The lavish gig was attended by local celebrities dressed by top designers. American rapper Nicki Minaj dropped some new music recently and she has given us a glimpse of her latest video which has the whole of South Africa talking as it seems that the rapper's concept for it is similar to Mzansi hitmaker Nadia Nakai's.

In late 2016, we saw Cassper Nyovest and American rapper Kanye West’s names in one sentence and trending for the first and now, two years later, it seems that the same thing is happening to member Nadia Nakai.

At the time of writing, the Naaa Meeaan video had reached more than 691 000 views on YouTube and now Nadia Nakai and her fans seem to be convinced that Nicki Minaj could have been among those numbers.

They believe Nicki may have used the same concept for her video. 

Social media has been lit ever since The Shaderoom posted an image that gave us the first glimpse of Nicki Minaj’s music video.

Check some of the reactions below:

The post seems to have gone as viral and is getting the attention of influencers.

Radio personality Ayanda MVP said that Cardi B's Money Bag song was inspired by Nadia Nakai and British rapper Stefflon Don went on to tell Nadia to contact The Shaderoom.
