Music Executive Chaka Zulu Arrested On Murder Charge In Georgia

In accordance with WSBTV, music executive and Ludacris longtime manager and co-founder of Disturbing Tha Peace record label, Chaka Zulu, was recently arrested on a murder charge. Chaka, whose real name is Ahmed Obafemi, can be charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm through the commission of a felony, and simple battery. Jail records show he surrendered to authorities on September 13th and posted bond exactly the same day.

Once we previously reported, Chaka was among three people shot on June 26th following a reported fight outside his Buckhead restaurant. Following a shooting, Chaka was transported to a healthcare facility. Atlanta Police Department officers said the shooting stemmed from a disagreement in a parking lot behind a strip center. The shooting led to the death of 23-year-old Artez Benton.

Chakas attorney released a statement concerning the charges stating, Mr. Chaka Zulu, a beloved son of the town of Atlanta, is disappointed in the Atlanta Police Departments decision to create charges against him surrounding the shooting that occurred in June 2022. A detailed review of all the evidence, like the surveillance footage and eyewitness interviews, reveals that Mr. Zulu was attacked and jumped from behind by way of a gang of at the very least four (4) individuals (sadly like the decedent) and was forced to guard himself following this gang repeatedly stomped, punched, and kicked him while he was on the floor in a defenseless posture.

It continued, Mr. Zulu was shot in the trunk through the shooting and nearly lost his life, and continues to be dealing with the nearly fatal injuries he sustained that evening. Mr. Zulu was at his office that night and had every to defend himself. So that they can save his life, Mr. Zulu lawfully discharged his weapon in self-defense, a weapon he is licensed to transport. Mr. Zulu fully cooperated with police and their investigation and voluntarily turned himself in once he learned of the arrest warrants. Mr. Zulu remains confident that his name will undoubtedly be cleared of most charges through the judicial process. It isn’t lost on Mr. Zulu that someone lost his life, but had Mr. Zulu not lawfully defended himself, Mr. Zulu could have been killed that night.
