The murder of Tupac Shakur remains one of the biggest unsolved crimes in the music industry,as no one has ever been convicted of his drive-by killing .

Now, a new conspiracy theory posted online claims the rap icon could be hiding in East Africa.

A man claims to have seen Tupac, alongside well-known friend and founder of Outlawz hip-hop group – Yaki Kadafi, in Somalia.

“I’ve seen Tupac and Kadafi way after their said deaths – in Somalia,” Suldaan Mahdi says in the post, according to the Daily Star .”I’ve seen them both alive. I was in a car and they were heading in the other direction.”Kadafi was doing some kind of hand signals – he looked kind of funky.”I saw them alive way after their said deaths.”

Kadafi was found slumped in the third-floor stairwell of an apartment building in New Jersey just two months after Tupac’s death.

Last year it was revealed a new documentary has uncovered a significant find – or rather, loss in the famous murder.

Because the gun used to fatally shoot Tupac in the chest at 11.15pm on the night of September 7 1996 has been missing… for over a decade.
