Nadia Nakai is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the South African Hip Hop scene. Most of us started knowing about her after she got signed by Cassper Nyovest to his record label, Family Tree. However, Nadia has been around for a minute now and we’re happy she’s starting to get the recognition she deserves.
She’s been dubbed Mzansi’s Nicki Minaj thanks to her daring dress sense and love of bright wigs, but Nadia Nakai is more than just sass. The Money Calling rap queen, who takes on the role of royalty in the music video of her latest song, also oozes sophistication.
The 29-year-old recently cemented herself as a fashion force to be reckoned with when she sashayed onto the red carpet at the SAMAs in a stunning sheer floor-length gown.
The funky femcee lets us in on her style secrets.
My style is… sexy, unapologetic and trendy! I always need to look good and I’m fearless in my approach to fashion. I had some questionable looks back in the day when I was young and experimenting with clothes, but I think I’ve found a style I’m comfortable with.
I’m inspired by… Rihanna and Kim Kardashian West – their styles are different, but they appeal to me. Kim’s style is more mature, elegant at times, but very clean. Rihanna is a trendsetter. She’s daring and isn’t afraid to experiment and show some skin, even with her weight gain.
My colourful wigs… can change any outfit. I have wigs in almost every colour of the rainbow!
My celebrity crush is… [rapper] The Game. Everyone who knows me knows about my crush on him. He’s funny, he’s street and good-looking. The Game is my ideal guy – gangster, sexy, suave and unapologetic.
