Whether you like it or not, agree with it or not, hate her or adore her, there’s something that everybody will most definitely agree with which is Nadia Nakai has had a tremendous year in 2019.
She not only solidified her name as one of the best female rappers to ever do it in South Africa but also in Africa.
In 2019, Nadia Nakai surpassed her own plateau which she set for herself because of her hard work. I mean she not only bodied the rap game in the country, she also managed to juggle around the music world with her apparel business Nadia Nakai X Redbat that brought forth some of the best merchandise you’ve ever seen a rapper putting out in recent years.
The rapper also got to release one of the best master pieces of musical art in her album ‘Nadia Naked’ that has earned her a spot in the upper echelons of rap music, not only in South Africa but across Africa, even the legendary rap connoisseur Sway Calloways has her on his cross heirs as one of the best rappers thus far, period.
It looks like telling you about Nadia Nakai’s accomplishments of 2019 might bore you because this article might turn into a book with nothing but her accomplishments of 2019.
Don’t worry though, we will exclusively cover all her accomplishments on a rejoinder to this piece but for now, let’s see how many magazine covers she graced in 2019.
Remember she once rapped “magazine covers we the issue”, well, she might have had a premonition of what was going to go down in the future because, in 2019, she has graced a whole lot of magazine covers looking beautiful than the next one.
Nadia Nakai is nothing short of a living, breathing, African goddess with a body to die for, I honestly believe Cleopatra would have been jealous of her alluring, beauty if she knew her.
At the time of this article getting published its key to note that Nadia Nakai is already gracing the magazine cover for Cosmopolitan Finland in the January 2020 issue. Talk of moves!
“Sometimes you can get so caught up with what’s going on around you, that you actually forget WHO YOU ARE, and how big your REACH really is!!!!! Thank you @cosmofinland for putting ME as your January 2020 cover! I’m so proud of this cover! The fact that it’s crossed borders is such a blessing!!!! I’m so excited and happy! Thank you to @cosmopolitansa for such an iconic cover!!!!!! Here’s to breaking more barriers for African HipHop in 2020!” Nadia Nakai on getting featured as the cover for Cosmopolitan Finland magazine.
Below are the magazines covers the winner of AFRIMA’s ‘Best Female Artiste’, ‘Best Artiste, Duo or Group in African Hip Hop’ and South African Hip-Hop Awards 2019’s ‘Best Female’ Nadia Nakai graced in 2019 alone.
Nadia Nakai proudly graced two big magazines in South Africa; Cosmopolitan and Mans Magazine which saw her become not only become the first female rapper but the third woman to ever grace the latter magazine after Beyoncé, and Bonang.
