Zulu Man With Some Power is the biggest pre-add for an album in South Africa and the biggest pre-add globally for a South African artist on Apple Music
Nasty C’s career trajectory reads like a fairytale and his new documentary, Origins, is a look behind the curtain as to how a kid from Illovo, Durban, became the household name in hip-hop that he is today. The documentary is directed by Andrew Sandler and sees Nasty C (real-name Nsikayezwe David Junior Ngcobo) at his most honest, travelling back to his hometown of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, to reveal the roots of his musical inspiration. About the documentary he says, “I’m a different flavour of Zulu and that’s what I’m trying to show to the world, you know?”

Nasty C also revels in his upbringing, culture and heritage. His upcoming album, Zulu Man With Some Power,
speaks to him ultimately owning who he is and inspiring the next generation of black children to dream and embrace their uniqueness. Focusing on the close relationship he now has with his father, Nasty C reveals in a poignant moment that he didn’t always have his father’s blessing to make music, and after the passing of his mother when he was 11 months old, reflects on how he didn’t have the support that he needed but persevered regardless.
From dreaming big in Durban to waking up with a record deal at Def Jam, and even becoming the youngest ever recipient of an award at the SA Hip Hop Awards in 2015, Origins ultimately unveils what fuels this hip hop powerhouse. It is available to stream on Apple Music from today.
