If you’re not following Kairo Forbes on Instagram; what are you doing with your life? The adorable daughter of DJ Zinhle and AKA celebrated her 3rd birthday this past weekend while her parents were doing the most at Durban July. South Africa’s cutest celebrity kid has been serving us heart-melting pictures and videos since she’s been born, so we’re sharing our three favourite IG posts that feature the coolest kid in Africa.
If we could pick one person whose name would come up every time we talk Vodacom Durban July 2018, its award-winning designer and businessman David Tlale.
From his limited edition RED clutch bag, that Tlale released on the 18th of June in celebration of Durban July, to landing in a chopper on the day of the actual event, Tlale had a huge presence at the event this year.
‘Striking out into accessories has been an exciting new development for me and my vision is to make the individual feel and look sexier carrying this one-of-a-kind clutch bag,’ Tlale said about the launch of his RED clutch bag. For the actual event Tlale had a fashion show in collaboration with Vodacom Red, Red By David Tlale featured 10 different looks all showcasing the iconic designer’s take on the passion and power that red provokes, elevated by his signature silhouettes and dramatic showmanship.
‘Apart from the color itself, my inspiration came from a fusion of the streets – urban African living that I immerse myself in daily – and the innate lushness of Afro-futurism. The collection told 10 stories of how one feels when wearing red, the boldest of all colors,’ said Tlale about the show.
This past weekend DJ Zinhle and A.K.A put their differences aside and came together to celebrate their gorgeous daughter Kairo ‘Owethu’ Forbes’ 3rd birthday. Her actual birthday is only this weekend coming but the parents threw her a star-studded party. The guest list included Da L.E.S, Tshepi Vundla, JR Bogopa and more. Fans, friends and family have been posting to their various social media timelines to wish Kairo a happy birthday. See some of the pictures from the day here:
Not only is DJ Zinhle on the up and up with her career, the starlet is clearly making time to keep her body in check. In between writing a book, MC’ing at the hottest gigs and being a mamma to her beautiful daughter Kairo, she posts enviable pics on her IG showing her abs every girl dreams of having.
Take a look at some of these #fitspo pics here compliments of DJ Zinhle:
Last night DJ Zinhle was on Real Talk with Azania and she gave us all the feels.
DJ Zinhle had us reaching for the nearest box of Kleenex when she sat down with, newly-appointed Real Talk host, Azania Mosaka. From overcoming comparison syndrome to practicing forgiveness, Zinhle schooled us on how to win after going through a rough patch.
We never thought we could love Ms. Jiyane anymore, but she’s captured our hearts with her grace and humility, and the Twitter-verse feels the same way. See all the touching tweets that caused #RealTalkOn3 to trend.
Yesis.. DJ Zinhle is just so effortlessly genuine and authentic man her transparency in certain factors is extremely appreciated. What a WOMAN #RealTalkOn3
Humans are naturally curious creatures and when it comes to knowing what the inside of your favourite celeb’s homes our curiosity spikes sky high. So when one of South Africa’s most loved and successful DJ’s posted a picture of her new and improved glam room we just had to show you. DJ Zinhle posted a picture on Twitter captioning it, “My walk-in closet got an upgrade… I looooove roses. How amazing is this wallpaper?”

We couldn’t help but also fall in love with the gorgeous rose wallpaper. It looks like it comes straight from a dream home Pinterest board.
We weren’t the only fans, Cassper Nyovest tweeted her back expressing his love for her home. We’re assuming he’s seen a little more than just her glam room and we can’t help but be a little jealous. Ah, the life of an A-lister must be nice.
DJ Zinhle is not only known for her skills on the decks but she is also a successful businesswoman who has been in the industry for over 10 years now. She is also adding author to her list of successes after announcing that she will be releasing a self-help book for women with her co-creator Dennis Ngango. Describing the book, the star said: “It’s written with the understanding of the African women and what she goes through.”
She gave us a sneak preview of the book when she tweeted a snap captioned, “OMG!!! God!! #MeetingYourPower 11.06.2018.”
