He was one of three people shot in late June 2022.

Michael Seiden, a reporter for WSBTV tweeted the following.
BREAKING: Ludacris’ longtime manager Chaka Zulu arrested on murder charge. The music executive, whose real name is Ahmed Obafemi is also charged w/ aggravated assault, possession of firearm during
commission of a felony and simple battery, according to jail records.
Seiden also reported that Zulu surrendered to authorities and also bonded out on on Sept 13.
The news comes as a shocker, as Chaka Zulu has had a lengthy, tenured term as a business man. According to reports, Zulu was involved in a fracas that turned into a gun fight in June of 2022.
Chaka and the man begin exchanging words, according to sources who viewed the footage. The conversation becomes heated and another person of three held his hand by his waist.
Chaka Zulu did not back down as it escalated, even though a women seems to try calming the tension. Eventually a man bumps into Zulu and then he grabs him by his collar. Eventually, there are several men that attack him and begin to kick him after he’s knocked to the ground.
Reports say one of the men fire at least two shots at Zulu. Chaka Zulu, after getting back up, shot back.
Initial reports stated the unknown gunman fired off at least nine rounds during the incident, striking three. The men were transported to hospital where one of them died from his injuries.
Seiden reported that Artez Benton, 23, was one of the men that was shot and killed outside the club.
Benton’s sister Arteria told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, “We just want justice for Artez. That’s the main thing we want. So if you see something, say something please.”
