AKA shared the exciting news on social media, posting snaps of himself accompanied by a group of men who appeared to his lobola delegation.

A month later, the star has paid lobola and the couple are preparing to walk down the aisle.

In May 2020, following rumours of the rapper’s new love interest, AKA told his fans that for the first time in more than a decade he is enjoying every moment of dating a woman who isn’t a celebrity, making it clear that his girlfriend is incredibly private.

Even after she started dating one of Mzansi’s biggest rappers, Tembe’s Instagram profile has remained private, with just over 7k followers.
