DJ Zinhle sets an example for mothers with careers. Zinhle has cemented herself as one of the leading DJs in the country but away from the decks, her daughter Kairo is at the top of her list of priorities.
Zinhle has become the poster girl for balancing a successful music career with being a supermom, something she tells TshisaLIVE doesn’t come that easy. She said that while Kairo gets more and more independent by the day, she has learned the value of communicating and spending time with her.
“I just realize how independent she is but also that I need to prioritize time with her. She is growing so quickly and I don’t want to miss out on teaching her valuable lessons because I suddenly got busy and didn’t make time for her. When I am at home, we play and talk and that is time dedicated for her.”
Zinhle said that juggling her roles is a challenge but she wanted to break the belief that when a woman has a child her career stops. “I want to show that you can be a DJ or a superstar and a mom, but sometimes it isn’t easy. It is not easy.
It is one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do. But I find that you have to be true to yourself. You have to believe in not only your talent but also your decisions, whether it is to go to a gig or to stay at home with your daughter.”
“It goes back to priority. You need to prioritize time with your child but also believe in yourself and believe that you can still reach your dreams.”
Zinhle hosted fabulous this event in celebration of her boujee abode. Pearl Thusi, Zinhle’s momma, and SA singer, Busiswa, were just some of the special people who attended. The house is absolutely beautiful and she has every right to be proud.
