DJ Zinhle and slain rapper Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, popularly known as AKA, welcomed Kairo Forbes in July 2015. The pair were in an on and off relationship for a few years before reportedly calling it quits in 2020. AKA moved on with Anele “Nelli” Tembe. However, Nelli tragically plunged to her death from the tenth floor of the Pepperclub Hotel in Cape Town while on vacation with the rapper at just 22 years old.

DJ Zinhle moved on with former Black Motion star Murdah Bongz and they welcomed Asante Mohosana. This was also Murdah Bongz’s second child as he has a son from a previous relationship. Murdah Bongz paid lobola for DJ Zinhle so they refer to each other as husband and wife, but they have not yet had their wedding.

AKA then moved on from Nelli with rapper Nadia Nakai in December 2021. AKA and Nadia confirmed their romance in March 2022. AKA was tragically shot dead outside of Wish Restaurant on Florida Road, Durban on 10 February.
