Reknowed Graffiti artist Bankslave has honored the late South African artist AKA with a mural in Nairobi.
Bankslave, in conjunction with Nairobi County, has honored the rapper killed mid this month with the beautiful mural in Kibera having been a big influence in the Kenyan hip-hop scene.
The 35-year-old rapper was shot at close range outside a restaurant in eastern Durban on February 10, 2023, becoming the latest victim of gun violence in South Africa.
AKA’s pan-Africanism touched all corners of the continent, and his sudden death after being assassinated shocked and saddened many.
Bankslave’s mural of AKA serves as a tribute to his life and a celebration of African talent.
“One of Africa’s best Rappers ever!!” said Bankslave on social media following the mural.
