Kiernan Jared Forbes whose stage name is AKA has been confirmed to be assassinated.
On Friday, 10th of February the rapper was shot dead on Florida road, Durban; his friend, Tibz who was with the rapper was also shot and killed.
The CCTV footage of how Kiernan was killed was shared on social media and it birthed lots of reviews from internet detectives.
Lt-Gen Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi in a recent interview confirmed that the rapper was assassinated; he also analyzed the killing and how it affected Tibz
“He did not shoot the friend that was with him, but he shot AKA twice, and he ran away. The other criminal engaged and fired a couple of shots, and one of his bullets managed to strike Motsoane, and he died,” he wrote.
A few days ago, the late Anele Nelli Tembe’s father, Moses Tembe slammed rumors that his family killed the rapper.
“We’ve never judged Kiernan. We demonstrated our love for him to his very last day. We are saddened by this sad eventuality as it robs of us an opportunity we have been waiting for so patiently to vindicate our daughter in court or in an inquest.”
I would like to visit their family and convey my condolence in person. As a parent, I feel deep pain for Kiernan’s parents (Tony and Lynn Forbes,) his daughter Kairo and the family at large.”
