Everyone in Mzansi knows that Nasty C is a rapper. The There They Go hitmaker is not just an ordinary rapper but he is one of the best the country has ever produced. Many of his South African followers don't know that some countries outside of the continent, and a few others in the continent, consider him an Afrobeats artist.
The star recently opened up about being not being regarded as a rapper by some people living overseas. The young musician recently expressed that he doesn't feel bitter when some describe him as the biggest Afrobeats artist in Africa.
According to SAHipHopMag, Nasty C recently told Audiomack in an interview that a lot of people from outside of the continent "think Afrobeats" when they hear his music.
"There’ve been a lot of occasions where we’ll be in meetings, maybe (with a digital streaming platform), and we’ll get there, and they’ll say, 'You’re definitely one of the biggest Afrobeats artists in Africa'.
"I understand the first people to break out of Africa for music were Afrobeats artists, so I don’t feel bitter. It makes it a little bit harder to break down that stereotype, but it’s cool. I’m here to be the person that breaks down that barrier and let people know we have so much more over here."
Even the Lagos Jump Radio from Nigeria doesn't consider Nasty C as a hip-hop artist. The 24-hour streaming service recently posted:
"#NowPlaying: I Need You by Nasty C ft. Rowlene @Nasty_CSA The best in Afrobeats non stop!"
In other music news, Briefly.co.za reported that Emtee recently took to social media to tell his fans to stop supporting his albums . The star's album Manando is currently on the list of top 15 best hip-hop albums on Apple Music. He made the blazing album four years ago when he was still signed to Ambitiouz Entertainment.
The Roll Up hitmaker shared that he is not getting any money even though the album is still doing well in terms of sales and streaming on Apple Music. He took to Twitter to discourage his fans from streaming or buying the album. The star wrote:
"An album I released 4 years ago that I’m not getting the money for on this list? I must be the greatest."
He also told a fan, who applauded him for producing some of his best work on the two albums, to forget about them because he is not getting the bag for both of them.
"Trust me. Forget about it cos you know the sales and stream money is not coming to me."
