It seems that AKA has not fully let go of how his Reebok deal ended, despite announcing it had been scrapped earlier in the year. The artist took to Twitter to air some grievances he clearly still had with the brand and chat to his followers about it.
Supa Mega tweeted out that Reebok has continually used his sneaker designs in articles and advertising despite not paying him royalties. He started out the rant by tweeting out an anniversary post to his "SNEAKA" designs which dropped a year ago on 26 October 2019.
When AKA got asked by a tweep why he doesn't pursue legal action, the rapper replied that the justice system was not what he wanted. Instead, Supa Mega said he wanted his fans to know that "their brand is wack."
AKA's followers were pretty divided on the subject. Some of them supported the rapper and said the brand had done him wrong. Others were of the opinion that there was more to the story and that the sneakers themselves were not worth the hype.
@AkemPrincee: "Keep on pushing super mega"
@MosothoEzekiel: "Honestly there is nothing wow about this sneaka"
@Tshepiso_miya: "It was a moment for the culture man despite it all."
