbes started his musical career as a member of the rap group Entity. 


He won several awards for his music in South Africa during this time.


In addition, he received numerous nominations for both the MTV Europe Music Award and the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Award in the United States.


The 35-year-old made a social media post about his forthcoming project, Mass Country, which is due out later this month, hours before he passed away.


In a statement that was published on one of his social media accounts, Forbes' parents paid tribute to him.


According to them, Kiernan Jarryd Forbes was a father to his cherished daughter Kairo, as well as a son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend.


"He was known to many as AKA, Supa Mega, Bhova, and a host of other affectionate nicknames given to him by his devoted following." "Our kid received love and returned it."



AKA's previous manager, Motsoane, has been referred to as "a great gentleman" on social media.


Shootings are frequent in South Africa, which has one of the worst murder rates in the world.


According to the organization Gun Free South Africa, which strives to reduce gun violence in the nation, 30 people are shot to death there every day.
