AKA shares heartfelt Mother’s Day tribute to DJ Zinhle
Rapper AKA shared an endearing Mother’s Day post dedicated to his baby mama, DJ Zinhle, on Sunday.
The ‘Star Signs’ hitmaker — who split from Zinhle shortly after the birth their daughter, Kairo, in 2015 — took to social media to thank her for “helping me raise a superstar of a daughter”. He posted a picture of Zinhle and Kairo with the caption: “HAPPY MOTHERS DAY @djzinhle 🌸 Thank You for giving birth to; and helping me raise our superstar of a daughter 🎀 @kairo.forbes ❤️ …. shots of WATERMELON for you today 🙏🏼😂 (sic)”.
Although the celebrity couple’s breakup was an “amicable separation”, according to the statement released at the time, it did come soon after the Sunday Sun reported that the reason for the split was that Zinhle had found out about an affair via texts on AKA’s phone. The alleged side chick was TV personality Bonang Matheba.
Following AKA’s split from Bonang in December 2017, Supa Mega admitted during an appearance on Real Talk with Anele in February that he’d been wrong in the way he handled his split from Zinhle.

“The start of my relationship (with Bonang) was painful because at the time I was in a relationship with my baby mama. And she was pregnant — what we put her through was wrong. And I’ve apologized for that. And I’m sorry for that. And maybe she (Bonang) will apologize for it one day as well,” he said.
“Zinhle is a great woman, a strong woman. A great mother. I was too stupid and too young to even recognise that and even see that. For me, it was never about taking joy. We (he and Bonang) just found each other.”
Following his post, Twitter CSI were hard at work as they tried to interpret what hidden message his tribute could be revealing, with some concluding that a reunion was on the cards because AKA and Zinhle seemingly spent Mother’s Day together.
Only time will tell…
