South African DJ Ntombezinhle Jiyane, popularly known as DJ Zinhle, posted a sweet birthday tribute to her “baby daddy” rapper AKA’s mom Lynne Forbes on Tuesday 12 July. 


DJ Zinhle and rapper Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, popularly known as AKA seem to be doing an amazing job at co-parenting and blending their families. The pair both get trolled on Twitter for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day tributes to each other and more. 

AKA and DJ Zinhle were in an on and off relationship for years before they finally called it quits. This was because AKA was believed to have cheated on the Umlilo hitmaker with media personality Bonang Matheba.

AKA  moved on from the mother of his child with chef Anele “Nelli” Tembe. However, she tragically passed away in April 2021. Nelli plunged to her death from the 10th floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town while on vacation with AKA. 

Zinhle also moved on with Black Motion’s Murdah Bongz. The pair welcomed a baby girl named Asante together in September 2021. AKA then moved on from Nelli with rapper Nadia Nakai. 

Today (12 July) is AKA’s mom Lynn Forbes birthday and both AKA and DJ Zinhle took to Instagram to dedicate birthday posts to her.

“Happy birthday sister @lynnforbes. Love and appreciate you!!” she wrote.
