DJ Zinhle has joined the chorus of congratulations for rapper AKA after the Supa Mega finally let fans in on his shoe deal with Reebok this week.

The rapper has BEEN teasing a collab, even flying out to Reebok HQ in the US earlier this year, and on Tuesday posted an image of shoes bearing his nickname Supa Mega.

He announced that the shoe collab will drop on October 26 and dubbed it the "SneAKA".

AKA first announced his endorsement deal with Reebok in 2017, claiming to have signed a "seven-figure" deal with the sport's brand.

Nadia Nakai will also be dropping a range with the brand in hope of showcasing "the individuality of the classic tennis style with retro flair".

And the cost?

The shoes will cost R1,300 a pop, so you better start saving or pray for a Christmas bonus.

Fans were going crazy over the announcement and soon #TheSneAKA was trending on Twitter.

DJ Zinhle was one of the those who hit the TLs to congratulate her bae, posting the announcement alongside the words “Congratulations, daddy.”

She sealed the message with a kiss emoji.

Fans were all here for the loved-up message, retweeting the post over 750 times with 8,000 users liking it.

Their relationship has constantly hit the headlines but Zinhle is not bothered and told  Enhle Mbali on her podcast, Sincerely Yours by Enhle, that she's happy with her decision to reconcile with her baby's daddy.

“I don’t rob myself of things that I want and can acquire. The decision to be with the father of my child has nothing to do with my child. It sounds pompous when I say I acquire the things I want, and I don’t rob myself of things that I will question later. If there is an opportunity for me and someone to reconcile, and if I feel I want it, I will take a chance, because I don’t want to question myself four years later.”
