DJ Zinhle and her daughter Kairo Forbes are learning to pick up the pieces since the brutal murder of rapper AKA, whom she shared the eight-year-old with.

AKA, real name Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, was shot and killed outside a Durban restaurant on 10 February this year.

The businesswoman and reality TV star recently took to Instagram to express the pain of comforting her baby when she misses the Company hitmaker.

“You will never understand the pain in my heart when my child is crying because she’s missing her dad. God help us,” she wrote.

However, when her post was shared by social media blog MDN News on X (formerly Twitter) it was used as a caption for a video that did not correlate to it. As a result, Zinhle was attacked on the social media platform and labelled an attention seeker, among other names.

Setting the record straight, Zinhle responded to an X user: “My baby. The people who wrote this article used a random video I had posted. What I said and this video were never linked until this article. I wasn’t comforting Kairo in this video. We were playing around at Vida. Stop doing too much,” she said, further adding” anything to fry me” when a fan took her side.

The Thula DJ also said: “It’s insane how far people go in this platform without knowing the facts. Most of the things that bother people on this platform are not even true. But then everyone is so righteous out here, blindly so.”
