Don Design was with AKA and Tebello on the day they were shot. After a video of the shooting was leaked online, social media detectives fingered him as the prime suspect behind the rapper’s assassination.

Since AKA sadly died, Don Design remained silent and did not post anything on social media despite being accused of playing a part in his friend’s murder.

On Monday, Don Design posted some photos on his Instagram account of himself with AKA. He wrote a heartfelt message to the late AKA along with the pictures.

Don Design said that he was devastated by the passing of his friend AKA.

“My heart is shattered, and the past couple of days have been nothing short of surreal. I am writing this with great difficulty, trying to put in words what you really meant to me. I would never have imagined that I would be putting together such a message.”

Don Design remembered the good times they had together with AKA. He said he wished he could thank AKA for having faith in him and showing him what true brotherhood means.

“I keep thinking about all the moments we shared and replaying our memories together. I wish I had one last chance to thank you for showing me what the true meaning of brotherhood is. I am indebted to you for believing in me, believing in my dreams and aspirational visions, especially in moments where I lacked such belief.”

He was charmed by all that AKA achieved in his life before he died. Don Design said he would do his best to be like AKA and do the same things.

“I’m in awe of all that you have accomplished in your lifetime. Your work ethic was unparalleled. You followed your path with honesty and integrity. I will try my level best to follow the path you have laid for us.”

Don Design comforted AKA’s family and told them to pray and hope for the best during this challenging time.

“To Uncle Tony, Aunty Lynne, Stef, Baby K, Nadia & Zinhle – with heartfelt sympathy, may the Lord heal your hearts and comfort your souls. Let prayer be your ray of hope. Prayer has the power to transform pain and to lift your spirits so that you may overcome this moment. I love you.”

He ended his letter by expressing his hope of meeting again with AKA.

“Kiernan, you have left this world without me, but someday, in my heart of hearts, I believe we will meet again and be together again.

Rest In Peace


Don Design.”
