Nadia Nakai Is Waiting On The Critics

The biggest names in hip hop, the female rapper Nadia Nakai has had her fair share of hate from social media but says she is already anticipating the hate (and the love) for her new album sure to drop later this month.


She showed her own disapproving eye at the hardships of being in the entertainment industry.

However, her fans have been waiting for the album to drop for what felt like forever and after Nakai had put a hold on it due to delays, the album Nadia Naked will finally reveal all (pun intentional).

Although Nadia is excited about new music after a three-year hiatus, she said the experimental and pan-African elements that she has on this album will definitely get the people of the South talking. 

"I think that my sound has matured in the sense that I am embracing my African roots. This album will touch on my Zimbabwean heritage. Although I don't speak Shona very well, I sing in Shona on one of the choruses. I want to show that side of me, but I also know that people may think they are experts and say things about it," she told TshisaLive.

We're happy to see that she welcomes the critiques-unsolicited or otherwise, Nadia knows better than to take it on the chin. In fact, Nadia says although she is expecting a lot of conversation about it, she won't be too bothered by it and said she can live happy knowing she is making music that she can be proud of. 

Yaas queen.

The countdown leaves us with 10 more days left to cop the album and alongside some of her male rapper friends ala Cassper Nyovest, we cannot wait for the new sound.
