South African DJ and entrepreneur Ntombezinhle Jiyane, popularly known as DJ Zinhle, has just confirmed her pregnancy and upcoming reality series via an Instagram post today (23 August). 


Following a source claiming that DJ Zinhle is pregnant with her boyfriend Murdah Bongz baby, the media personality has confirmed the news! In a trailer for her upcoming reality series, DJ Zinhle is seen cradling a baby bump.

“She has been hiding her baby bump for an impressive six months despite attending numerous public events. She wears loose-fitting clothes,” said a source to Sunday World in June this year.

“She seems very happy and very excited about becoming a mother again. She looks great, she looks healthy, she’s glowing,” the source continued.

“Bongani is taking very good care of her, something she did not experience in her previous pregnancy. Bongani is answering to her every whim. He will make a great dad. He loves kids,” said another source to Sunday World.

DJ Zinhle has six-year-old Kairo Forbes with rapper AKA and is almost ready to welcome her second child with her beau Mudah Bongz, who won her heart with a sweet gesture.
