Whether it be her romantic relationship or her embarking on a business venture, DJ Zinhle made the social media trends list on several occasions last year.

Here's a look at five of those times DJ Zinhle stopped traffic on the internet:

Baby number two!

As DJ Zinhle avoided taking pictures showing her tummy, speculation about her being pregnant with her second baby circulated on social mediauntil she later confirmed the news with her reality TV show.

DJ Zinhle is a mother to her first daughter Kairo, who she co-parents with rapper AKA, and her second daughter with her boyfriend, Murdah Bongz of Black Motion.

“This is the last one. That's for sure. It just takes so long to make a baby.  If it took a shorter period maybe I'd have another one but I think I'm done. This is it for me.”

Her unexpected reality TV show

From DJ Zinhle's relationship with Black Motion's Murdah Bongz, expanding her family, her close-knit friendship with actress Pearl Thusi and rapper Moozlie, fans have been itching to see more of her private life.

She finally gave them a front-row seat with her reality show on BET The Unexpected.

“It was weird just because we were trying to keep it a secret for a long time and we didn't do that just for the show, we just did that because I thought I couldn't handle talking to people about this pregnancy.”

CEO of a liquor brand

DJ Zinhle had many social media users gushing when she became the CEO of a French sparkling wine brand Boulevard Nectar Rosé.

“My team and I work really hard, words can’t describe this moment. Our hard work never went unnoticed. God really is the greatest,” Zinhle announced on Twitter.

Wig range

DJ Zinhle ventured into the hair market launching her wig range Hair Majesty by DJ Zinhle.

“I am so overwhelmed by your love and positive responses. The song My Name Is ft @busiswaah, which I released in 2012, has come full circle to magnify another big move for me. Her Majesty, the Queen. Royal Highness. I bring you Hair Majesty by DJ Zinhle,”
