Chaka Zulu, whose real name is Ahmed Obafemi, longtime manager for rapper Ludacris was in an altercation in Atlanta on June 28 during which he sustained a serious gun wound. One person, Artez Benton, died and Zulu and another were injured and hospitalized during the incident.

According to Atlanta’s WSB-TV, Obefemi surrendered to authorities on Sept. 13 and bonded out the same day. He is facing murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, and simple battery.


He is also the co-founder of Disturbing Tha Peace record label and has been a well-regarded member of the Atlanta music and business community for a very long time. We ask everyone to remember defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
