AKA’s death was confirmed by KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Robert Netshiunda on Friday evening

“I can confirm that two men were killed and one of them is a well-known rapper. Police will not be releasing any names of the victims yet until a full investigation is completed” Said Netshiund as quoted by News24.
