South African police say evidence gathered to date leads them to believe the killing of the rapper AKA on Saturday was an assassination.
The police commissioner of KwaZulu-Natal province, Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi, said the gunman had approached Kiernan Forbes from behind and shot him at close range in the side of the head.
A second gunman then started firing to deter onlookers from getting involved.
One of these rounds killed the friend with AKA, Tibz Motsoane.
Local News24 has shared a screengrab of the moment AKA was allegedly shot by a gunman.
