Nasty C has come under fire from some of his Zulu fans who want to know what the famous South African rapper does not have any verses in his own tongue.
Coming from KwaZulu-Natal, Nasty C has been criticised for rapping mostly in English and his Zulu fans see it as a sign of disrespect that the doesn't embrace his culture more.
However, Nasty C has his own reasons for not rapping in Zulu.
"I want the world to know there’s more than just Afrobeats in Africa. Even my Zulu verses, I kept them for my album. Everyone had been saying ‘you from Durban, why do you never rap in Zulu?" he argued.
"I didn’t even know he dropped that (teaser). I didn’t know. I am not out here keeping tabs on other artists. But I know social media is like that. They are bored at home at the moment and nothing is going on in their lives, so they just want to see something happen.
“They just want to be entertained, but I am not worried about that kind of stuff. Each to his own, say what you want, I don’t care really," he said.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Cassper Nyovest recently couldn't help but agree when a fan pointed out that he had been a huge inspiration to A-Reece and Nasty C.
The fan remembered that A-Reece had previously written a song all about Mufasa.
The fan wrote, "Both Nasty and Reece inspired by Cass." Another fan said, "Reece has a whole song about Cassper." Cassper reserved his comment, but he retweeted both tweets meaning he definitely agrees.
