Finally, my time! . . . Musician Nasty C

While many regard nomination as an achievement, Nasty C says he wants to go for the ‘kill’ at the coming South African Music Awards (SAMA) on May 27.

“Nomination is not enough…I want to win and am certain am going to,” a confident Nasty C told The Weekly after his performance at Boho night club in Bloemfontein last Saturday.

Returning to its original home at the Sun City Superbowl, the 23rd instalment of Sama awards will be filled with new faces as three of the country’s newest musicians have scooped the majority of the nominations.

Metro FM Music Award winner Nasty C’s debut album, Bad Hair Extensions, earned him nods for Best Newcomer of the Year, Best Male Artist of the Year, Best Album of the Year and Best Rap Album. Hot on the heels of Nasty C is rapper Kwesta with five nods, while new singing sensation Amanda Black has four.

Despite the heavy competition he finds himself in, Nasty C – real name David Ngcobo – is confident of scooping all major categories.

“No disrespect to other artists but I am certain that we are coming out tops come at the SAMA’s” he said.

“We’ve put a much more solid project than any of the guys and no doubt we deserve to win the majority of categories we were nominated in,” he further explained.

Though confidant, the rapper is not going to have it all easy as he battles it out with Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi popularly known as Kwesta in the two mayor Hip Hip categories; Best Album of the Year and Best Male Artist of the Year.

But the Bad Hair Extensions rapper, while giving credit to Kwesta for a perfectly structured album, remains confident of edging his counterpart out. “No doubts Dakar 11 is one of those perfectly structured albums of the year in my opinion. The concept was well thought out but I think we just edged it a little bit,” he added, stating that Kwesta was worthy of some victory as well at the awards.

Having scooped four awards at the 16th Metro FM Music Awards early this year, there’s no doubt that young rapper could possibly pull the same stunt as this year’s Sama awards to be hosted by Somizi Mhlongo and Free State born comedian, Tumi Morake.
