DJ Zinhle celebrates ‘Umlilo’ going 3x platinum


Local producer and entrepreneur DJ Zinhle celebrated her hit single “Umlilo” being certified triple platinum.

The “My Name Is” star was celebrating the discharge of her new single ”Indlovo” with former “Idols SA“ contestant Loyiso Gijana at Pablo House, Melville, in Johannesburg.

DJ Zinhle was also presented with a plaque from the Universal Music Group SA certifying her 2019 hit “Umlilo“ as triple platinum.

Taking to her Instagram page, DJ Zinhle celebrated this milestone on Wednesday, captioning the post: “How does one celebrate the very fact that #umlilo may be a certified TRIPLE PLATINUM single?

“You celebrate the @boulevard.rose way.

“Thank you all especially @rethabile_rsa @mvzzle_sa. Sending like to @kalawajazmeerecords, @oskidoibelieve & @umgsa.”


The Universal Music Group’s official Instagram page also celebrated this achievement.

“Our tremendous #WCW for in the week – @djzinhle is back with an exceptional release titled “Indlovu” featuring @lloyiso_rsa.”


Last week DJ Zinhle dropped her new summer banger “Indlovu”. Talking about what the song means to her and about working with Loyiso, she said: “For me, the song is about hope and not abandoning. It’s a timely message because the world goes through uncertainty, and Loyiso delivers this message of hope in a gentle and impactful way. I couldn’t have chosen a far better vocalist and talent for this single. Loyiso may be a force and together we were ready to create magic.”

Loyiso said: “I wrote this song with the thought of instilling faith in myself at this difficult time in my life and to offer myself hope which will be administered to the remainder of the planet.

“I knew the instant I sent Sis Zee (DJ Zinhle) the thought she would take it to the subsequent level and she or he added a neighborhood of herself … that creates this song even more special to me.”

He added: “The reason why “Indlovu” may be a big a part of my life is that the animal pours out characteristics of resilience, patience, and ambition and in fact, my clan name being Indlovu makes it more special.”
