Don was among the few people who were present when the rapper was shot and killed.
Following the rapper’s successful memorial and funeral service, Design took to social media to pay tribute to his friend’s death.
“My heart is shattered and the past couple of days have been nothing short of surreal. I am writing this with great difficulty, trying to put into words what you really meant to me. I would never have imagined that I would be putting together such a message,” he wrote.
“I keep thinking about all the moments we shared and replaying our memories together. I wish I had one last chance to thank you for showing me what the true meaning of brotherhood is. I am indebted to you for believing in me, believing in my dreams and aspirational visions, especially in moments where I lacked such belief.”
Don applauded all that the late star has achieved; he also spoke about his work ethic.
“To Uncle Tony, Aunty Lynne, Stef, Baby K, Nadia & Zinhle – with heartfelt sympathy, may the Lord heal your hearts and comfort your souls. Let prayer be your ray of hope. Prayer has the power to transform pain and to lift your spirits so that you may overcome this moment. I love you.”
“Kiernan, you have left this world without me, but someday, in my heart of hearts, I believe we will meet again and be together again.”
