According to the Times of Eswatini, the two suspects (aged 28 and 29) are brothers from Durban, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) where the late rapper was murdered on 10 February 2023.

The Fela in Versace hitmaker and his celebrity chef friend, Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane, were gunned down outside a restaurant on Florida Road that fateful night.

The assassination was captured on video footage.

As per the Eswatini publication, the two suspects fled to the neighbouring country (where they have been renting a house) after committing a string of crimes, which also include the murder of three taxi owners.

Sources further revealed that three men were living in the house, however, one of them managed to escape when police pounced on them.

Eswatini’s Deputy Chief Police Information and Communications Officer Assistant Superintendent, Nosipho Mnguni, only confirmed the arrest of the two suspects.
