“Women are so apologetic about making money. We need to get to the point where we are like, ‘We want this big money’,” – DJ Zinhle said in an interview.

She went on to say “If you look at the era of your Basetsana’s, your Connie Ferguson’s, you soon realise that the ladies who are still relevant now are the ladies who diversified their portfolios. They went into business.”

Speaking of music, Zinhle told Bruce that her brother was the one who was interested in music while she was still furthering her studies at the University of Johannesburg.

“My brother is the one that had an interest in music… I was at UJ for three years, never went to a club… I was just a nerd… I always kept to myself…”
