In addition to AKA, his bodyguard was also injured in the shooting, and another close friend of the rapper was killed.

AKA was born and raised in Cape Town and rose to prominence with the release of his single “Victory Lap,” which was featured on his debut album Altar Ego in 2011.

He gained a following in Nigeria as well, thanks to his hit single “Fela in Versace.”

The rapper has also worked with Grammy award-winning Nigerian artiste, Burna Boy.

AKA had sparked controversy after he supported xenophobic attacks on Nigerians based in South Africa.

Based on the comment, Burna Boy severed ties with the rapper and vowed never to visit South Africa again.
