Nadia Nakai’s is one of the “baddest” female rappers in Africa. But as anyone who as in Bulawayo earlier this year knows, she is proud of her Zimbabwean roots. After the show, she chatted with Standard Style and told them:

"I always feel the love and I appreciate it, I will never forget where I come from." 

In South Africa, many  had not heard of the name Nakai until Nadia came along. nor did they know it means “be beautiful” in Shona. Nadia is also known as Bragga, which is the title of her 2016 EP.  She got the inspiration for the name from a character in one of the Fast & Furious movies.

She does love her rides.

"Spent a milli on my bus and my Audi," Nadia raps on Naaa Mean. Like most entertainers, Nadia has spent her hard-earned cash on fancy cars. She bought herself a white Audi A3 as a Valentine’s Day gift to herself in 2017. Nadia also owns a mini-tour bus to make getting from gig to gig a whole lot easier.
