A month after the untimely death of AKA, the police have given an update on the ongoing murder investigations. No doubt, family and friends of the celebrated hip-hop sensation, AKA, could be close to knowing the killers or those who plotted to murder the Hip Hop star after the police gave another update regarding the ongoing investigations.

Speaking to the public broadcaster SABC, KwaZulu-Natal Police Commissioner Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi gave an update on pending murder investigations, including one of AKA.


In a media briefing the police confirmed progress in various murder cases in the province, including that of the rapper Kiernan Forbes. The commissioner revealed they have been connecting the dots thanks to the available CCTV footages. This is one of the several updates on AKA’s murder case by the police.

KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi says investigation into the murder of rapper Kiernan Forbes, known as AKA are yielding positive results. AKA was shot dead outside a popular night spot on Durban’s Florida Road a month ago.

“We want to encourage communities to come on board and share information. The investigation of Mr Forbes who was murdered last month; majority of the work we did thus far it is because of the help from the community. The different cameras in that vicinity are not installed by the state, but it is those cameras that are helping us to analyse and identify some of those people who might have been involved and it helps us to make linkages,” he says.

A few weeks ago, Police Minister Bheki Cele also informed that the police were collecting cellphone data for investigations. AKA and his former manager Tibello ‘Tibz’ Mostoane were shot dead outside a restaurant on Durban’s Florida Road.

His death has since implicated several people in the mix. However, in the wake of his death, the police asserted that his death was a targeted killing. With the police closing in on the case, no arrest has been made yet.

In the wake of his untimely death, Mzansi was hit with another celebrity death. Costa Titch, who happens to be AKA’s industry friend, collapsed and died whilst performing at Ultra South Africa concert in the Johannesburg suburb of Nasrec. The authorities have since launched an investigation to determine the cause of his unexpected death.
