Artist encourages struggling artist to persevere
YOU know you’re in the presence of a major league celebrity when you have to save yourself from being run over by a mob of screaming teenage girls.
Making his artist and tour date announcement for his Ivyson Tour for Namibia, the prolific South African artist, Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo, best known by his stage name, Nasty C, made a brief appearance in the capital earlier this week.
The event, which was held at Cramerʼs Ice Cream restaurant, was attended by Namibian artists, Lioness, Römi and KK – who are all set to perform alongside Nasty C.
Having jam-started his Ivyson Tour in Kenya, the South African rapper is set to perform in Namibia on Saturday, 28 November at Palm Tree Park from 17h00.
Fans sang along to some of his songs from his recently released album ‘Strings and Bling’.
The album was released in July and contains 17 tracks and features the likes of A$AP Rocky and Kaien-Cruz.
Sharing his excitement for his Ivyson Tour performance in Namibia, Nasty C stated that he personally selected the official line up for the event based on how deserving the artists are, while event organizers tend to the performance line up.
Giving a hint of what fans can look forward to, Nasty C mused, “I don’t like people that like to come to my tours just to stand there. I want people to sing along, dance and let loose.”
The artist further told fans that he is currently busy with creating a mix tape and told them to be on the lookout for new music.
Encouraging artists with a burning fire to make it big, Nasty C said: “It doesn’t matter where you come from, if music is your passion and you’re willing to be patient, you will make it. I feel like nobody is representing the young artists that are truly talented. I want to promote artist that are coming from the struggle, those who have been patient. Just keep working hard, anything can happen.”
Yesterday, the artist was scheduled to pay a courtesy visit to students at Unam and NUST, as well as learners at a local school as part of his promotional tour.
