Rapper AKA and his ex and baby mama DJ Zinhle have been a topic of a lot of conversation recently, because of their blended family situation. Now, as the rapper dishes on how he and Zinhle first met, Mzansi is conflicted about his revelations. 
A clip recently emerged online of Kiernan in an interview in which he dished on the details of how he and his ex met. He said they first met at a gig they were both playing, but it was not the first time they spoke. 

He further revealed that Zinhle had slid in his DMs first, when she saw that they were both booked for the same event. She made her case, saying she would love to do a song with him, but he did not buy her reasons. 
They finally met, but she did not let him “hit” on the first day. But he was proud of himself for getting her eventually, which gave the audience quite the chuckle. 
The clip was shared on social media, stirring up a lot of controversy. The first red flag, as fans noticed, was that AKA’s version of the story apparently differed vastly from Zinhle’s. 
According to Zinhle, they met at a show in Botswana, after she had DM’ed him first, which aligns with AKA’s version. She agreed that she asked for the song, but they ended up having a baby instead. And yeah, Kiernan still owes her a song, as she said. 

Zinhle, though, said that they definitely kissed on the first day. They met on a Saturday, and by Sunday evening they were an official couple. I guess when you know you just know. 
Other fans felt like it was disrespectful of AKA to be telling the story, especially because he used the word “hit”. They think that it is a demeaning word to use, and he should find a less ugly word for their intimate relationship. 

This is not the first time trouble is coming up because of word choice in relation to an intimate relationship. When he went on Podcast and Chill with MacG, Jub Jub revealed that he had “smashed” Amanda du Pont, much to the chagrin of the listeners.

He was called out and wound up apologising to Amanda for being insensitive, but the damage was already done, and the story erupted in rape allegations and court proceedings, which are yet to be resolved. 
It seems that Kiernan and Zinhle still have a pretty great relationship. Even though they still have a few kinks to work out as far as their blended family is concerned, they are co parenting greatly, and we love to see a lovely, healthy family.
