DJ Zinhle shared a sweet and sentimental tribute to her “baby daddy” AKA. She spoke about their co-parenting and their daughter Kairo. Take a look…

“Kiernan, I am so sorry that you have been robbed of your time with your daughter, with @nadianakai, Steffan, your mom @lynnforbesza , dad and all of us. I would give anything for Kairo to have more time with you Kiernan. The thought of her asking questions breaks me. What do I do when she misses and needs you? Please watch over her and plead with The Almighty to guide Bongani @murdahbongz and I as we raise our daughter,” she wrote.

“The last time I saw you, you told me how proud you are of us and how well we were co-parenting, we had come a long way and even though it challenged a lot of people in how well we co-parented. It was never about society or us, it was always about our daughter and what was best for her,” she wrote.

“We quickly learnt that our differences would not be a burden for our daughter, our past mistakes could not deprive our daughter of a happy childhood with love from both mom and dad. I am so glad we figured it out, it’s as if we knew you would not be around long enough. Thank you for loving her the way you did,” she continued.

“We will continue to do what’s best for her, we will raise her in a loving environment that encourages forgiveness, one that is deeply rooted in the great spirit of being a family…over everything else. We are all responsible for her happiness now, my family and yours will pull together to make sure she is the happiest girl in the world…exactly how you always made her feel,” she continued.

“Good night Kiernan. You told me God is in control, I will hold on to these words as we piece together the pieces of our shattered hearts. We will comfort and love Nadia, she is family now. God bless you,” she added.

This followed AKA’s girlfriend Nadia Nakai breaking her silence on the rapper’s death on Sunday 19 February.

Before DJ Zinhle and Nadia, Murdah Bongz spoke out on AKA’s death. Murdah is the father of DJ Zinhle’s one-year-old daughter Asante.

“Dear Kiernan, I took a little longer than I had to write this, but to be honest I didn’t know what to say. As a fellow musician thank you bro, thank you for inspiring all of us to do better, thank you for always proving your love for music in the quality of music you created. Your catalogue will be one of the greatest catalogues of all time,” he wrote.

“As a man, I learned something very important from you, know your worth, no matter what happens in your life always know your worth… as a father, you were amazing, you did it all for Kairo and that shows in the love she has inside of her. Your legacy will live on, may you rest well with the many legends we look up to,” he continued.
