Cause Of AKA Death

According to reports, AKA has been on the radar of assailants who believe he played a role in Anele’s death.
As a result, he was barred from visiting Anele in Durban, Florida, where her father is almost the entire space’s leader.
According to the report, AKA was warned about a dragon on the outskirts of town, but he was unconvinced. He even shared his current location with his friends.
He wanted to make a strong statement about how he was not afraid of the threats to his life, so he decided to celebrate his 35th birthday on enemy territory.
Anele’s wealthy father and family have not recovered from the death of their daughter Anele in 2021, and it is widely assumed in South Africa that AKA was murdered in retaliation for not accepting responsibility for her fiancée’s death.
