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:

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.
