An eyewitness at the scene, who spoke on condition of anonymity said Forbes was shot while standing on the pavement when gunfire rang out shortly after 22:00.
Another police source confirmed that he was declared dead at the scene.
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Robert Netshiunda confirmed to News24 that a “well-known rapper” was gunned down in Florida Road, Durban on Friday evening just after 22:00.
“I can confirm that two men were killed and one of them is a well-known rapper. Police will not be releasing any names of the victims yet until a full investigation is completed” Netshiunda said.
