"Because I have to work, my love, otherwise you won't have food, you won't be able to buy clothes and all the stuff that mommy has to take care of.

Kairo said she understood that Zinhle had to work but still wanted her at home. She tried to reason with her mom and said she didn't mind going to work with her so they can be together.

The Umlilo hitmaker said the office was inappropriate for kids and reassured the girl that she would be home soon.

"If I have a show in the afternoon then you can come with me. But now I'm at the office with other big people, other adults... you'd be so bored."
