Fury upon AKA's death 

AKA, a native of South Africa's legislative capital of Cape Town, had just turned 35. "Our son was adored, and he provided love in return," his parents Tony and Lynn Forbes wrote on Twitter. Likewise, they desired to express their gratitude for all the support they have received in the wake of the unfortunate incident.His murder has stunned the country that, regrettably, is accustomed to such horrific crimes.

Kiernan Forbes was once nominated for the MTV Europe Music Awards and has received numerous nominations for the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards in the United States. He launched the "Prada" album earlier this year and was most recognised for the songs "Lemons (Lemonade)" and "Fela in Versace."

The nation's Department of Arts and Culture lamented the rapper's passing, sent its condolences to his family and friends, and said that the musician "flew the South African flag wherever he went."

The Democratic Alliance, the largest opposition party, on the other hand, claimed that AKA's loss "is felt by the many" followers it had. The Economic Freedom Fighters, another political organisation, voiced alarm that "crime in South Africa is out of control and the murder of people has become the norm."

The nation has one of the highest homicide rates in the world, according to "DW." For personal safety, many folks possess legally permitted firearms, but there are also numerous people who carry handguns illegally.
