Watch Nasty C’s Interview on Sway In The Morning

Sway wants to make Nasty C big in the US.

South African rapper Nasty C recently sat down with Sway for yet another interview. While his 2017 interview on Sway In The Morning was introductory, this time around, Sway and Nasty C discussed the rapper's latest album Strings and Bling, and caught up about what has happened since the last time they spoke.


Sway is clearly a huge Nasty C fan.

"Citizens, I'm telling you, this guy is the truth," the host told his listeners. "I wanna make this kid big here in the States, too. I want him to be big everywhere 'cause he's rapping better than a lot of these dudes here in the States is already." Fax only!

In the interview, Nasty C talks about the late Pro, his collaboration with A$AP Ferg, why he doesn't rap in IsiZulu, starting his own record label, him being a producer, among other things. He also performs his duet with Rowlene, the emotionally intense "SMA."

Nasty C also appeared on TRL and got to hang out with 50 Cent.

Watch his interview with Sway and his co-hosts below, and revisit Strings and Bling underneath.

Kayode Kasum’s Quarantine Watchlist

From 'Wives on Strike' to 'Goodwill Hunting' here's what the Nigerian filmmaker is watching while stuck at home in Lagos.

Kayode Kasum, like most filmmakers, has been stagnated by the coronavirus pandemic. The director behind the blockbuster Sugar Rush and the critically acclaimed Oga Bolaji was working on the post-production of his upcoming movies, The Fate of Alakada: Party Planner and Kambili—a collaboration between FilmOne Entertainment and Chinese Huahua Media— when the Nigerian government announced the lockdown order.

While post-production on Alakada has concluded, the stay-at-home orders have delayed work on Kambili. "Since the team cannot meet at a single point, we are moving hard drives left and right," he says to me over the phone from his home in Lagos. "It is a challenge, but the beautiful thing about a challenge is, when you make it work, it is fulfilling."

Kasum has turned to books and films for an escape from the unpleasant realities of the pandemic. "I have been reading Elnathan's books: Born on a Tuesday and Becoming Nigeria," he tells me. "I have also been reading film directing books, Directing Actors by Judith Weston." However, Kasum longs for the movies. "I miss going to the cinemas; I miss that experience," he says. "There are times during this pandemic that I'm like 'na wa o, I wish I can go to the cinema.'"

Below are five films he recommends you watch during this pandemic.
