Nadia Nakai’s close relationship with Cassper Nyovest led some to believe he is her boyfriend. But she described the rapper as “family” and nothing more.

Nadia was most recently linked to Major League’s Bandile Mbere. The couple confirmed they were dating in early 2018 but by early 2019 they had gone their separate ways. More Drugs, one of the songs on her debut album, was inspired by her heartache over the breakup.

Nadia poured her energy into the album after their split and has seemingly had little to no time for dating.

Nadia begun to look very cozy with rapper Vic Mensa, leading many to speculate they were dating.

She is presently rumored to be dating rapper AKA who lost his fiancee Nelli eight months ago.


“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.


Although she is relatively lowkey, even Nadia has had her fair share of drama. In 2021, she got dragged into the long-running beef between Cassper Nyovest and AKA. It was revealed that she was the reason the two started beefing.Apparently, AKA’s decision to leave her out of the remix of Baddest in 2015 had been perceived as malicious by both Nadia and Cassper. This led Cassper to take an active interest in Nadia’s career, and is part of the reason that he doesn’t like AKA to date.

Nadia also got dragged for homophobic tweets. In the wake of Boity Thulo’s homophobic tweets surfacing, Tweeps also dug up Nadia’s tweets from 2010 that were homophobic.

She defended herself saying she was younger then, but many fans were unimpressed with her “apology”.

Hai guys pulling tweets from 2010? I was childish cos I was a child!! I'm sorry if they offended you 🙏🏽. It just further shows how people on these twitter streets don't know me and my heart. ❤️

However, it seems like the extensive dragging had no effect, as Nadia did not respond any further.
