South African musician Murdah Bongz, whose real name is Robert Mohosana, recently found himself at the center of a social media storm. This came after he posted a video of a video call with his wife, Ntombezinhle “DJ Zinhle” Jiyane, their daughter Asante Mohosana, and Lynn Forbes, the mother of Kiernan “AKA” Forbes. The controversy arose when Murdah offered to pay for a lunch date involving his wife, daughter, and AKA’s Mom’s.
The Video Call Incident
In the video posted by Bongz, he is seen chatting with his wife and daughter during what appears to be a lunch date with Lynn Forbes. After conversing with his family, Murdah turns to AKA’s Mom’s and offers to pay the bill for their meal. This gesture did not sit well with some social media users who accused him of neglecting his own mother.

The relationship between Murdah Bongz and DJ Zinhle has been under intense scrutiny by social media users since the passing of local rapper AKA. Only a few weeks after AKA’s passing, many accused Zinhle of disrespecting her husband by mourning her ex-boyfriend and father of her first child. Now, months later, they are criticizing Bongz for welcoming AKA’s mother into his family and offering to pay for her meal during a day out with Zinhle.
Supporters Defend Bongz
Despite the criticism, some social media users have come to Bongz’s defense. They argue that it isn’t anyone’s business how he chooses to spend his money or who he chooses to spend it on. Some have even suggested that those criticizing Bongz should contribute financially to his family if they are so concerned about his spending habits.
