Later in the day, DJ Zinhle, real name Ntombezinhle Jiyane, was seen arriving at AKA’s house to show her support. 

In a series of Instagram Stories, DJ Zinhle shared the sweet relationship 7-year-old Kairo Forbes had with her rapper dad. 

The musician also shared two photos of AKA alone – a blurry image of the rapper in front of the Golden Gate Bridge in the US and one in which he appears to be toasting to her.

DJ Zinhle also shared a reel in which AKA is dancing with Kairo. 


AKA and DJ Zinhle dated for months before going public with their relationship in 2014. Kairo was born a year later; however, the pair had gone their separate ways during DJ Zinhle’s pregnancy. 

DJ Zinhle is now married to musician Murdah Bongz. AKA was in a relationship with fellow rapper Nadia Nakai at the time of his death.
