NASTY C

MEET THE COOLEST KID IN AFRICA

Undoubtedly the coolest kid in Africa, Nasty C has solidified himself as one of the biggest acts in the South African music scene. From clinching a PUMA endorsement and an international collaboration with French Montana, to scooping the biggest awards in the country, he continues to dominate local radio airwaves with hit singles such as “Hell Naw”, “Good Girls”, “Snapchat Hoes”, “Allow” and his latest release “U Ok”. His EP Bad Hair Extensions (2016) made history by being at the #1 spot on the iTunes chart for six consecutive weeks. He makes a debut on Coke Studio Africa 2017, where he is paired alongside Nigerian artiste Runtown.

THE JOURNEY

Nasty C released his first mixtape One Kid a Thousand Coffins in 2013 followed by his sophomore project titled L.A.M.E EP a year later. On his late mother's birthday and the day before his 18th birthday, he dropped another mixtape Price City (2015). Nasty C released his major single "Juice Back" which later spawned a remix featuring Davido and Cassper Nyovest.

He was also featured on Anatii and Cassper Nyovest's collaborative single "Jump" in 2016. He is currently signed to Mabala Noise Entertainment. Nasty C’s debut album Bad Hair and Bad Hair Extensions EP have garnered him fans across the continent and made him one of the most sought after acts to book. His recent 3-city Ster-Kinekor Veliswa premier of three music videos for hit singles: “Don’t Do It”, “Phases & Good Girls” and “Snapchat Hoes”, have highlighted why Nasty C is in his own lane.
