Nasty C, rapper, songwriter, record producer of Zulu Man with Some Power fame, celebrates his birthday today.
Born as Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo on 11 February 1997, he took on the name Nasty C for his profession.
He has the distinction of being the youngest recipient of an award at the 2015 South African Hip Hop Awards, that is the Best Freshman Award.

AKA has been rather supportive of Nasty C’s gift. So much so, that he compared Nasty to the late and great Pro Kid. Pro Kid, lost his life two years ago, but music has had a lasting impact on the Hip Hop fraternity in the country.
When his solidarity attempt with Nigeria went awry
His South African fans were furious when Nasty C attempted to use his platform to show solidarity for the people of Nigeria.
That too, when the social media led movement of the #PutSouthAfricansFirst movement was trying to make some noise. This movement asks that South Africans be prioritized in South Africa.
