Nasty C Releases New Netflix Documentary 'Zulu Man in Japan'

Nasty C takes over Japan and makes a number of impressive moves in his new Netflix documentary titled 'Zulu Man in Japan'.

Nasty C has released a new documentary titled Zulu Man in Japan on Netflix and it's a definite must-see. This documentary follows the successful release of the artist's third studio album Zulu Man with Some Power. Zulu Man in Japan is a 48-minute visual experience of Nasty C's journey and artistic exploration of Japanese culture. The artist took to Twitter to share the news.


The 23-year-old is not one to shy away from the camera and his contagious personality immediately draws you into the documentary. The short documentary shows Nasty C collaborating with young Japanese musicians, JP The Wavey, Ricky and Yoshi,JP The Wavey, Ricky and Yoshi. This documentary is a hip hop spectacle which sees Nasty C flexing his creative muscles by creating seven songs in just eights days.

Speaking about the process, the artist says the following:

"I've always had this feeling that I was meant to visit Japan. I could never really explain it. Perhaps it's because I'm not just a rapper, I'm an artist and I feel like Japan is the hub of art. Shout out to Red Bull for giving me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and creativity as far as art, fashion and music go."

It seems Nasty C has not only gained popularity in the West but also in the East. In August, he released the Origins documentary via Apple Music which documented his musical journey in London. Evidently, the Durbanite belongs to the world now.

The short film was captured by the equally talented Chris Nicols. Zulu Man in Japan is a collaboration between Red Bull, Africa Creative Agency and Ivyson Entertainment. The documentary is available for viewing on Netflix.
