This is not the first tattoo by Nadia to garner attention. This is as back in 2022, she and her late lover set tongues wagging when they got matching tattoos. As reported at the time:
During his recent interview with Drum magazine, AKA confessed his undying love for Nadia Nadia. Even though he has been attached to the big names like Bonang Matheba, and DJ Zinhle, AKA gushes over his new love with Nadia Nakai as a breath of fresh air.
“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, ” AKA was quoted on Drum Magazine.
AKA continued to mention that music has played a huge role in complimenting their relationship,
“Music always unites us. Both of us being both artists complement our relationship,” added AKA.
As such, it seems that things are getting more serious between lovebirds Nadia Nakai and AKA following the pair getting similar tattoos. Picture of the couple making rounds on social media while getting inked has gotten tweeps talking ‘negatively’ already.
An account belonging to Thembisile_Q shared pictures of both AKA and Nadia Nakai getting tattooed at the parlor. However, that has gotten tweeps inserting negative opinions and comments.
