One year later, things are looking up for Zinhle, following a very rough public break-up, she's once again in a good head space and her star is shining brighter than ever

Speaking to the Sowetan, Zinhle spoke on how things have been since the break up and what she went through to get to where she is now. "Last year was tough for me. But I gave "that" a year. I was just like, after a year it is over and I'm starting afresh. The highest goal for me is always happiness. I spent a whole year working on myself, my healing and just finding myself again," Zinhle says.

She said that one of her friends gave her some very good advice, which made quite an impression. "I had a very powerful conversation with my friend, where I told her that I keep meeting people, but I keep meeting the wrong person. She advised that I just stop and become the person that I want to meet. If you want someone that is kind to you then you need to become that person to yourself first and you will attract that person," Zinhle says.

"I did that 100% person. So I told myself how beautiful I was and how much I loved myself, all that kind of stuff because we can be so unkind to ourselves. I was also open to meeting someone amazing. I gave myself time and when I met him it was instant. I was just like 'this is my guy'. I have probably seen him every day since then. He is ease of life, kind, happiness and amazing."She is the proud mother of 14-month-old daughter Kairo Owethu Forbes whose father is rapper AKA. She relies on her great team to assist her as she juggles motherhood and her successful career that sees her on the road a lot.

Zinhle also touched on motherhood and the blessing it turned out to be. "I respect mothers so much. I have one child and I don't know how my mother raised four kids. I have no idea how anyone has more than one child and they do it with so much grace. I have a lot of help with Kairo and there are mothers who are doing it full time. Motherhood is a whole new world - such a blessing."

She went on to speak on more children, she says it's too soon to know for sure if she'll have more, but she's not saying she won't have more. "I think it's a bit too soon for me to decide if I can have another one. Time will tell."
