With both parents in the entertainment industry, it was just a matter of time before Kairo Forbes – the daughter of DJ Zinhle and the late AKA – forged her own path.

And at just seven years old, the bubbly “influencer” is doing just that in her first official solo gig. Kairo is the face of Nedbank’s Chow Town, a Roblox-type virtual game geared at children.

The game is geared at teaching young children important financial lessons.

In a clip shared on various social media platforms, Kairo Forbes encourages her peers to sign up to play Chow Town.

She says in the clip: “As a young girl, I’m at that age where I feel like a real boss.”

Looking at mom DJ Zinhle, Kairo quips: “I know she’s the boss of the house, but I’ll show her who the boss of Chow Town is.”

According to Nedbank, Chow Town was developed to “help to nurture budding young gamers’ entrepreneurial and financial management skills.”

It added: ‘The game integrates lessons on budgeting, investing, and financial decision-making, equipping children with the knowledge to make informed choices about their money as they grow older”.

And with both parents being hands-on with their finances and business ventures, Kairo’s gig makes perfect sense.

Meanwhile, fans of AKA are comparing a throwback image of him to his daughter Kairo Forbes.

Just days after the three-month anniversary of AKA’s death, his mom Lynn Forbes posted a bittersweet throwback of the star.

“Cut from a different cloth”, she captioned an image of the young rapper embracing her.

And just one look at the pic, it was clear the resemblance between the late star and his daughter Kairo.
