Rapper Nadia Nakai took to Twitter on Sunday evening to share that she’d been repeatedly listening to a song her late boyfriend AKA made with K.O.

First, she posed a question, “What is south Aaah without Aka? 🥲.” She then went on to share that AKA was so proud of his verse in his collaboration with the “Sete” hitmaker and pleaded with him to release the song.

“There’s a song Kiernan did with KO. (Not out yet) but he was soooo proud of his verse,” she said.

“I hope KO drops It!!! Please do! @MrCashtime I listen to it all the time! ‘It’s hard to be a stand up guy and stand the test or time” Skanda God! Meeeeega!!!!” #Godly…”

After a tweep commented, “This feeling just won't go away, even the happiest songs of his make me sad, I'm like how?, Really?”

Nakai responded, “I can’t listen to his songs… his voice.. hai I can’t.”

A few days after AKA died back in February, K.O shared that the two had been in studio working on new music.

“Exactly 7 days ago, AKA and myself were in the studio recording a precursor single to our long overdue collaborative tape. 7 days later I can't believe I'm even here making this post.”

“Rest in heaven dear friend, king, legend, icon, GOAT. Love you for life.” Prior to his death, AKA had gone toe to toe with K.O as their respective hit singles “Lemons (Lemonade)” and “Sete” dominated the charts.

Paying homage to the evergreen veteran rapper, AKA wrote back in September, “An absolute animal. A master of re invention. My idol amongst idols. @mrcashtime ... I've been chasing your level for over a decade now. Your stamina is breathtaking congratulations 🐐 🇿🇦”
