Johannesburg – South African football legend Benni McCarthy has expressed his shock following the death of multiple award-winning artist Kieran ‘AKA’ Forbes.
The Hip Hop artist was gunned down alongside his friend and bodyguard Tebello Motsoane outside a nightclub in Durban on Friday.
The Cape Town-born duo were friends and collaborated on one of McCarthy’s forays into the music industry.
“I’m absolutely heartbroken to hear of the passing of my bro Kieran Forbes, My condolences to Kieran’s family and little girl. RIP Young Kid,” wrote McCarthy on his Instagram account.
The pair were first spotted together on one of AKA’s most famous songs ‘Jealousy’ in 2014 and had continued to show support for each other for nearly a decade.
Forbes and McCarthy also shared a mutual love for English football giants Manchester United, where McCarthy is currently a part of the technical team.
Other football legends and clubs like Teko Modise and Kaizer Chiefs echoed the sentiments of McCarthy
