Most parents usually have endearing nicknames for their children and DJ Zinhle also had one, which was given to by her late father. DJ Zinhle has always spoken highly of her father. She once opened up about the close relationship that she shared with her late father, while growing up in Danhausser, Kwa Zulu Natal.
The Umlilo hit-maker has a tattoo in his honour and the emotional song by Luther Vandross, ‘Dance With My Father’, reminds her of their relationship as father and daughter, during his waking life.
Radio Monitor released the most played songs on radio last week. Zinhle’s song titled, Go! featuring Dr Duda and Lucille Slade, came out tops.
