Nakai has been spending time with Kairo, who is the daughter of AKA and Zinhle, and shared a video on March 12 of the two playing with a filter on Instagram.

Despite the tragedy, it is heartening to see that the co-parenting relationship between DJ Zinhle and AKA remained strong. Their willingness to put their differences aside and prioritize Kairo’s well-being is a testament to their love for their daughter and their commitment to being good parents. The gift from DJ Zinhle and Kairo to Nakai is a touching reminder of the bond between the families and the importance of supporting each other in times of grief.
