South African rapper AKA laid to rest
There was no live stream or television broadcast of the rapper Kiernan Forbes widely known as AKA’s burial.
This came as the late rapper’s family requested privacy to bid him farewell.
AKA was shot and killed outside a restaurant on Florida Road in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, last Friday.
The mortal remains of rapper AKA is being put to rest at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg, today, February 17, 2023.
Even though there have been videos online of the procession to the cemetery, the private funeral was not aired.
Their families have asked for the ceremonies not to be broadcast. A public memorial service was held on Thursday in honor of the late rapper and friend ‘Tibz’ while industry colleagues and friends shared their memories of ‘AKA’ yesterday.
He was killed alongside his close friend, chef, and entrepreneur Tebello Tibz Motsoane, leaving his bodyguard injured.
An investigation is currently ongoing to uncover the perpetrators.
