South African DJ and businesswoman Ntombezinhle Jiyane, popularly known by her stage name DJ Zinhle and the father of her child, Black Motion’s Murdah Bongz subtly revealed the name of their baby, via an Instagram post today (9 September).


Fresh off the dancefloor, DJ Zinhle and Murdah Bongz did an all-black pregnancy photoshoot. Murdah Bongz wore black jeans, a black T-shirt with a black bomber jacket over it and black shoes. DJ Zinhle wore a Miss Boss Couture black gown showing off her ready-to-pop baby bump. The baby’s stroller is also black. 

It seems DJ Zinhle and Murdah Bongz have revealed the name of their baby in the background of the pictures. In the baby’s room, “Asante” is written in gold on the wall, which is most likely what the pair intend on naming their baby. 

Interestingly, this is the same name as Black Coffee and Enhle Mbali’s son. Does this mean DJ Zinhle is also having a baby boy? Not quite as the room seems to be pink in colour. Therefore, there are no safe assumptions of the baby’s gender as yet. Here is a snap of the stunning parents though.

“You took my heart,” wrote Murdah Bongz on Instagram when the caption was translated to English.

In a previous post Murdah Bongz showed off the then incomplete baby’s nursery in his “daddy-to-be announcement” post. DJ Zinhle on the other hand announced her pregnancy through the trailer of her “unexpected” upcoming reality show on BET Africa.

DJ Zinhle did an outfit change for her first-born Kairo Forbes’ big sister photoshoot. The Umlilo hitmaker has six-year-old Kairo Forbes with rapper AKA. 

The mother-daughter duo matched in white frilly gowns.

“Reporting for BIG SISTER duty! ????????❤️,” wrote Kairo Forbes on Instagram.

AKA’s mother, Lynn “Glammy” Forbes is the admin of little Kairo Forbes’ Instagram account. Therefore, Instagrammers praised the grandmother for showing such love and support to her son’s ex-girlfriend as she gears up to welcome her new baby. DJ Zinhle previously mentioned that Glammy Forbes, along with her mom and two nannies help her raise Kairo while she has her hands tied with several businesses.
