Bafana Bafana icon Siphiwe Tshabalala has earned legendary status in Mzansi due to his exploits with Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana.
However, it seems Shabba's talents aren't reserved for the football pitch, as he can now add the role of writer to his long list of talents.
The footballing star recently launched his own children's comic book, titled 'Super Shabba'.
The great news for South Africans is that the book will be available in four different languages - Sesotho, isiZulu, Setswana & English.
Television host Phil Mphela shared the news via Twitter on Friday and it's started to trend.

Briefly.co.za noted some of the positive comments.
Smilo Gosa (@SlimGosa) said,
"A welcome addition since the long franchised Supa Strikers. Well deserved."
SENAOANE DEEP (@waxmus) added,
"Nice One Bafo"
TEBOGO (@T_Sasebola) said,
"Him and his wife really found a market there by the kids section, even clothes... Congratulations."
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that Shabba made a name for himself with Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and played in Europe, but he'll arguably be most fondly remembered for his iconic goal at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Although the goal was a thing of beauty and the strike was supreme, Shabba revealed the uncertainty that preceded the tournament.
