Watch| Leaked Footage Captures AKA’s Tragic End
An unverified video purporting to show the moment rapper AKA was killed has been circulated, leaving the public heartbroken.
AKA, also known as Kiernan Forbes, suffered a fatal shooting on February 10th as he was departing a restaurant and heading to Yugo Durban for his birthday celebration.
His companion, Tebello Motsoane, was also reported to have been shot during the incident.
AKA’s passing has deeply affected the nation and his sudden death has garnered the attention of prominent international media organizations such as the New York Times, BBC, and The Guardian UK.
The leaked security camera video from the Wish On Florida restaurant has spread on Twitter, causing alarm among South Africans.
AKA had shared videos dining at the restaurant with friends, including former Dream Team member Lusasa “Saso” Ngcobo, DJ and producer Benny Maverick, and others. As they finished their meal, they headed outside to go their separate ways.
According to the CCTV footage, the rapper was seen saying goodbye to his friends, hugging one of them who was wearing a bucket hat for an extended period before moving on to greet another friend.
However, as AKA extended his arm to embrace the next friend, a gunman dressed in a white sweater and hat approached him and pointed a gun in his direction.
