Hot hunks loving DJ damsels

2012-09-01 17:33

Spring is bringing sunshine and new life to Egoliwood, and it looks like it’s going to be a summer of love for our celebrities.

Hot disc jockeys Zinhle Jiyane (29) and Poppy Ntshongwana (28) have bagged themselves Jozi’s sexiest hunks in award-winning rapper AKA (23) and MTVBase’s Sizwe Dhlomo (29) respectively.

DJ Zinhle, whose hit My Name Is is burning up the dance charts, has been secretly dating AKA (real name Kiernan Forbes) for about five months – and it looks serious.

The music-loving couple have kept things on the down low, but close friends say they are definitely into each other.

“Zinhle and AKA definitely hang out together, it just might not be in public but they do behind closed doors and they are so in love,” said the friend.

As for Ntshongwana and Dhlomo, the romance was ignited recently after a long friendship.

The two belong to a celebrity clique known as the Fourways Mafia.

Friends of Ntshongwana are ecstatic that she has found love after the end of her romance with fellow DJ, Milkshake.

“Poppy had a hard time dealing with her break-up with Milkshake, but she is so over that now. She is a girl in love now,” said her friend.

The couple were recently seen looking cosy at a mutual friend’s birthday party held at Dhlomo’s Cappello restaurant in Fourways.

“You should hear her talking about Sizwe.

It’s ‘my man this and my man that’ all the time,” added our spy.

The young stars’ romances will be welcome relief to celebrity watchers who have witnessed bad romances and break ups this winter, such as Bonang Matheba and DJ Euphonik, Sophie Ndaba and “husband” Keith Harrington and socialite Uyanda Mbuli and husband Sisa.

A coy DJ Zinhle was reluctant to talk about her new love, saying she is “absolutely single”.

“The rumour about AKA and I is untrue,” she said.

AKA, who is famous for his big ego and diva antics, is said to prefer his women to be a certain way.

“Haven’t you noticed how Zinhle always has her hair in place and is always in heels?

That’s because that is what AKA loves about his women.

He also insists that his women should check in if they do go out or are working late,” said the source.

And, like any seasoned celebrity, Ntshongwana fell back on the tried and tested line of “I don’t talk about my love life”, while Dhlomo laughed, saying “I’m always linked to a girl every week but I’ll never tell who I’m with.”
Whatever, guys!
