A mom, successful businesswoman and talented DJ Zinhle has received the Forbes Woman Africa Entertainer Award.
Forbes held an event to celebrate notable African women in various fields in KwaZulu-Natal this Friday, hosted by Pabi Moloi.
DJ Zinhle accepted her award with her daughter Kairo Owethu Forbes and has been flooded with messages from fans who couldn't be happier for the Umlilo artist.
The Citizen reports that other winners had included COGTA Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma who was awarded the Forbes Woman Africa Legacy Award and Charmaine Mabuza ( co-founder of Zamani Holdings) who bagged the Forbes Woman Africa Social Impact Award.
Commenting on the award ceremony, Forbes applauded those who had been honoured for their achievements:
“What a power packed evening! We extend our congratulations again to all our Forbes Woman Africa award winners – keep pushing the boundaries, crashing the glass ceiling and forging the path for other powerful African women."
Commenting on her win, DJ Zinhle highlighted the importance of instilling the seeds of power in our children:
"Let’s be sure to remind ourselves & our children that ‘You’re destined for greatness, live your life intentionally! Wake up with purpose and make the decision that every day is your day and don’t let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do. You’re the director of your life.”
Briefly.co.za reported that the break up with AKA hadn't gotten her down. Family is number one and Zinhle isn’t going to let a breakup ruin the strong team she had. They are still a unit, just not a romantic one.
“Kiernan, my mom and I, everyone is just getting along. Our break-up hasn’t broken up the family. It doesn’t have to be a romantic relationship to make a family work and that is what we are trying to do now.” And that right there is how a boss babe handles business!"
