Nadia Nakai, the sultry rapper, had her first brush with a celebrity romance with none other than the chiselled crooner, Dotcom.

Their love affair was anything but low-key, with the duo sharing affectionate posts of each other on social media for all to see.

Speaking to Slikouronlife in 2016, Nadia spilled the beans on her split with Dotcom. Contrary to the rumours that infidelity had brought the curtains down on their relationship, Nadia clarified that they parted ways amicably, with both wanting to channel their energies towards their respective careers.


“It’s not like we broke up because of a girl or a guy, or whatever the case is. It was kind of a mutual thing to focus on our own things,” Nadia Nakai said at the time.

She expressed hope for a reunion in the future once they had both achieved their respective goals.

Back when rumours were circulating that Nadia Nakai, then signed to Family Tree, and her label boss Cassper Nyovest were dating, one of the Major League DJz members, Bandile Mbere, stepped forward to set the record straight.

Although Nadia was keen on keeping her romantic life private, in 2020, Bandile revealed that they had been in a relationship for almost a year, stating: “Yes, we’re dating. It’s been almost a year now. We just wanted to clear up all the speculation.”

Bandile Mbere sang the praises of Nadia Nakai, dishing on how their professional collaboration turned into a steamy romance.

Sadly, the love flame fizzled out in 2021, leaving Nadia nursing a broken heart. But, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining: the heartache served as inspiration for Nakai’s debut album, Nadia Naked, fueling it with raw and powerful emotions.

Despite the distance, Nadia Nakai spoke openly about their relationship, admitting that it wasn’t always easy. In July 2021, she shared how they managed to keep their long-distance romance alive.

Sadly, their love story didn’t last. In August of the same year, during an episode of Truth or Drink with Lasizwe Dambuza, Nadia Nakai revealed that she and Vic Mensa had gone their separate ways
