DJ Zinhle‘s husband, DJ and music producer Bongani Mohosana, will not be attending the memorial and funeral service of the late AKA, who shares a child with Zinhle.
The information was revealed in a press statement by AKA’s family today, 14 February.
“We’d also like to acknowledge our extended family, the Mohosanas, for their unwavering support during this time, as Bongani Mohosana will be in absentia at the memorial and funeral due to observing cultural protocol,” said the statement.
Meanwhile, industry friends gathered at his house in Dante Complex in Bryanston, Joburg, today.
The 35-year-old was shot and killed on Florida Road, Durban on Friday, 10 February.
Media personalities and Sports, Arts, and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa were also there to pay their last respects.
Rapper Amu said: “I am hurt and sad, that’s all I can say right now. It’s hard, magents. Trust me, I am not okay.”
Pastor Selwyn Ngwenya, formerly known as Mr Selwyn in the entertainment industry, said they received lots of love at his house.
“I have lost Flabba, Riky Rick, HHP, and many more close friends in the entertainment industry. It is hard for us as musicians,” Ngwenya said.
“This is very tough for us in the music industry. We are sad that our boy is gone now in this manner,” Ngwenya said.
He said something needed to be done as there is so much gun violence in Mzansi.
EFF Gauteng chairman Nkululeko Dunga said they were saddened by the rapper’s death.
“Crime is taking lives in our country and it is not good at all. We need to put a stop to this so that people can move freely and safely in our country,” he said.
