Nadia and AKA made their romance Instagram official in early 2022. Less than one year later and the couple has already met each other's families. 

Nadia has met Kairo - the daughter AKA shares with his ex DJ Zinhle - as well as his mother, Lynn 'Glammy' Forbes. 

The 'Naaa Mean' rapper is also on good terms with Zinhle. 

"I've always respected her as an artist, as a mom, as a businesswoman. She's somebody that I look up to and I've always looked up to even after Kiernan," OKMzansi quoted her as saying. 

She told the publication that the DJ embraced her from the start.

"..walking into this situation she really made me feel comfortable. I did not feel that weird energy from her like, 'Oh my gosh, I don't like being around you.'... Kiernan set the precedence for both of us to make me feel comfortable as his girlfriend and not make me feel weirded out by my situation."
