DJ Zinhle is one celebrity who has captured our hearts and imaginations over the years. If she's not seducing you with her mad musical mixing skills, she's certainly got you envying her amazing work ethic and hustling spirit. Tonight, however, we'll have the chance to get to get to know the side of DJ Zinhle that might not be on display everyday. In her interview on Nicky Greenwall's show, The Close Up, Zinhle talks about fame, her relationship with AKA as well as body issues she's encountered. 

On the topic of body issues, Zinhle is straight forward as she says, 

"When I was growing up I was worried about my body structure; big shoulders, and I used to get teased about it and then when I grew up into a lady people would be like, "Your body is amazing!" and I was like "Really?". Then, I started enjoying my body and then, the 'fame' thing came and the body is not good enough: "You (…) look like a boy" or the crazy things people say."

Many people have often wondered about her relationship with local rapper AKA. Zinhle doesn't hold back, but clarifies exactly why there's so much mystery around their relationship. 

"It was something that we spoke about and I said, "Listen, I don’t want you out there as my boyfriend I am not going to put you out there as the guy I am dating. You need to do what you do and I need to get out there for me. I am not trying to be the girl that is dating 'whoever'. The thing is, you are a girl you are in love and you want to show off - but, you can't."
