House music sensation DJ Zinhle, has seemingly confirmed that she is dating Black Motion member Murdah Bongz, name Bongani Mahosana.
Sunday World reported in June last year that the two musos were dating, but they denied it at that stage. However, while making a speech during the launch of the video of her latest single Indlovu, featuring Loyiso, Zinhle thanked Mahosana for his unwavering support, calling him “baby”, while the crowd was cheering.
“I would like to thank my family and friends, Nomuzi aka Moozlie, the team for making everything possible, Kalawa, NS Impact and most importantly Bongani, thank you so much baby,” Jiyane said with a beaming smile.
The allegations of sightings of the two hanging out lingered for months without any official confirmation from the couple. Judging by DJ Zinhle’s speech, the two are solid.
The couple is also alleged to be spending more time at Zinhle’s place, though Bongani has his own house.
They were also seen cuddly and locking lips as they were headed towards the parking lot. Mahosana is also said to be madly in love with Zinhle’s daughter Kairo. “They’ve been enjoying spending time together and getting to know each other better. They seem to be very serious about their relationship and business side of the industry,” said a source close to the lovebirds.
“Bongani and Kairo also seem to be getting along very well, which makes DJ Zinhle happy.”
The source said some of Zinhle’s family members have met Mahosana and like him. “He has met her brother and other family members,” confirmed the source.
This is Zinhle’s first public relationship since her messy split from hip-hop star AKA. AKA is engaged to his 21-year-old fiancée Nelli Tembe
DJ Zinhle, real name Ntombezinhle Jiyane, became the poster child for women who want to remain gracious after being cheated on. And in her case it was so much worse because the cheater was AKA and his mistress was Bonang Matheba, two of Mzansi’s most well-known stars.
AKA and Zinhle initially dated but their relationship ended chaotically, Celeb Gossip News reported last year. They were still involved, and she was pregnant with AKA’s daughter Kairo when he cheated on her with media personality Bonang Matheba. After being mum about the cheating scandal for months, Zinhle bravely shared that AKA had indeed left her for Bonang via her blog, Moments by Zinhle.
She wrote, “A week before our daughter was born, I found out about the affair between Kiernan (the father of my child) and Bonang Matheba. I also received confirmation of the rumours through a conversation I had with Kiernan, who confirmed that the affair had been going on for over five months.”
Regardless of the love triangle, Zinhle and AKA coparented Kairo after her birth and Bonang even spent time with the child several times. But it was only after his break-up with Bonang that AKA showed deep regret for what he put Zinhle through. He apologised to her live on Anele Mdoda’s SABC3 talk show, Real Talk with
Anele. He admitted that his relationship with Bonang had started off on a bad footing, saying, “The start of my relationship was painful because at the time I was in a relationship with my baby mama. And she was pregnant. And for me, what we put her through was wrong. I’ve apologised for that and I’m sorry for that.”
