It’s mid-August 2018 and, despite what social media investigators might have to say about it, DJ Zinhle is currently single.
But what exactly happened to her last boyfriend, Brendon Naidoo, the one who replaced cheating AKA?
Although the two never publicly confirmed their break-up, it has been widely accepted in the entertainment industry that the two have split.
DJ Zinhle and Brendon started dating towards the end of 2016, a year after Zinhle had left AKA (exposing him for cheating on her in the process). Although things started slowly for the couple, Brendon quickly won the approval of Zinhle’s fans by showering her with gifts and treating her like a queen.
Their relationship seemed to go from strength to strength over the months, but a spanner was thrown in the works when Brendon was charged with fraud.
While the reports surrounding his impending case were worrying, all signs seemed to suggest that Zinhle would be sticking by her man through this difficult period.
However, tensions rose in the weeks that followed and it wasn’t long before we were reading about a rumoured break-up. It was difficult to separate fact from gossip, but comments from DJ Zinhle’s uncle seemed to suggest that things were not alright with the couple.
In an interview with Move! magazine, Zinhle’s uncle, Mthembeni Jiyane (yes, the same one who was livid with AKA after he cheated on his niece) revealed that he had issued a warning to Naidoo.
He said at the time: “The only thing which is better for him and Zinhle is to sort out their differences, and I was just knocking some sense in him. I am not interested in how they live their lives, but he must know that I care so much about Zinhle’s happiness,” he daid.
These comments were quickly followed by a post on Brendon Naidoo’s Instagram page, which suggested that he and Zinhle were still together. The post read: For My Love @djzinhle – I am blessed. Your presence is heaven to me. You supply all my needs. You make a way when there seems to be no way out. Your joy is my strength,”
However, that post would turn out to be the last picture these two would share of each other
According to a Daily Sun source, the DJ called off their relationship after “attempting to make it work too many times”.
Their source said in a February 2018 report; “I don’t think there is bad blood between them, but that chapter is closed for now.”
The source further elaborated: “Zinhle is a stable girl, when she loves, she loves hard and loyally. She was hoping that things would work out for the better for them but, unfortunately, they did not.”
It seems as if Brendon’s legal troubles took a huge toll on their relationship leading to an eventual split
In the meantime, it seems as if DJ Zinhle is happily single and has refused to entertain any talk of a romantic reunion with her baby daddy, AKA this week.
Just checked my phone after a meeting and I now see that you guys have decided that I have a boyfriend again… 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
Because hugging someone means y’all are dating.
