DJ Zinhle in numbers

30 – The day of the month when Zinhle was born.

2004 – The year she began her career as a DJ. She always knew she was made for a career in show business. At first, she thought this would be as a TV presenter. It wasn’t to be as she fell in love with Djing just watching her brother.

11 – The letters in the name of DJ Zinhle’s new bae. Having broken up with her baby daddy, AKA, many might nurse the thought, no matter how outlandish, that the two might get back together. If you nursed this thought, you are forgiven. You are very wrong. The DJ has found a new man. He is Murdah Bongz, the producer and second of the music duo Black Nation. His real name Bongani Mohosani and his real occupation these lockdown days is loving Zinhle.

The two have been an item since at least the second quarter of 2020 but they kept it all hushed up. In June, Bongz shared an image of Zinhle’s eyes on IG, no comments, just eyes. Even though he deleted within seconds, the whole world had seen it and reposted. Not the whole world pe se, but DJ Zhinle saw this and reposted which is exactly the same as the whole world for the smitten Murda Bongs.

The cat finally came out of the bag in July 2016 just that it wasn’t a cat, it was a gorgeous piece of a man.
