It is a sad coincidence that AKA’s death follows a similar tragedy that occurred with American rapper PnB Rock in September 2022. Like AKA, PnB Rock was also shot and killed after sharing his location on social media.

According to IOL, two unidentified vehicles were reportedly involved in the shooting which occurred shortly before 10pm. One of the fatalities at the scene was believed to be the rapper’s bodyguard, who was found in a critical state and later succumbed to extensive injuries despite attempts to revive him through life support.

The late rapper AKA’s recent Instagram activity suggests that the evening of February 10 was intended to be a birthday celebration, despite his actual birthday being on January 28. His manager, Thato T Effect, has confirmed the reports via WhatsApp status and expressed regret about the show that took place.
