The killing of the revered South African rap star, AKA, while he was outside a restaurant in Durban on February 18th has triggered numerous accusations about the identity of the perpetrator(s) responsible for his tragic passing. But let’s not jump to conclusions just yet, as the South African Police Service (SAPS) is diligently working to unravel the case. Until their official report surfaces, it’s best to take these allegations with a grain of salt.
Twitter is abuzz with startling claims from a well-known user, Lebohang Bokako, who some believe may have been AKA’s mistress. According to Bokako, AKA had a foreboding sense of his impending demise. She further alleges that the cover art for his forthcoming album, “Mass Country,” is riddled with insinuations of a premeditated attack.

Bokako highlights a series of puzzling clues that seem to support her theory: the album cover allegedly concealed the date of the shooting (10/C); the illustration of a bullet hole on AKA’s forehead corresponds with the exact spot where he was fatally hit; the mountainous terrain depicted in the artwork matches KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), the province where the shooting took place; and the inclusion of a serpent, which Bokako believes symbolizes the disloyalty of AKA’s closest confidants.
Adding to the enigma, Bokako asserts that the number “94” on the cover alludes to AKA’s time of death, which was purportedly at 9:40 p.m.
Although Bokako’s assertions have grabbed headlines, it’s crucial to remember that they are unverified and subject to investigation by the SAPS.
Nevertheless, the allegations have stirred curiosity and apprehension among AKA’s devoted fanbase, who are desperate for answers regarding his untimely demise.
AKA, born Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, was a towering figure in South Africa’s hip-hop scene, garnering critical acclaim and commercial success since the mid-2000s. With a series of chart-topping bangers under his belt, he had established himself as one of the country’s most influential and celebrated artists.
The recent killing of AKA adds to a series of notorious homicides in South Africa, a country with one of the highest murder rates globally. For several years, the nation has struggled with a surge of violent crimes, encompassing murder, robbery, and assault.
Despite the attempts made by the government and law enforcement organizations to tackle the issue, violent crime remains a significant source of worry for a large portion of South Africa’s population.
