In other Nasty C-related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on how Nasty feels about being considered an Afrobeats artist overseas rather than a rapper, as he is here at home.
Nasty C is widely regarded as being one of the greatest rappers in Mzansi, but some people outside of the country categorise him as an Afrobeats musician. Nasty spoke to Audiomack and said that he doesn't mind being called an Afrobeats artist but he's working hard on changing that perception.
The rapper explained that even on the African continent, like in Nigeria, some consider him an Afrobeats artist. He also said he understands that the first African artists to make it on the international stage were from the Afrobeats genre, so he's not bitter about the classification but does want to change it.
