It’s a heartbreaking moment when a child misses their late parent, and that’s exactly what DJ Zinhle’s daughter, Kairo Forbes, is going through.
The eight-year-old kidfluencer was recently captured on video being comforted by her mother, DJ Zinhle, as she expressed her longing for her late father, the renowned rapper AKA.
The video, shared by Twitter user @MDNnewss, shows DJ Zinhle consoling Kairo as she sheds tears over the absence of her father. The caption accompanying the clip reads, “You will never understand the pain in my heart when my child is crying because she’s missing her dad. God help us.”
As the video went viral, it sparked a wave of reactions from social media users. Some expressed their sympathy for Kairo and DJ Zinhle, while others questioned the authenticity of the emotional moment.
One user, @Owomthetho, voiced their scepticism, saying, “So, I’m just imagining this!! The child started crying and told her mom she missed her dad, and the mom quickly set up a video or asked someone to take a video and then started comforting her child. Hey akunzima.”
Another user, @thato0202, pointed out that the caption accompanying the video was unrelated to the actual content, stating, “The caption is what Zinhle said on her reality show, it is not related to this video, and you can see Kairo is not crying in this video!”

While opinions may differ, it is important to remember that grief is a deeply personal experience, especially for a child who has lost a parent. It is not uncommon for children to feel a sense of longing and sadness for their late loved ones, even years after their passing.
As for DJ Zinhle, she has been open about her journey of losing AKA and the challenges she faces in raising Kairo without her father’s presence. In a world where social media often magnifies and distorts reality, it is crucial to approach such sensitive topics with empathy and understanding.
Regardless of the opinions shared on social media, the video serves as a reminder that grief knows no bounds and that even in the midst of fame and success, there are moments of vulnerability and sorrow.
