DJ Zinhle and AKA
DJ Zinhle was dating rapper AKA but they broke up a week before the birth of their daughter after DJ Zinhle found out that he was cheating on her with Bonang Matheba.
‘A week before our daughter was born, I found out about an affair between Kiernan (the father of my child) and Bonang Matheba. I also received confirmation of all rumours through an honest conversation which I had with Kiernan, who confirmed that the affair had been going on for over 5 months.
I will always respect him for his honesty.
I have dealt with this and found peace with his choice.
After the release of our first statement regarding the separation I felt that there was no need to go into details about the reasons, however, after the continued public display of Kiernan and Bonang’s relationship as well as the commentary surrounding it, it has become important for me to affirm my power as a women, my strength of character, my continued focus on my work and my commitment to being a positive role model.
Never have I understood the challenges confronted by those women I delivered elaborate speeches to without fully understanding their pain. That being said, after a long period of introspection, I would still say what I have always said to every women who has come to me with their challenges and pain.’ DJ Zihnle wrote on her blog
On 12th August 2018 a picture of Dj Zinhle and AKA getting cosy began circulating after they were spotted at Sandton nightclub and rumors began circulating that they were back together.

DJ Zinhle and Pearl Thusi
DJ Zinhle moved in with her bestie Pearl Thusi recently while contractors put the finishing touches ON her new house, and the Colours hitmaker couldn’t be happier.
“We live in the same house. Two nannies, two babies and two working mothers. It is so much fun,” she told Tbo Touch on Touch HD this week.
The pair have been inseparable for months and were even nominated in the best couple category at the Feather Awards recently. Zinhle said the best part of living with her best friend is that she learnt so much from Pearl.
“She is a better mother than me because she has more experience as a mom. She is teaching me a lot because sometimes I don’t understand what is happening with Kairo. I’m like, ‘Why is she screaming?’ And she will teaching me how to handle a situation”
Zinhle is not one to complain about her friend but said the most frustrating thing was how Pearl took forever to get out the house.
“She takes forever to get out the house. You don’t understand. We will be like, ‘We’re leaving now’, and she’ll be like, ‘Okay, babe. Let me grab this’ and she’ll be on the phone, on the bed and I’m like, ‘I’m in the car waiting for you’ and she’ll be like, ‘ You didn’t say we were leaving,'” she explained.
Speaking to Channel O recently, DJ Zinhle explained how the pair ended up staying together.
“I didn’t have a house, I was literally homeless because of my building and she was in New York and forced me to move into her house, so I moved myself, my nanny and my baby into her house,” she said.
Zinhle has been building her house for some time now and as it nears completion, she has shared several pictures of her new place.
