Johannesburg – Nasty C woke up with a powerful message for fans on Friday, talking about the adversity he faced when he chose rap as a career.
“I just wanted to speak about something that I was thinking about when I got up. I was thinking about all the times that people told me that I wouldn’t make it,” the rapper started out in one clip.
He added: “Side note: I think I’m making it. People gave me a million reasons why I wouldn’t make it and why I shouldn’t do what I’m doing right now every day.”
“Like people told me I wouldn’t make it because I was too shy. My voice just wasn’t bold enough. I’m not bold enough. I just don’t have the looks. People told me I was too soft-spoken. Too much of an introvert to do it. People that were really close to me. so I could have easily just listened to that and stuck to the normal way of living and just like not pursued my dreams.”
Lucky for us, Nasty C refused to listen to the haters, choosing instead to prove them wrong. In a second clip the young star said: “But I reminded myself one day that I got up and I wanted to do this, nobody put a gun to my head and told me to pick this. I wanted to do this, so I remind myself of that every day.”
