The band also remembers one of its youngest members, Aqueel Davids, who was killed by a stray bullet from warring gangsters in September 2017 in Ocean View. His name is inscribed on the Ocean View wall of remembrance as “Aqueel Davids, forever 9”. For more information about the band, call Commander Mike Oldhat at 082 445 6857 or email denmike@iafrica.com
