The popular house DJ took to her blog, momentsbydjzinhle.com to confirm their relationship few hours ago. In a long statement written by Zinhle, she claims she discovered AKA and Bonang have been dating for 5 months all along—- (Bonang kissed DBanj on TV during those times,…. my word!).
“A week before our daughter was born, I found out about an affair between Kiernan (the father of my child) and Bonang Matheba. I also received confirmation of the rumours through an honest conversation which I had with Kiernan, who confirmed that the affair had been going on for over 5 months.”
Zinhle goes on to add that she will always respect him for his honesty.
“I have dealt with this and found peace with his choice. After the release of our first statement regarding the separation I felt that there was no need to go into details about the reasons, however, after the continued public display of Kiernan and Bonang’s relationship as well as the commentary surrounding it, it has become important for me to affirm my power as a women, my strength of character, my continued focus on my work and my commitment to being a positive role model.”
Despite the heartbreak, Zinhle says that she stands firm on her decision to support AKA as a father to her child and an extended member of her family.
“As I transition into a new phase of my life, navigating motherhood, work, family, friends. I want to look back at this moment and be proud of the choices I made as a role model not only for any women going through a hard time but for my little Kairo who I hope will pull strength and find courage to choose herself and trust in her own power.”
The rapper and her alleged partner AKA have released a press statement to reject their affair claims.
Here’s Bonang’s full statement:
This is to confirm that Ms Matheba is aware of the allegations made against her, and the media reports surrounding the matter.
We are taking these statements very seriously and are unfortunately unable to comment further as the issue has been handed over to Ms Matheba’s legal team.
We can however confirm that Ms Matheba is currently not involved in a relationship, as she has always stated. Bonang is solely focused on her work and the projects she is finalising to ensure she wraps up what has been an incredible year, with a bang.
Bonang is in good spirits and looking forward to the premiere of her E! News Special, which airs this evening on Dstv 124 at 8:00pm.
Here’s AKA’s statement:
As a result of DJ Zinhle’s recent blog post, I feel the need to provide clarity on the allegations contained therein.
I would have preferred that this could have been dealt with privately. Break ups can be tough and emotionally draining for all involved. I would like to add that myself and Bonang Matheba are not an item and never have been.
My energies are focused on my career and my daughter at this time.
