Somali-American musician Saado Ali Warsame has been killed in a drive-by shooting.
The singer/songwriter, who was also a member of parliament in Somalia, was gunned down when assassins ambushed her car in the capital Mogadishu on Wednesday (23Jul14).
Her driver was also killed in the attack.
Ali Warsame lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota but was popular in her native country for her politically-motivated songs.
Police in Mogadishu are trying to trace the gunmen.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
