AKA Finally Confirms Split From DJ Zinhle

AKA confirmed that he had split from DJ Zinhle.

The Baddest hitmaker spilt the tea in an interview on Metro FM on Wednesday afternoon, telling DJs Sphectacula and Naves that he went on holiday “as a single man” for the first time in years.

“It’s been a crazy start to the year, I had to go away. I went on holiday. I was just speaking off-air that I went on a very cold holiday. As people might have noticed it’s my first holiday being a single man for many, many years,” he said.

AKA did not go into details of the split but said he was “re-centering” himself for 2020.

“It was a bit different but you know it was a boys trip and it was all about just re-centering myself for 2020. We have so much coming up this year. I’m just getting myself in the right frame of mind to continue to dominate the radio, the charts and everything else.”

When contacted, AKA’s manager, Phumza Nohashe, said: “I don’t comment on his personal life. Ask me about his professional life and I can comment on that. So at this point I won’t be giving comment.”

 

Zinhle has remained largely silent on the claims, enjoying a holiday with friends in Mauritius while the rumours spread.

She shared a post about not being phased by gossip and later responded to a teaser post about the story by editing the headline from “AKA dumps Zinhle over Cassper” to “DJ Zinhle crowned the number one female DJ in Africa”.

She said she had “fixed” the headline to reflect “news that is accurate and fair”.

Zinhle also had fans guessing when she retweeted a poster promoting AKA’s upcoming tour and commented on a picture of the rapper and the couple’s daughter Kairo together, saying, “Love you two”.

Rapper King Kaka Receives Dancehall Backup Of Wajinga Nyinyi In New Song ‘Daima Mjinga’

Barely a week after outspoken Kenyan rapper and poet, King Kaka’s controversial song ‘ Wajinga Nyinyi’ has dropped off from the trend charts anotherone has come up to join in the movement to enlighten on the nature of the country’s divisiveness that brings to light and addresses scandals, corrupt civil servants and the state of the nation.

The new song has been done by Gabiro Mtu Necessary and produced by UK based producer Redlum with mixing and mastering done at MGF Studios that is based in Kisumu.

In the song, the artist Gabiro Mtu Necessary uses his witty flow and lyrics composed in Luo to refer to his fellow citizens as fools who forget as soon as the music is off.

“Najua mshasahau, wacha sasa tubanjuke” Gabiro says in the opening words of the the song.

There is as much a cycle of scandals as there is a tendency of venting and moving on with the furore dying down and everyone making the same electoral mistake each and everyday. It is evident that Gabiro is feeling wasted as a fellow citizen seeing the like of Miguna Miguna being deported away from their motherland yet no one stands up to speak for himor on his behalf. Maybe fear is inbound!

With the keyboard warriors talking about revolution back to deep slumber and no longer engaging on social media, writing lofty revolutionary tales inspired by King Kaka’s Wajinga Nyinyi,he has decided to remind them to at least wake up and dance to their normal club bangers and get the feeds active once more.

As ever, Gabiro’s charming lyrical prowess is the star of the show, always delivered without a hint of strain. Lyrically, Gabiro mines a personal mood for inspiration, but contrasts the somber subject matter with a light and breezy delivery that will make you forget your worries in an instant — only if you don’t listen too closely to the lyrics.

In 2019  Gabiro Mtu Necessary released his collaborative tune ‘Nitembezee’ in which he featured talented super star Kidis the Jembe at a time when Kenyan artists were championing for moreplay of their sound on local media giving the song enough space to get airplay and features in various media.

Fronted by a captivating traditional melody and pulsating dancehall beat, “Daima Mjinga” puts forth a dominating sound from Gabiro. Full of charismatic verses and a fierce, brassy dance breakthat leads into the chanting choral refrain where he spends the track confidently expressing feelings of sorrow and disappointment.

Born and raised in Kisumu Gabiro has not only had the chance to work with Kidis but also big names like Wyre, Ketchup and even Uganda’s Nutty Neithan; he  has released a total of 10 singles, barely pausing for breath in between drops.
Enjoy.

I Feel Like I’m Having Déjà Vu With My Adopted Daughter: She’ll Tell Her Own Story – Pearl Thusi

Pearl Thusi prefer not to make a big deal about adopting her youngest child Okuhlekonke and wants her to detail her adoption story, if she chooses to when she is older.

In a recent interview on SABC 1’s Real Goboza, Pearl touched on being a mother to Okuhlekonke.

“I’m a mother to four-and-a-half-year-old Okuhlekonke and I have to wait for her to grow up and decide how she wants this story to be told.

“As much as I feel I’m a big part of this story, Thando is also a bigger part of this story in terms of the narrative right now. As much as I would like to say this is what happened and that happened, I have to protect so many people.

“in 15 years time if Okuhlekonke decides to tell you guys what happened and what’s happening, then that’s her choice to make.”

Pearl said Okuhlekonke has added a greater dynamic to the family.

Pearl said she tried not to make a big deal of the adoption because she is doing what countless women and grandmothers have done before her.

“It’s been really incredible. I’ve tried not to make a big deal of it in terms of talking about it. Women do this every day, our grandmothers did this for our parents. There are aunties, women have to travel and then someone has to take care of their children. It’s a village and I’m an African and I live by everything that an African means as much as I possibly can.”

“So, I feel like right now all that I can admit to is being her mother, and that I’m very proud of that, and that she’s a very sweet, kind and loving child.

“She’s amazing, Thando is the sweetest little big sister. She’s already got two other sisters and she’s been so helpful. I think because she’s got the same sisters who are the same age mates as Okuhlekonke, she’s been so helpful even with me now.”

While her eldest is 12 years old, Pearl said raising Okuhlekonke was like having déjà vu “all over again”.

“I feel like I’m having déjà vu because I haven’t had a four-year-old in, like, what — eight years? So everything feels new until I remember again.”

“I’m a mother to four-and-a-half-year-old Okuhlekonke and I have to wait for her to grow up and decide how she wants this story to be told”
