The rapper made the comments during a candid interview on Real Talk with Anele.
“Zinhle was… is a great woman. A strong woman. A great mother. I was too stupid and too young to even recognise that and even see that,” he told Anele
Zinhlel revealed in a 2015 blog that AKA cheated on her with Bonang Matheba while she was pregnant with their daughter Kairo. Both AKA and Bonang denied the claims, and Queen B even threatened to sue, but several months later, the pair were pictured together.
Now for the first time, AKA is coming clean about his cheating ways.
“The start of my relationship was painful because at the time I was in a relationship with my baby mamma. And she was pregnant. And for me, what we put her through was wrong.
“I’ve apologised for that and I’m sorry for that,” he admitted.
The Congratulate hitmaker added that he hopes Bonang “will apologise for it one day as well.”
AKA also addressed his recent break-up with Bonang.
“There are some things I want to talk about, in terms of the insides of our relationship. But I would be less of a man if I said and explained everything. I’m taking it one day at a time. I got my daughter. I got my music. I got my friends. I got my health. I got my family. I got my money.”
Twitter users were shocked that AKA finally admitted the truth, and some applauded him for manning up.
Take a look at the social media reaction from the interview.
