R.I.P: The Late AK-47 with his twins

Thought to be one of the greatest dance-hall artistes to have graced the music industry, the late AK47 unlike his brothers, was never into wrangles and his music career was something good to write about.

Some of his most prominent songs include “Gal a bubble’, AK, Ebaluwa, Kidandali ‘Tukikolemu’, ‘Action packed’, and “Ndimulokole’, the last track he did among others.

He was buried three days later at his ancestral home in Mityana after a public viewing at the National Theatre where thousands of his fans, friends and family gathered to pay their last respect.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.
