- In a recent interview, DJ Zinhle opened up about her relationship with AKA
- She admitted she was the one who approached him by "sliding into his DM"
- And after their nasty breakup, Zinhle said her dad's death helped her realise how important forgiveness is
Nowadays AKA and DJ Zinhle hangs out together with their daughter, Kairo, but no one can forget how they split up in the first place.
DJ Zinhle and AKA's relationship made headlines when he cheated on her with Bonang Matheba while she was expecting his child.
However, years have passed and it appears the former lovers are finally in a good place- in fact, some even believe there might be a chance of a rekindled relationship.
Recently, Zinhle opened up about her relationship with the father of her child in an interview with Dennis Ngango.
She explained she was actually the one who approached AKA by "sliding into his DM".
“I slid into the father of my child's twitter years ago, and I was like: ‘Yo, do you wanna do a song together?’, I didn’t want to do a song with nobody but, I was like: ‘This guy is cool, he’s nice’ and he was like: ‘Sure, let’s do the song, send me ideas’, I never sent him the song cause there was never a song but, years later we then met and made a baby” she said.
The DJ then went on to add after her father passed away, she opened her up to forgiveness.
“My first real lesson about forgiveness was with my dad, when he passed...when you hold a grudge, it’s a lot of energy, it’s exhausting and you have to wake up every day and remember that you hate that person, and remember that person did you wrong...it goes as far as, you start wishing bad on them...you have to forgive for yourself", she said.
So, what does her future hold? Zinhle did not let it slip if she would be rekindling her relationship with AKA, but she did announce she would be releasing a self-help book aimed at South African woman.
I’m releasing a book on the first of June - it’s gonna be available at CNA stores - it’s a self-help book for women, I co-wrote it with Nokubonga Mbanga we decided let's rather write a book that can help women from wherever they are, and it’s written with the understanding of the African voice, African women, what we go through, like the pressure to get married...and it’s just also from our own experiences, crises, distress...whatever we’ve gone through...it’s a motivational book for specifically targeting women - I’m not saying men can’t read it - and it’s called Meeting your Power."
