…despite wet weather delaying concert
By Jeoffrey Mukubi
WITH dark clouds looming over Windhoek city this past Saturday afternoon, it was imminent that it would rain and dampen Namibians the opportunity to witness South African rap sensation, Nasty C.
Although it did rain, it eventually subsided and the Trans Namib Sports Grounds became a hive of activity as it started to fill up gradually.
By 20h00 the grounds were full to capacity and the local deejays were belting out various genres of pop music, hip hop, electronic dance music and local hits.
Despite everything having taken off well, the rain seemed to have had an effect on the sound system, which caused interference when the main act, Nasty C came out to perform his hit track Juice Back.
Before rapping his first verse, the sound stopped prompting the lyricist to go back stage.
Although it took about 10 minutes for the sound crew to get the sound back on, Nasty C only performed for another 25 minutes. But despite all the blunders, his performance was still electric.
Fans who attended the event were not amused at the fact that the local performers did not perform before the young luminary as they could not wait for him to step on stage. KP Illest, Jaleel and LMPC all performed after the South African raising a few eyebrows, since Namibians are accustomed to headliner artists performing last.
Earlier that day Nasty C held a press conference at Avani Hotel and Confidente got the opportunity to speak to him.
The artist said that it had always been his dream to become a superstar, adding that he did not think it would come as fast as it had for him.
“I always imagined becoming a star and I would ask the universe for it, I would also pray to my mother and to God about it. I just did not imagine it coming this quick,” he said.
The 21 one year old who oozes with good vibes and a welcoming aura also said that he felt welcome and happy to have been invited to Namibia. “I’ve always wanted to come to Namibia, but nobody invited me until now,” he said.
Since 2014, Nasty C has released two mixtapes, one EP (Extended Play) and a debut album titled Bad Hair, which was released for free and later on released Bad Hair Extensions with an additional four songs.
Nasty C says his sophomore album titled Strings and Bling is set to be released soon, with a special surprise for fans who buy it. He also confirmed a feature with American rapper ASAP Ferg. “I just want to put out dope music,” he said.
The young millionaire is also big on inventions and says he is planning to become a billionaire by the age of 36. “I am busy with a couple of inventions of my own, and it’s obv i ously to help people and solve social problems.
One can only hope he comes back to Namibia as he is adamant on possibly featuring a Namibian artist, adding that, “If they got good vibes then we can definitely work.” Nasty C finished off his weekend by travelling to the coastal town of Swakopmund, where he filmed himself on Instagram riding a camel.
