South African rapper Nasty C recently dropped the visuals for one of the biggest songs on his Zulu Man With Some Power album titled Black & White featuring American singer Ari Lennox.
The release hasn’t been received very well as the video garnered close to half a million views in just 24-hours.
Because the entire globe is still on Lockdown, Ari shot her scenes in the US while Nasty C shot his in Cape Town.
In the video, the two are madly in love, although they are so far apart. The chemistry between the two is so clear for everyone to see. The video was trending all morning.
Real name, Country Shanade Salter, Ari Lennox in an American female vocalist from Washington DC. She is the first female to sign to J Cole’s Dreamville Records label. Since she dropped her first EP in 2016 she’s become a household name.
On the 11th of February, Nasty C celebrated his 24th birthday with close family and friends. Rumour has it that he’s just finished recording another album and they’re now in the selection process. It should be dropping very soon. His latest release, Zulu Man With Some Power received mixed reactions – with some calling it his weakest attempt to date.
To promote the album, Nasty C made his second Netflix appearance with the Zulu Man In Japan Documentary.
The visual experience, which is 48-minutes long, was captured by the talented Chris Nicols – it follows Nasty, as he is living carefree and collaborating with some of Japan’s hottest music acts, which include JP The Wavey, Ricky and Yoshi, among others.
He is fascinated with the culture, food, public transport and the overall level of normalcy that Japan afforded him comes across incredulously in the film.
“I’ve always had this feeling that I was meant to visit Japan. I could never really explain it. Perhaps it’s because I’m not just a rapper, I’m an artist and I feel like Japan is the hub of art. Shout out to Red Bull for giving me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and creativity as far as art, fashion and music go,” said Nasty C on Zulu Man In Japan.
