While waiting for his summer smash hit ‘Lemons (Lemonade)’ to rise to the top of the South African streaming and radio charts, finally surpassing K.O., Young Stunna, and Blxckie’s ‘Sete’ to claim the top spot, another milestone is around the corner for Kiernan as he and his girlfriend Nadia Nakai approach their one year anniversary.
The couple has been together since October last year, the relationship between both rappers came as a shock to many as Nadia Nakai achieved fame under the umbrella of Cassper Nyovest’s Family Tree Entertainment.
Cassper and AKA have been archrivals for the most part of their careers and it was quite awkward to fans that the first lady of Family Tree Nadia, would not only get involved with the enemy camp, let alone find love in the arms of Cassper’s arch-enemy immediately after her departure from Nyovest’s label.
Prior to dating Kiernan, Nadia was involved with Chicago, Illinois rapper Vic Mensa, during the South African stop of his African tour. The two dated for about two months before Mensa moved back to the states and there went yet another relationship for Bragga.
AKA on the other hand went through a sad phase as he lost his fiance and then soon-to-be wife on 11 April 2021. Anele ‘Nellie’ Tembe accidentally fell off a 1oth floor balcony and died just weeks before the wedding.
“I am in a fantastic place. Love is in the air. Nadia and I have been together for about a year and just enjoying each other,” said AKA. The award-winning rapper also stated that their relationship is set in stone because of music.
AKA said that music unites them the most as they are able to complement each other in their day-to-day work.
“Music always unites us. Both of us being both artists complement our relationship.” When it comes to music, AKA has been on a roll recently.
Following the release of Lemons (Lemonade) featuring Nasty C, AKA reminded the South African hip-hop community of what he is capable of after a brief absence from the scene. The rapper stated that he is excited about how the song has gained momentum in the game since it has become one of the most popular songs.
“Lemons (Lemonade) is arguably one of the most popular songs. Things are going well, it’s gaining momentum and I’m excited.” He said.
The rapper admitted that he is currently having a good time with music and the whole energy in hip-hop music.
“I’m feeling a brand-new breath of fresh air in the game, in hip-hop, music, and just my life in general,” during his interview with DRUM Magazine.
