AKA and DJ Zinhle were rumoured to be romantically linked from 2012 but only made their relationship public in 2014. Zinhle reportedly accused AKA of cheating on her with media personality Bonang Matheba in 2015 and called it quits. In July 2015, AKA and Zinhle welcomed Kairo.

The pair reportedly got back together in 2018 but broke up again in 2019. AKA then began dating Anele “Nelli” Tembe, who tragically passed away on 11 April 2021, just two weeks after the rapper paid lobola for her.

Nelli plunged to her death from the tenth floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town. The rapper later moved on with Nadia. While DJ Zinhle reportedly began dating musician Bongani Mohosana, popularly known as Murdah Bongz in 2020.

Despite their relationship ending, Zinhle and AKA maintained a healthy co-parenting relationship for Kairo. Zinhle welcomed her second child Asante Mohonsana with Murdah Bongz in August 2021 – who was also loved by AKA’s family.

Tweeps applauded DJ Zinhle for her healthy co-parenting relationship with the rapper. Take a look…
