Burna Boy has named Nasty C, a South African hip-hop artist and rapper, as one of the best rappers alive today.
This was stated by the Grammy Award-winning diverse Afrobeat performer during a recent interview that was published online today, July 4th, 2021. Burna, the interviewer, inquired about his thoughts on how Americans label all African music as Afrobeats. He challenged the label, claiming that not all African music is Afrobeat.
Nasty C's music cannot be classified as Afrobeats, according to Burna Boy, because he is from Africa.
“Yeah, everything is not afrobeats. Nasty C is a rapper. And because he’s from Africa now, you’re going to say Afrobeats? Nah, he’s a rapper. Brah, I’ll put my money on Nasty C over almost any American rapper. No Cap”
