DJ Zinhle answers deeply personal questions about her money

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

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.

DJ Zinhle

Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays, Personal Edition” feature.

This week Whitfield interviewed DJ Zinhle, famous for being one of South Africa’s few superstar female deejays.

Did you know that she was criticised and teased when she first became a DJ?

  • But what is it that she believes about money?

  • Does it keep her up at night?

  • Does she spend like crazy, or save compulsively?

  • How did her childhood experiences shape her views on money?

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

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…

DJ Zinhle

That job [Jikamajika]… made everything official!

DJ Zinhle

My mom hated it when people gave us money… She would force us to return it! It still affects me now…

DJ Zinhle

I didn’t feel any money pressure. I didn’t feel we were short. But I did know there were families better off than us. We were OK.

DJ Zinhle

When I was at UJ I worked at Makro promoting Vanish. I was terrible! I was so bad! I was very reserved; I was shy. I only sold to people who were buying the product anyway.

DJ Zinhle

I’m working very hard on other business interests… so that I have other streams of income…

DJ Zinhle

I don’t spend money on my child. I spend money on the things she really needs… I’m not crazy about buying her clothes, or a lot of toys…

DJ Zinhle

Family are always asking for money…

DJ Zinhle

Expensive is a relative word… Half the stuff you see out there is not even true!

DJ Zinhle
