SINCE rapper AKA and media personality, Bonang Matheba, parted ways in December 2017, AKA and his baby mama DJ Zinhle have been spending more and more time together.
The pair, who broke up in 2015 because of an affair AKA had with Bonang, seem closer than before. They have both brushed off dating rumours and claimed their relationship is based on co-parenting their three-year-old daughter Kairo.
A few weeks ago, AKA was travelling and posted a video of himself in a plane on social media. In the background, a woman with green nail tips is seen waving at the camera. Twitter users investigated and found out that the lady with the green nail tips appeared to be none other than DJ Zinhle. To confirm that the pair indeed travelled together, they took individual pictures in the same spot and had similar backgrounds. The parents had, however, left little Kairo behind causing speculation that they are romantically involved.
This is not the first time Twitter users have ‘busted’ AKA and DJ Zinhle. In December of last year, actress and model Pearl Thusi, who is also DJ Zinhle’s best friend, posted a picture of herself and her car outside DJ Zinhle’s house. What she didn’t anticipate was her followers spotting AKA’s car inside of the garage in the background. The realisation of AKA’s car in the photo caused a frenzy on social media with everyone assuming that the pair is back together again.
THE MESSY THREESOME
When AKA got into a relationship with Queen B, he was already dating DJ Zinhle. Not long after giving birth to their daughter, Zinhle found out that her baby daddy was having an affair with Bonang who, at the time, was also her friend. A year ago AKA was a guest on 3Talk with Anele where he spoke openly about his relationship with Zinhle and how bad he felt for what he and Bonang put her through.
“I think what we put her through is wrong and I’ve apologised for that and I’m very sorry for that and maybe she’ll (Bonang) apologise for it one day as well,” explained the rapper.
“Zinhle is a great, strong woman. She's smart and a great mother. At the time, I was young and stupid to realise that.”
Both AKA and Zinhle's phones went straight to voicemail when Move! contacted them for comment.
