Don Design Sparks Outrage After Pouring Hennessy Into AKA’s Grave During Burial Ceremony
South Africans have expressed anger after Don Design poured Hennessy into AKA’s grave during his burial on Saturday.
The private funeral ceremony was attended by the late rapper’s family, close friends, and associates.
Following his memorial service that was held on Friday, February 17, the late Sim Dope artist was transported to his Bryanston home.
The funeral procession, consisting entirely of BMW vehicles, then proceeded to his final resting place where he was interred on February 18th.
During the ceremony, when mourners began to throw dirt onto AKA’s coffin, Don Design, AKA’s friend, pulled out a bottle of Hennessy and poured it into the grave.
According to Beyond The Dash, the act of pouring a libation, which involves pouring a liquid as a tribute to the deceased, has been practiced for thousands of years.
Don Design’s decision to pour Hennessy during AKA’s burial has drawn criticism from South Africans, who suspect his involvement in the late rapper’s fatal shooting in Durban on February 10th.
Last week, both the Forbes family and AKA’s friend, Da L.E.S, spoke out in defense of Don Design, urging the public to refrain from pointing fingers and making baseless accusations.
