Musician and businesswoman DJ Zinhle — real name Ntombizinhle Jiyane Mohosana — has penned Father’s Day notes to her two children’s fathers (Mörda and AKA).


In a touching Instagram post, the Mdali DJ appreciated her husband Mörda (real name Bongani Mohosana) for being an amazing father to her children. Zinhle and the Mohigan Sun hitmaker share daughter, Asante Mohosana, who was born in 2021.

The Era by Zinhle business owner also has another daughter, Kairo Forbes, with late rapper AKA.

“Happy Father’s Day @murdahbongz, you are the most incredible man and world’s greatest father to our children.

“The babies and I love you so much, we feel so blessed to be led by such a kind & thoughtful man. Wishing you more love, success & laughter, I couldn’t do this without you boo.

” love the way you love us. Thank you for putting our family first,” she said to Mörda.

She aalso expressed pain that AKA — real name Kiernan Forbes — is no longer with them.

“To Kiernan: Sending Father’s Day wishes to heaven. Your absence is felt deeply, but your spirit continues to shine this Father’s Day through our memories and stories. Kairo misses you everyday.”


AKA was murdered in Durban on 10 February 2023. His friend Tebello “Tibz” Motsoane – who was a celebrity chef — was also killed in the incident.

Over a year later, the South African Police Services (SAPS) revealed that seven suspects were arrested in connection with the alleged hit.

Lindokuhle Mkhwanazi, 30, Lindani Shishela Ndimande, 35, Siyanda Myeza, 21, Mziwethemba Gwabeni, 36, and Lindokuhle Lindo Ndimande, 29, appeared on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, two counts of murder, unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and five counts of attempted murder.

In addition, the state added two charges of money-laundering.

Two of the seven accused, brothers Siyabonga Gezani Ndimande and Malusi Dave Ndimande, are being extradited to South Africa after they were arrested in Eswatini in February.

On 15 May, when the five men in South Africa appeared at the Durban Magistrate’s Court, they were denied bail by Judge Vincent Hlatshwayo.
