SHE couldn’t believe it was all over. She thought she and AKA were still very much an item – but the way he treated her one fateful weekend left her in no doubt that things had changed. That something, Nicole Nyaba says, is his relationship with DJ Zinhle, his ex and baby mama.
They’re back together, the 26-year-old model, singer and video vixen claims. What’s more, Nicole believes they were already rekindling their romance when she and the rapper were still supposedly an item but she was no side chick, Nicole insists, speaking exclusively to DRUM as rumours of the AKA/Zinhle/Nicole love triangle swirl.
Now it seems DJ Zinhle and her baby daddy, AKA are seemingly in a good place, a couple of years ago, the exes were tabloid fodder when it was reported that AKA had allegedly cheated on the DJ while she was pregnant with their daughter.
The exes had one of the messiest breakups and they even brought their drama on social media when they had a Twitter fight. After AKA broke up with his girlfriend, Bonang Matheba whom he allegedly also cheated on with another socialite Nicole Nyaba, the exes (AKA and DJ Zinhle) have been somewhat closer, sending each other public messages on Father's Day and Mother's Day respectively.
The stars recently caused a stir after they were both spotted with DJ Tira on the same day and fans are convinced that they are working on a December banger.
Take a look at the pictures below:

Meanwhile, Nicole Nyaba, who now vehemently claims that AKA and DJ Zinhle are back together after the touch my body hit maker dumped her, says she and the musician were living together as a couple and he made her feel like the most important woman in the world – until everything went south at the Vodacom Durban July.
“Before the weekend he was giving me ideas on how to do my hair and he even paid for my dress,” she says, referring to the jaw droppingly immodest number she wore to the glamorous event.
As soon as she returned to Joburg after the Durban July Nicole headed for AKA’s house, packed her bags and moved out. In retrospect, she realises things were going wrong in the run-up to the weekend. “He would go MIA [missing in action] and his friends would call me asking where he was.”
He sent her a message apologising for the Durban weekend but she didn’t believe it was sincere. “He only said that so if things don’t work out with Zinhle he can come back to me,” she says. “I asked him if he was with Zinhle and he admitted it.” Nicole suspects Zinhle “realised she wanted him back after she saw he was with me”, she says, but Nicole says she’s ready to move on, www.celebgossip.co.za has learnt.
In August this year, after a picture of DJ Zinhle and AKA locking eyes and in each other’s arms circulated on Twitter, tweeps were convinced that the two are back together.
The two artists, who are co-parenting their daughter, Kairo were snapped embracing each other at Taboo nightclub in Johannesburg over a weekend in August.
Now we’re seeing AKA and Zinhle publicly supporting each other and sharing precious moments with their daughter Kairo. Zinhle was also spotted wearing one of AKA’s T-shirts in Sandton City, Johannesburg.
So, does this mean they’re getting back together any time soon? Well, Zinhle was asked this question on The Drive on Metro FM and she said no, adding that they’re not planning on getting back together. Zinhle also confirmed that they’ve had a conversation about it.
Are things good between them?
“Yeah, yeah. We are good. I have totally [forgiven him]. We are in a good place, man. We are raising the child together. We get along, it’s fun,” she told Mo Flava and Masechaba Ndlovu.
DJ Zinhle, on Fathers' Day acknowledged that her daughter has the world's best dad, meaning she still believes that AKA is the best man who should father her kids if ever she wants to have more.
AKA was also asked if he still loves DJ Zinhle and if he sees himself dating her again.
He said: “Man, I don’t have a crystal ball, I can’t really tell the future. But what I can tell you is that we’re committed to make a new example for people. People have babies with each other don’t get along. We just decided we wanted to do it differently.”
