Watch Nasty C’s Lockdown Desktop Concert in its Entirety

Watch Nasty C perform some of his hits and unreleased songs during his Lockdown Desktop Concert.

Two days ago, Nasty C threw a virtual concert from his home studio. Nasty performs a combination of hits ("Czzle," "God Flow," "There They Go") and unreleased songs ("OG Dee") which could be assumed to be in his upcoming album Zulu Man With Some Power due for release later this year.


Unlike most of the virtual concerts by South African artists that took place during the lockdown, Nasty's show ran professionally with crisp sound quality and multiple cameras that give the viewer different angles and shots.

The show was powered by Red Bull, a brand Nasty C has worked with multiple times before, in collaboration with Universal Music Group Africa and Def Jam Recordings.

Prior to the concert, the emcee stated he missed the stage hence he threw the concert for his fans.

"I'm hoping to provide a bit of entertainment as we all try and do our part to get through this difficult time. I miss performing in front of my fans and I thought this would be an amazing way for us to feel connected," states Nasty C in a press release distributed by UMG Africa. "We are all in this together."

The concert was followed by a Q&A in which Nasty took questions from his fans live on YouTube. Watch Nasty C's Lockdown Desktop Concert and the Q&A below:

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
