One of Mzanzi’s hottest couples are in the headlines again with AKA confirming the split from girlfriend DJ Zinhle.
AKA confirmed the rumour in an interview on Metro FM on Wednesday afternoon, telling DJs Sphectacula and Naves that he went on holiday “as a single man” for the first time in years.
“It’s been a crazy start to the year, I had to go away. I went on holiday. I was just speaking off-air that I went on a very cold holiday. As people might have noticed it’s my first holiday being a single man for many, many years,” he said.
Twitter immediately went into a frenzy. Here are a few tweets about the situation.

Another topic on the social media streets is the topic of “ghosting”. Ghosting is the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication.
Tweeps put in their two cents on the topic and some the results although sad made us laugh.

There are angles to this #ghosting thing. For instance, there’s absolutely no need to announce your departure from someone’s life who’s emotionally abusive, controlling and a bully. But you guys don’t know you possess these traits until it’s done to you cos you don’t introspect.
