Moreso, they were rumours that Maphorisa was in the company of Amapiano legendary music producer, Kabza Da Small. However, close sources have since poured cold water on the claims sighting the two were not together when the incident transpired.

Though not common in the entertainment industry, assassinations on political leaders or politicians are rampant in South Africa with a top politician succumbing to an assassination every year.

However, top reggae artist, Lucky Dube was shot dead at his driveway in 2008 for inconspicuous reasons as the assailants said they thought he was a Nigerian that’s why they shot him.

South Africa has one of the highest murder rates in the world and is regarded as one of the most dangerous countries to live in.
