AKA was gunned down on Florida road in February alongside his friend, Tebello Motsoane, an entrepreneur and celebrity chef.
The rapper and celebrity chef were killed in Durban on the 10th of February 2023 outside a popular restaurant called Wish, which recently closed down due to the incident that had occurred, hence the permanent closure of the establishment.
