Rapper Nadia Nakai recently celebrated her 33rd birthday with her nearest and dearest during a few events in Joburg, and while the parties were lit, she missed the presence of her late boyfriend and rapper AKA.

Bragga took to her Instagram Stories to share some recent pictures of the celebration, but also reflected on last year’s celebration with AKA, adding that “things were different”.

She wrote: “Last year you were with me celebrating my birthday. This year you’re not. It’s hard to get my mind around it.”

The “40 Bars” hitmaker celebrated with the likes of Thusi, social media influencer Mihlali Ndamase and Nomuzi “Moozlie” Mabena among others.

Meanwhile, AKA’s mother, Lynn Forbes, stepped in for her slain son to pen a heart-warming birthday message to “Mama Bragga”.

Together with a video clip of visiting Nakai, at her house, with Kairo (AKA’s daughter) and gifts in toe, Forbes wrote: “Happy birthday @nadianakai 💐.

“You are one of the most beautiful humans I know and your light radiates from within. Thank you for being you.

“You are a blessing and it is an honour to know you. Keep on shining your light into the world. I wish you endless blessings, love and joy.

“You deserve only the best and it will come to you in ways you cannot begin to imagine. We love you 🙏🏽❤️.”
