Multi-award-winning South African hip-hop artist Nadia Nakai is thrilled to announce the release of her brand new single, ‘Umfazi’, which marks her dynamic entry into the innovative genre of Three Step. Known for her impactful presence in the hip-hop scene, Nadia continues to redefine her musical journey, now embracing the fresh sounds of this Amapiano sub-genre. 

‘Umfazi’ is not just a new musical venture; it is a powerful anthem inspired by the iconic phrase “wa thinta umfazi wa thinta imbokodo,” translating to “if you strike a woman, you strike a rock.” The song echoes the resilience and unwavering determination of women, urging them to stand firm against adversity and reclaim their power. In a society where unjust laws often seek to silence them, “Umfazi” becomes a unifying force, amplifying women’s voices in solidarity. 

Nadia Nakai, who was raised in Johannesburg and attended high school in Kenya, has been a trailblazer since signing with Family Tree Media. Her debut single with the label, “Money Back,” garnered significant attention, featuring on major platforms such as MTV Base and South Africa’s ETV soapie, Rhythm City. Her EP “Bragga” debuted at number 2 on the iTunes hip-hop chart, followed by the hit single “Naaa Meaan” featuring Cassper Nyovest, making her the first female hip-hop artist in South Africa to surpass 1 million views on YouTube. 
Her subsequent successes, including “Yass Chic” and collaborations like “RaggaRagga” with Gemini Major, have earned her numerous award nominations, solidifying her status as a prominent figure in the South African music industry. Nadia’s collaboration with The Fashion Group’s Sportscene on the Nadia Nakai x Redbat collection further showcased her versatility and influence, with the collection selling out nationwide within a month. 
Now, with ‘Umfazi’, Nadia is set to establish a significant presence in the new genre of Three Step. This release is poised to resonate not only locally but also across the African continent, making an impact in East Africa, West Africa, and neighbouring countries. The fusion of Three Step’s unique rhythm with Nadia’s empowering message highlights her commitment to evolving her sound and expanding her artistic reach. 
“Umfazi” is a defiant declaration of empowerment, celebrating the strength and resilience of women. As Nadia Nakai ventures into Three Step, she continues to inspire and uplift through her music, urging women to stand their ground and defy all odds.  
‘Umfazi’ is available on all major streaming platforms:
