“To all my fans, please send all your love to the Megacy [AKA's fans] and family. The nation is mourning & could use more love and less evil, he tweeted.

Speaking to TimesLIVE, ALS paramedic Garrith Jamieson explained that just after 10.15pm on Friday evening they responded to a shooting incident where two men sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
“On arrival, paramedics met total chaos and a scene where two men, believed to be in their late 30s, sustained multiple gunshot wounds. Paramedics assisted the men and unfortunately the first male showed no signs of life and was declared deceased at the scene.”
He said a second male was found in critical condition and died despite advanced life support intervention due to extensive injuries.
AKA was among South Africa's best rappers and produced and wrote many hit songs including Fela In Versace, Baddest and others since he broke into the industry over a decade ago.
