Johannesburg- It's been two years since hip-hop star Khuli Chana was shot by police in a case of mistaken identity. 

The musician was shot at by police officers, after he apparently failed to stop at a roadblock set up at a petrol station on the N1 in Midrand on 28 October 2013. 

Police allegedly mistook Khuli Chana for a group of men, who were wanted in connection with a kidnapping in Bedforview. 

In a statement released by the rapper on the anniversary of the ordeal, Khuli revealed that the shooting incident has given him new perspective on life. 

"Two years ago on this date my life changed forever. The shooting incident has given me new perspective and meaning on life. I have found a new purpose in life and I recently purchased a 'Bullet 4 Peace' neckpiece as a symbolism that good things can come out of a bad situation. I have decided to make lemonade out of the lemons that were thrown at me," the rapper said. 

Khuli added that he is thankful to everyone who supported him through the ordeal. 

"As I commemorate this day with my family and loved ones, and give thanks to God for my life, I would like to thank all those who supported me through that period -  fans and the media," he said. 

Bullet 4 Peace is an organisation that collects used bullet casings from around the world, which are used to make neck pieces giving the bullet case a new purpose. 

And, for Khuli it means "reloading life."
