Wayne Brady honors Takeoff in 2022: Gun violence’must end’

On Sunday, as presenter of the American Music Awards 2022, Wayne Brady paused to honor Takeoff’s memory.

“We just lost Kirsnick Khari Ball, also known as Takeoff, a member of the innovative hip-hop trio Migos,” the comic informed the crowd.

“On behalf of everyone who loves hip-hop throughout the globe, we thank you, Takeoff, for your talent, and tonight we celebrate your memory,” said Brady, 50.

As the “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” alum said, a portrait of the deceased Migos member, who was tragically murdered on November 1, displayed behind Brady on-screen.

The 28-year-old was at 810 Billiards & Bowling in Houston, Texas, with his uncle Quavo when an altercation broke out and bullets were fired. No arrests have been made in his murder.

“We must end this senseless and horrific gun violence,” Brady said of the incident, adding citing the Saturday night shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

In a shooting earlier this month, Takeoff was killed.
