Nadia Nakai On Accusations That She’s Imitating Nicki Minaj & Cardi B. Rappee Nadia was speaking to ZAlebz when she opened up about how she feels about being accused of imitating American rappers Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. She even went on to speak of how he has too been accused of copying Babes Wodumo on her hairstyles, also being compared to a new rapper Boity.
“People be like, Nadia has a bunch of coloured weaves because she’s tryna be like Nicki Minaj, and if I’m too opinionated, I’m tryna be like Cardi B, but there’s a lot of people that have known me for the longest time, I had coloured hair before Babes Wodumo came out, I was always popping off long before Cardi B was popping, so my thing is that people will always have an opinion to break down women, ‘this is not your identity, you stole it from someone,’ she said.
“I’m never gonna be upset about that because you can never be number one if you’re not running the race with other people. I’m ok when people say Boity dropped a song and they want to compare me and her, I really don’t mind, that doesn’t make me angry because Boity has never done anything to me, every time I see her it’s always been cool, it’s been cordial, we went to the same varsity as well, and I’ve known her for a while.
I feel like women coming together, it helps, but I honestly feel like it shouldn’t be about that, you want to be put up against the other male counterparts, not because we are girls coming together kumbaya-ing. I want to be able to fill up the dome by my damn self, not because we all kumbaya and they put all of us together. That’s an accomplishment I want for my own career as an individual, not because I’m a woman, but because I’m a musician…”
