Nasty C is not interested in doing Amapiano. The young rapper made this clear to his fans recently on Instagram live.
Mzansi rappers such as Cassper Nyovest, Reason and Focalistic have switched genres and they have dropped hits since they moved to Amapiano. Nasty C said he admires the genre but would rather drop a House track than a yanos tune.
The video of the star replying to his stans was shared on Twitter by entertainment blogger Musa Khawula. The There They Go hitmaker said he would be "faking it" if he jumped on the Amapiano bandwagon. According to ZAlebs, he added:
"I love Amapiano man, it comes with a different type of energy... I would be faking it if I did it."

The star's fans shared mixed reactions to Nasty C's comment on Amapiano. Check out some of their reactions below:
"Amapiano sounds the same, an impeccable lyricist like Nasty C would be downgrading his craft. Those artists make a whole album with just 1 bar, come on now really."
"I'm not a fan of Hip hop but whoever asked him to do an Amapiano song disrespects his craft. Leave Amapiano for Amapianos and let HipHop people do their HipHop in peace."
"I don't think anyone was going to ask... But kudos to him."
"Neah his fans were asking him if he would jump on amapiano genre so his response got nothing to do with other hip hop artists doing Amapiano."
"I love him for being real. He's not trying to change his craft just to fit in. He knows what he's good at and what we love him for."
