Nadia Nakai is one of the rappers who have recently been signed to Def Jam Africa.
The 40 Bars hitmaker has revealed some of the reasons why Mzansi rappers have signed with the major label.
Def Jam announced the launch of their African division earlier this week.
Some of the artists who have been signed to the stable include Tshego, Cassper Nyovest, Boity Thulo and Nasty C.
Bragga has explained what the new deal means for her after being in the game for eight years.
According to SAHipHopMag, the stunner told BBC Africa that it feels amazing to be signed to Def Jam.
"It feels amazing to be honest with you because I grew up watching the music videos with that Def Jam logo at the end and it felt like it was the fraternity of Hip Hop. A lot of the artists that I listen to like Ludacris and DMX were part of that label."

Nadia said it felt like "a hip-hop movement" when she was announced among some of the rappers that have been signed by the label.
"For me it’s so exciting also being announced with other artists because it feels like a hip hop movement and I feel like that's what's going to inspire African hip hop artists to wanna be a part of Def Jam cause it wasn't just about being a part of a label but being a part of a group of people that were under that label."
Nadia emphasised that her hard work over the years has brought her to this major deal.
"I think people need to be inspired to remember that good things come to those who work for it."
Briefly.co.za reported that rapper Boity said she was looking forward to her new venture with Def Jam Africa.
