It can’t be easy to raise a child while being a celeb and having the public eye on you all the time, but DJ Zinhle is doing a mighty fine job.
She’s raising 3-year-old Kairo like a boss, with the co-parenting help of her baby daddy, rapper AKA.
According to a report by TimesLIVE, Zinhle tries to involve little Kairo in her upbringing because she’s such an independent girl.
The DJ tries to involve Kairo in her shows and events if she can, keeping her close and showing her what her mother does for a living.
I just realise how independent she is becoming and how understanding she is becoming of my work. I think it is down to communication and involving her as much as possible. If there is an event that she can be part of, I try involve her
Zinhle’s secret to raising her child so well is ignoring the outside noise and focusing on what is best for them.
It’s about remembering that she is my child. I don’t listen to what other people may say. I don’t spoil her. I try to raise her to be as considerate as possible. At the end of the day she is still a child.
I post to inspire moms and show them that they can balance working with being a cool mom. But it can be really easy to get caught up in wanting to post about everything. I have had to make a conscious decision to have private moments with her. I try be in moments with her that she will appreciate later. Those are the moments I cherish the most.
Despite being a very popular and successful DJ, Zinhle hopes Kairo won’t want to follow in her footsteps one day.
I would probably encourage her if she told me that she wanted to be a DJ but I hope she doesn’t.
She and AKA have discussed the important topic of allowing their child to follow her own dreams.
We were both given the opportunity to pursue our dreams so we can’t now decide for her what she can and can’t do. She is experimenting with a lot of things.
She is a child and exploring. She does karate and other hobbies. Who knows what she will end up as.
Zinhle is a truly inspiring mother, and we take our hats off to her. She’s nailing it!
