Nadia scooped up two awards - Best Female Artiste Southern Africa and Best Artist, Duo or Group in African Hip Hop and was quickly hailed as the African Rap Queen.
This comes after she also won the Female of the Year Award at the 2019 South African Hip Hop Awards.
Nasty C also won big - he took home the prestigious Best African Rapper/Lyricist Award as well as Best African Collaboration prize for his track, SMA, featuring Rowlene.
