Nasty C is set to add an international collaboration to his repertoire, after going into studio with US actor and musician Omari Hardwick.
Omari, who plays the role of Ghost in the hit US drama Power, is in the country to shoot a summer campaign with local beer brand Castle Lite, and spoke openly about being a fan of rapper Nasty C.
Now it seems that his dream of getting young Nasty to feature on his upcoming debut album may have come true.
Speaking to TMG Entertainment on Thursday, Nasty C’s management Mabala Noise confirmed that the pair had gone into studio and were working on an exciting new track.
“Nasty C is happy and excited to be working with Omari. He is humbled by the opportunity to work with someone of Omari’s calibre,” Mabala Noise’s publicist Tumi Moatshe said.
Speaking to Sowetan earlier this week, Omari spoke about his hopes to feature Nasty C on a musical project.
“I have an album coming up in March. I’m a poet as well, so the album is musical, it’s some rap and some spoken word. Nas is hopefully going to be on it, Anthony Hamilton and Estelle Swaray – who has got African ancestry. Now, the guy that I want to join me is this 19-year-old sensation Nasty C. This kid is incredibly gifted. I was put onto him last night and I was blown away. Black Coffee is brilliant as well, and then there is Wizkid – also talented. I’m very familiar with AKA too. I’m a music junkie. I always find new music,” he said.
