DJ Zinhle embraced the little accident because it is the name of her six-year-old daughter Kairo Forbes. The Umlilo hitmaker and rapper AKA shared Kairo who already has one million Instagram followers. AKA and DJ Zinhle had an on and off relationship but called it quits in early 2020. The couple continue to coparent Kairo as they lead separate lives. 

DJ Zinhle revealed that Kairo spends most of her time with AKA’s mom Lynn “Glammy” along with her nannies.

After the former couple split, AKA started dating 22-year-old Anele “Nelli” Tembe. AKA was in love with Nelli and planned to marry her. However, just two weeks after he paid lobola to her family — she tragically plunged to her death from the tenth floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town on 11 April. 

DJ Zinhle moved on with Black Motion’s Murdah Bongz. The pair reportedly began dating in June 2020. In September this year they welcomed their first child Asante Mohosana. Murdah Bongz also has another child from a previous relationship therefore, they have a blended family. 

The Hair Majesty owner revealed that she wants AKA and Murdah Bongz to get along so she can have a healthy family dynamic. 

“That is the hardest question… so how am I going to blend Bongani and his kid with me,” said Zinhle.

“How am I going to bring Bongani and his kid with me? So there’s Kiernan and Kairo on this side and Bongani and his child on the other side. I need to find a way to make Bongani and Kiernan get along. Thats the only way this is going to work,” she continued.
