Nasty C, whose real name is Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo, has been a fan of Chris Brown for as long as he can remember. He has often cited Brown as one of his biggest musical inspirations and has said that meeting him would be a dream come true. In the picture, Nasty C can be seen smiling widely as he stands next to Chris Brown, who also appears to be happy to meet the young rapper.
The picture was taken backstage at Chris Brown’s concert in Johannesburg, South Africa, where Nasty C was one of the opening acts. Nasty C had previously expressed his excitement about the concert, saying that it was a “big deal” for him to be performing on the same stage as Chris Brown.
The post had drawn more than 5 000 comments by Wednesday morning, with the likes of Boity, Moozlie, Kid X, Zingah, Uncle Vinny, Cooper Pabi and DJ Zinhle applauding him.
“Damn Chris finally got to meet his idol”, while Pamela Mtanga poked fun at his height in the original edited image he posted on social media to exaggerate his height. He went on to post the original image a few hours later.”
The rapper is directly signed to the international record label Def Jam. A move which was meant to propel his music career from just a well-respected South African or African rapper to one that was meant to have international appeal. However, in the three years and counting, the rapper has been more of an up-and-coming international artist arguably than a bona fide international rapper.
Nasty C has been making waves in the South African music scene since he was a teenager. He first gained attention with his mixtape “One Kid, a Thousand Coffins,” which he released in 2012 when he was just 16 years old. Since then, he has released several successful albums and has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music industry.
