DJ Zinhle’s hit ‘Umlilo’ makes it into a fiery church sermon


It’s not every day that a club banger makes it to church. But DJ Zinhle’s hit Umlilo became a point of reference during a church sermon recently.

In a video clip that is doing the rounds on social media, a woman is preaching and in her fiery sermon she quotes the lyrics of the song which features Mvzzle and Rethabile.

Zinhle has seen the sermon and shared the clip on her social media.

“Some people don’t listen to what it is that DJ Zinhle is actually saying this song. They are busy focusing on the rhythm of the song. We say here the fire of heaven is burning,” the woman who is dressed in her church uniform says.

The preacher goes as far as to emphasise her point, saying that the song makes so much sense because the DJ has been through a lot.

This in reference to her on-and-off relationship with rapper AKA who is the father of their toddler Kairo Forbes.

Almost four years ago, AKA left the DJ while she was pregnant with their child for media personality Bonang Matheba. Nonetheless, the pair kept on co-parenting their little girl.

“After a great deal of thought, reflection and discussion we have decided to end our relationship of three years. We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it," Zinhle said in her blog.

Zinhle found love in the arms of wealthy businessman Brendon Naidoo. But it ended after Brandon was charged with fraud. He was accused of defrauding pensioners out of millions of rands through his forex trading business.

When AKA and Bonang’s relationship came to a bitter end, with the rapper accusing Bonang of allegedly trying to bewitch him.  AKA and Zinhle gradually got back into each other’s arm once again.

Even though they initially denied, they were spotted cosying up to each other events. However, they eventually let the cat out of the bag and dated publicly again.

Recently things have gone south again for the pair and they’ve been mum about their reasons for the split.

Speaking during an interview on Metro FM AKA confirmed his relationship status to the show’s hosts, DJs Sphectacular and Naves, he is once again a single man.

Shortly after he was spotted locking lips with another woman. Zinhle on the other hand went on holiday with her best friend Pearl Thusi.
