Listen to Nasty C’s New Album ‘Zulu Man With Some Power’

Stream Nasty C's 'Zulu Man With Some Power' album featuring Ari Lennox, T.I., Tellaman, Lil Gotit, Lil Keed and more.

It's finally here. Zulu Man With Some Power, Nasty C's highly anticipated third studio album, in its entirety is now available for streaming and downloading.

Zulu Man With Some Power has already broken records. The project 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.


The results aren't by coincidence. Apart from Nasty C's undeniable talent and large fanbase, the rapper has the backing of Universal Music Group and Def Jam Recordings. In the last few months, Nasty C has been trending. The rapper's impressive rollout included a string of singles and music videos, a series of murals across the globe (South Africa, Kenya, Japan, New York etc.), and conversation around him embracing his identity more than he ever has.

Zulu Man With Some Power comes with Nasty C's first all-Zulu verse in the song "Zulu Man". He pays homage to his father, with whom he hasn't always had a great relationship with, in the song "Ababulali", which samples a prison standard song and a standard church hymn.

Features on Zulu Man With Some Power include US superstars Ari Lennox and T.I., and his frequent collaborators Tellaman and Rowlene. Lil Gotit, Lil Skeed appear on the trap anthem "Bookoo Bucks" which is produced by ATL Jacobs (you may know him if you listen to Future).

Zulu Man With Some Power is a follow-up to Nasty C's 2018 album Strings and Bling, which followed his debut Bad Hair. Nasty C has been extending his footprint across the globe, with the US showing him more love than any other country outside of South Africa.

How Technology Is Playing a Crucial Role in the #EndSARS Protests

Young people in Nigeria have successfully managed to use technological innovations to organize and make the #EndSARS protests run incredibly efficiently and easily. This moment will go down in history as a revolution that was birthed via technology.

It has been more than a week since young people in Nigeria took to the streets to demand that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, infamously known as SARS, be scrapped for good. Created in 1992, this police unit was originally set up to beat back armed robbery, the use of firearms and rising cases of kidnappings that grew in the late eighties. However, the unit went rogue, becoming more notorious for its savagery than actual crime-fighting. With a rap sheet ranging from profiling, harassment and assault to, in more extreme cases, slaughtering innocent citizens, these quasi-officers have unleashed terror on the nation for more than two decades.

Their victims are predominantly young Nigerians profiled on appearance—whether they drive exotic vehicles, use the latest gadgets, have their hair dyed or locked, or have piercings. In some cases, working in tech often gets conflated with financial fraud. For people who don't meet the absurd criteria, the mood of the officer can often become the difference between life and death.
