Why DJ Zinhle distanced herself from Durban

DJ Zinhle had previously refrained from performing in Durban because she was not ready following the murder of AKA. The rapper was murdered on 10 February 2023 on the busy street of Florida Road. According to TimesLIVE, Zinhle said:

“I'm not ready for Durban. Emotionally, I'm not ready. I get anxious thinking about being there. It's going to be a while before I can be there.”
“I'm going through the most. Forget about seeing me in Durban. It's not that I am mad at Durban. It's just hard. It's only been three months since Kiernan died, so maybe with time. But I'm hoping I never change my mind.”

"We will be busy trying to gather some skills and education to be employable."


"May the employable gang go listen to her, the rest, we shouldn't bother."
