Nasty C has opened up about the process he went through to make the music for the Blood & Water soundtrack.
He told News24 that the lyrics to the song I Need You came easy, as the emotions he was trying to convey through music, was similar to something that he experienced in real life.
He said, "The breakdown that I was given for the song, I Need You, was about Puleng on this endless search for her sister that she was separated from, from birth. And that's very similar to something that happened to me in real life. When I was 11 months old, my mother passed away and the two sides of the family kind of split. I grew up on my father's side, and my mother's side of the family was in Cape Town. I only found out about them when I was 10, and then only got to meet them when I was around 13."

After working on the soundtrack for some time, Nasty found out he'd gotten an acting role on the show.
Nasty has never acted before and he admits that playing a character so similar to his real-life persona made it much easier.
Nasty C hopes Blood & Water will show teens that they are not alone and teach them to be more vocal about their emotions.
He said, "Nobody is perfect, and it's okay to have trials here and there, as long as you work on yourself."
Blood & Water debuted to rave reviews and a huge audience last month.
