WATCH | DJ Zinhle on AKA: We were so good together‚ we made sense
DJ Zinhle may be shy to confirm whether she and rapper AKA are back together but has opened up about how the two are just right for each other.
Speaking to MacG on his PodcastnChill series this week‚ Zinhle was asked about her early relationship with AKA before the rapper cheated on her with Bonang Matheba.
She gave listeners a rare glimpse into their lives at the time and how they connected on such a deep level that they started officially dating only a day after going out for the first time.
Zinhle said the pair were great for each other and even tried for several months to have a child together
"We were good. Honestly‚ I won't lie‚ we were just so good together. We made so much sense together. I think being so different made us click. We are different but we worked out and made sense."
The couple were together for three years before they welcomed a baby girl they named Kairo.
Despite the drama of the last three years‚ which saw the couple break up‚ fight and then reportedly get back together‚ Zinhle said she would love to have another kid.
"I wish I was (having another baby) but the nine months process is just too long. I would like to but sho‚ man‚ taking time off work and...it is a lot."
AKA admitted during an interview with East Coast Radio in June that he still loved his baby mama and would not rule out the possibility of the two getting back together.
Meanwhile Zinhle told Real Talk at around the same time that they were just co-parenting.
"One thing South Africans are not short of is hope. We had this conversation recently and just decided let’s start a new conversation about co-parenting‚ a positive conversation about co-parenting. Let people look at us and think that it is actually possible to do this co-parenting thing and get along. It is something we are now working towards. We just want to get along and be there for each other."
