- South African rapper Nasty C has been recognised by Forbes Africa for his contribution to music
- This is not the first time that the publication has paid tribute to the musician, having named him one of the top under 30 artists in the continent
- Nasty C acknowledged the accolade by expressing his excitement at the honour
Nasty C is becoming a force to be reckoned with. The young rapper was given his flowers by Forbes Africa recently.
Forbes Africa named Nasty as an icon of the continent in their 100th issue cover story.
This is not the first time the publication recognizes Nasty C for his contributions to the entertainment industry.
In 2018, the rapper was one of the Creatives to make the FORBES AFRICA 30 Under 30 list.
The star furthered his international footprint from being featured in Rhythms of Zamunda – Coming 2 America soundtrack to also performing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in February.
Nasty C also recorded a song with American singer Ari Lennox and US rapper TI, cementing his status as a global force.
Speaking to Forbes Africa about the achievement, Nasty C said that he was excited and honored.
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mzansi rapper Nasty C has been working hard lately and has been making waves in the US as well. The young rapper has now highlighted the difference between working with DJs from overseas and the DJs from South Africa.
Nasty C recently did an interview with YFM's DJ Sabby, talking about the success of his music, not just in Mzansi but in the US as well. Sabby then asked Nasty C what was different about working with American record producers.
Nasty C has just released a mixtape with US DJ Whoo Kid and the rapper mentioned that the difference between American DJs and Mzansi DJs is the level of speed, saying that overseas DJs don't waste any time or play around.
"There’s no 'I’m gonna get back to you in like three days'. No, it’s tapping in every single day. Multiple times a day, have you done this song? I got more beats for you," he said.
The young rapper mentioned that the studio sessions are different too. In the US, Nasty C spends more time in the studio with back-to-back sessions for seven days straight.
Nasty C said that American DJs press artists when it comes to submitting work, something that Mzansi DJs are lacking.
