South African musician and businesswoman DJ Zinhle — real name Zinhle Jiyane — has been called out by an Instagram user who said that she shouldn’t be advertising her products so soon after the death of her child Kairo Forbes’ father, Kiernan “AKA” Forbes. According to the troll, Zinhle should be considering her daughter’s feelings during this time and not trying to sell her fashion accessories.

Not letting this one go, Zinhle shared a scathing response with the troll much to the delight of her fans who applauded her for putting the troll in her place.

Shortly afterward, it was back to business as usual for Zinhle who once again started posting about her accessory company Era by DJ Zinhle.

This did not sit well with one of her followers who shared that she did not think Zinhle was being thoughtful about Kairo’s feelings by advertising her products less than a month after AKA’s passing.

“Your daughter’s feelings should be more important to you than the handbags,” the naysayer said.
