On Sunday 18 June, South African DJ Ntombezinhle Jiyane, also known as DJ Zinhle, devoted a touching Father’s Day message to her late “baby daddy” AKA. This was Kairo Forbes’ first Father’s Day without her father.
On Father’s Day, June 18th, DJ Zinhle devoted a heartfelt tribute to her “baby daddy” AKA. Musician Kiernan Jarryd Forbes, widely known as AKA, was shot dead outside of Wish Restaurant on Florida Road on February 10th, before he made it to the gig he was booked for that night.
Kairo Forbes was born in July 2015 to AKA and DJ Zinhle. Kairo had her first Father’s Day without her father. The seven-year-old had a special relationship with her father. The father-daughter team was frequently seen dancing and having a good time together.
In her Instagram Story dedicated to AKA, DJ Zinhle expressed her love for Kairo and sent love to AKA’s mom Lynn Forbes.
“@kairo.forbes we love you so much! We will always let you know how great your dad was. @lynnforbes sending you all my love. Happy heavenly Father’s Day,” she wrote.
DJ Zinhle also has a one-year-old daughter named Asante Mohosana with musician and soon-to-be-husband Murdah Bongz. The musician has been “step dad” goals to Kairo since the passing of her father in February.
