Being mom and daughter is one thing, but being business partners is a whole ball game for this star duo.

DJ and entrepreneur Zinhle Jiyane, known and loved as DJ Zinhle, recently announced her collaborative project with her five-year-old daughter Kairo.

Her accessories business Era By DJ Zinhle just dropped Kairo Sunglasses and they describe them as “cool kids wear.”

Not only are the specs super stylish, they also help protect kids’ eyes from harmful blue light emitted by cell phones, TVs, laptops and other electronic devices.

Some were inspired, like one user who said “I aspire to set my children up for success as you have.”

Kairo is no stranger to the limelight and has been a household name for some time. Both J Zinhle and AKA have been intentional about building the Kairo Forbes brand. This is so important, that even Kairo’s dog’s Instagram has more followers most people.
