Watch Nasty C Perform ‘Palm Trees’ and ‘How Many Times’ on Vevo’s ‘Ctrl.At.Home’

Nasty C performs two songs 'Palm Trees' and 'How Many Times' from 'Zulu Man With Some Power' on Vevo's 'Ctrl.At.Home' series.

Nasty C is the latest artist to render a performance for Vevo's live performance series Ctrl.At.Home. Artists who have appeared on the series include Flo Milli, SiR, YFN Lucci and Royce Da 5'9" among many others.

For his session, Nasty C performs two songs from Zulu Man With Some Power from the comfort of his home. He performs the club banger "Palm Trees" outside his backdoor and the mellow "How Many Times" to a backdrop of the ocean and mountains.


"Palm Trees" was the last single Nasty C ahead of Zulu Man With Some Power, his recently dropped third studio album. "How Many Times" is a song about his journey to the top of the food chain. He reflects on persevering ("When shit got hard, I got harder/ When the money got small, I stood taller").

The song appears in the section of Zulu Man With Some Power which Nasty C described last year as "a rollercoaster"—a section that includes songs such as "Zone" and "All In", songs in which Nasty is in touch with his feelings.

It is one of the most powerful tools used in changing the way in which the West perceives Africa and its diaspora and perhaps the reason why contemporary photography is thriving.

The female gaze is paramount to the way in which the aforementioned visual stories are told and the female photographers here are using their camera lenses to give us glimpses of lands, peoples, histories, and futures unknown. Their individual experiences and perspectives are widening the scope of what is believed to be Côte d'Ivoire. Within the country's capital, Abidjan, there's a creative scene that seems to have sprawled up out of nowhere yet is so rich in its offerings.
