Rapper Nadia Nakai is head over heels in love with her musician boyfriend AKA and hopes that one day they can start a family of their own.
While the couple's romance has been heating up in the past few months, they have known each other for years before they started dating.
AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, has in the past been romantically linked to baby mama DJ Zinhle, TV personality Bonang Matheba, social media influencer Nicole Nyaba and his late fiancée Anele “Nellie” Tembe.
“I’ve known Kiernan for years. He was respectful every time I’d meet him. We never had personal issues and obviously out of the respect for my label boss, I would refrain from socialising too much with him,” Nakai told Sowetan.
“There wasn’t a specific time that we told ourselves we were an official couple because we were just really good friends. We’d speak for long hours over the phone and share so much in common.
“We didn’t plan to become a couple, it just happened... I’ve witnessed how great he is as a father; of course, I’d love to have his babies one day.”
Nakai admitted to Sowetan that they avoided making a public announcement as an official couple to protect her mental health from negative comments and bullying from social media
“For my mental health, I’ve decided to be less activate on social media, particularly Twitter… there’s a lot of hate and negativity there. But the person who has given me solace is Kiernan who’s been holding me through this whole experience," she said.
