Female Mzansi rapper Nadia Nakai has opened up about her tribute project to her late boyfriend, AKA, and called it her “letter to him.”
On February 10 this year, Mzansi received the most heartbreaking news. AKA was shot dead while leaving a birthday dinner at a restaurant in Durban. He was shot alongside his best friends. The star’s family and girlfriend, Nadia Nakai, were left to mourn his passing.
Months after, Mzansi watched Nakai immerse herself in her work and also put out music while living every day, trying to get over the news. While she has had a lot of success this year, the rap star has also made a project in honour of her late boyfriend. She opened up about the album in a post on her Instagram page. She wrote,
“My Tribute EP that has now become a tribute ALBUM! because I have soooo much to say, is almost done. I’m so grateful I have music to express myself, this album is honestly not for you, it’s for me, in my road to healing (whatever that looks like), my letter to him this is powerful, this is spiritual. THANK YOU to everyone who just gets it! Supported it, and showed up! I wish I could drop this tomorrow.”
