DJ Zinhle has been mum on her break-up with rapper AKA since news of their split broke. However the “Umlilo” hitmaker has finally broken her silence. Speaking to Drum Magazine , she shared that the reason behind her silence on the split was due to being booked and busy. Family and work are important to Zinhle, who said: “I am fine, I’m genuinely fine. I just have been overworked.
She said as far as her relationship with her baby daddy was concerned, they were civil towards each other and “one big happy family”. Kiernan, my mom and I, everyone is just getting along. Our break-up hasn’t broken up the family.
“It doesn’t have to be a romantic relationship to make a family work and that is what we are trying to do now. The duo ended their romance at the end of last year. Rumours of their break up started when Zinhle went on holiday with her BFF Pearl Thusi to Mauritius and AKA jetted off to South Korea on a solo holiday. After weeks of speculation, AKA confirmed their break-up in an interview on Metro FM in January.
The “Fela In Versace “hitmaker told DJs Sphectacula and Naves: “It’s been a crazy start to the year, I had to go away. I went on holiday. I was just speaking off-air that I went on a very cold holiday. As people might have noticed it’s my first holiday being a single man for many, many years.
Last month AKA also tweeted: “I’ve been single since 2019. What was I supposed to do? Inform you? This is not the first time that AKA and DJ Zinhle have parted ways. When they first broke up, AKA had cheated with Bonang Matheba. It is no secret that Bonang and DJ Zinhle have not been on good terms ever since it was rumoured that Bonang was dating AKA. DJ Zinhle called it quits with AKA after a 3-year long relationship in 2015, this after DJ Zinhle accused the rapper of having an affair with Bonang.
AKA and Bonang finally decided to go public about their relationship, which has since collapsed. Meanwhile, AKA’s mother Lynn Forbes has shown a great deal of loyalty towards DJ Zinhle, who is the mother of her granddaughter.
The pair have displayed a good relationship over the years, despite AKA and Zinhle’s messy breakups .The businesswoman spoke to DRUM Magazine on where she and Kairo’s mom stand. Glammy, as some know her by, has said that her relationship with the DJ will never change and the love is still there.
“My relationship with Zinhle is never going to change and neither will my relationship with Kiernan (AKA). I love them both dearly and I support both. They’re amazing kids. My relationship with Zinhle is never going to change,” she said.
The couple is notorious for having an on and off relationship, but that has never hindered Lynns’ relationship with Zinhle. In fact, if you may recall during their first breakup, Lynn’s relationship with her son was strained. This was caused by her loyalty to DJ Zinhle.
