The multi-talented presenter took to Instagram stories to reveal how DJ Shimza hurt her. “Thank you for breaking me…” K Naomi wrote on her Instagram account.

She continued with a series of posts addressing Shimza, in which she thanked him for showing her how much she can love.

K Naomi also went on to post a screenshot of an email DJ Shimza sent her in August in an effort to win her back.

Both Naomi and Shimza have been denying reports of their romantic relationship. The rumour started last year after Daily Sun reported that the pair were dating and K Naomi was still in a relationship with fellow model Lunga Tshabalala.

“Naomi and I are not dating. She supports my career and even comes to my shows – like everyone else who supports me. She’s grown to be a very good friend because we’re in a similar industry,” – Shimza told SunTeam last year August.

At the time, Shimza was reportedly dating president Ramaphosa’s social media manager Athi Geleba, who he reportedly cheated on with K Naomi and social media influencer Kamo Modisakeng.

Bonginkosi “Zola” Dlamini pulls out as host for Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards

Bonginkosi “Zola” Dlamini

The road to the 3rd annual Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards has been one of many trials and tribulations. One of which was the announcement of radio and tv personality, Bonginkosi Dlamini aka Zola as the host on the 24th of November.

ALSO READ: The 2018 Mzansi Kwaito & House Music Awards Nominees Revealed

Sadly though, the Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards would like to announce that Zola has pulled out as our host for the night and we unfortunately have to find his replacement despite paying him his deposit and later having him signing a contract we had already agreed to.

We are disappointed that one of our most loved Kwaito artist has made this decision without informing MKHMA management of the reason behind him having cold feet so close to our main event which will be hosted at the Top Arena in Carnival City but have decided not to take legal action against the Kwaito star as he is one of our own and we as the Mzansi Kwaito and House Music Awards will always support our local artists. “As disappointing as it is, Life goes on. I don’t hold grudges and May the Lord I serve bless him. We are ready for the 24th of November and we will be announcing our host soon” says MKHMA Founder and CEO, Perfecta Khumalo.
