Taking to Instagram, Nadia Nakai who is passionately known by her fans as Bragga talked about how she used to read the Hype Magazine back in the day when she was still in University and how fellow rapper MsSupa inspired her to dream about gracing the Hype Magazine cover one day after she saw her on the cover of the coveted magazine.
” I remember in varsity I would run to the main entrance to get my copy of Hype Magazine before they were all out!!! I’d go thru it and be inspired by all the Hip-hop musicians making major moves!!! SUPA’s cover was my fav! being the FIRST female ever! @mssupa you don’t know how much your hype cover inspired me! You made it possible for me to dream of making the cover one day!
