Early life

The young twenty-year rapper Nasty C is named as Nsikayesizwe David Jr Ngcobo by his parents at the time of his birth. He was born on 11th February 1997 in KwaZulu Natal, Durban, South Africa. There is no detailed information about his father or mother. But it is known that his mother died because of a car accident when Nasty was just eleven months old, and he was basically raised by his father. Nasty was enrolled in the Nuz Junior High for his education, but again for his followers, there is no further information about his academic career.

He grew up with his elder brother who guided his younger one after the demise of their mother. Further his elder brother was into rapping when Nasty was just a kid, and his brother became a record producer. Nasty’s basic inspiration for music and rapping has come up with his elder brother. When Nasty was nine, he began rapping and within some years improved his skills which slowly started gathering the attention of the music admirers. He has a great contributor in his home in the form of his brother who helped him learn the way of music production. So actually rapper Nasty was improving both on his rapping ability and music production under the guidance of his elder brother.


While gathering confidence and improving his skills in rapping, he approached Free World Music which is an artist management organization. WsHis first production soon named Nsikayesizwe David Jr Ngcobo as Nasty C. He was already giving voice to his beats which he was composing so he was ready to cater the countless music lovers with his style. He was much inspired by the working morals of AKA, Reason and Khuli Chana and became quite popular as a local rapper. While pursuing a career in rapping, he had always wished to meet some really popular artist like AKA. One day an opportunity knocked his fortune as AKA was launching his first studio album titled “Altar Ego.” Later Nasty has expressed that to work alongside AKA in his countrywide launching of the album at Durban Festival was the most memorable incident of his life. He collaborated with Davido Adeleke and few Nigerian artists in the creation of “Coolest Kid in Africa.”

Nasty was getting numerous chances to appear with the other popular rappers in various programs, but he was searching the real breakthrough for himself. On 24th May 2013 the rapper came up with his debut mixtape which was titled as “One Kid a Thousand Coffins.” The mixtape was released from the label of Venomous Production and formatted for digital downloading. His endeavor was highly acclaimed by the innumerable music lovers all around. After this, the rapper with more confidence started working on his second project. The second effort was an extended play titled “C L.A.M.E” which was released on the 4th April 2014 from Outy Records. LAME was the short form of “Levitating above My Enemies.” After this successful release, Nasty came up with another admirable endeavor when he released his mixtape titled “Price City” on 10th February 2015.

His single “Juice Back” was highly acclaimed by the music lovers, which was later released as a remix featuring Cassper Nyovest and Davido. The production was made Gemini Major. At the starting the year 2016 he appeared in a collaborative track by Anatii and Cassper Nyovest which was titled as “Jump” and was released on 9th January 2016. After a week time on 17th January 2016 Nasty came up with the official remix music video of the single “Juice Back.” He was planning for the album titled “Bad Hair” and to initiate the endeavor he came up with a single in the early part of the year 2016. The single was titled as “Hell Naw.” The single went up to the fourth rank in the South African chart. His popularity rose high, and the audience was expecting an innovative album from the rapper.

For the utter surprise of all after getting into a contract with Mabala Noise Entertainment, the rapper dropped the much-awaited album “Bad Hair” quite astonishingly, free on the Audiomack. The reason sought by the rapper was that he could not compose the tracks in time for the release. At the end of the year 2016 Nasty released “Bad Hair Extension” with a terrific single titled “Allow” in which French Montana the American rapper was featured. Among the other singles which gave him popularity is “Bamm Bamm,” “Don’t Do It,” “Around Here,” “UNO,” and “Download Me.” All these singles earned him rank on the charts and gained some certifications. Nasty has appeared in many singles of various rappers in the role of the featured artist. The list includes “Way It Goes” by DJ Switch, “The Other Side” by Chad, “Tell ‘Em Say” by Tshego, “Bang Out” by DJ Vigilante, “Ubusha Bethu” by DJ Wobbly and many more.

Personal life

Ntombizodwa Beatrice Sibanyoni is perhaps a very special name in Nasty C’s life. But neither of them has ever shown any interest to disclose anything about their relationship to the public over any personal web address. According to some reliable source he is known to Ntombizodwa Beatrice since his schooling day at Nuz Junior High when he was a student of Grade 9.

Perhaps in some future day, they might disclose their relationship. In any case, Nasty C is presently focusing more on his musical career and want to establish himself as one of the most popular artists in the music world.

He is very young and had a long way ahead of him, so it is the time for the young aspirant to justify himself and deliver the best music to the world. Success would always be accompanied by one companion or the other, but it is always true to find a real friend and his fans and followers would always wish that he gets a real friend.

Nasty has earned few nominations for some prestigious awards. This includes the nomination for the Best Lyricist of the Year Award by the South African Hip Hop Awards in 2016 and Best International Act: Africa at BET Awards in 2017. The artist’s effort was glorified when at 16th Metro FM Music he bagged the Best Male Album, the Best New Artist, the Best Song of the Year and the Best Hip-Hop Album.
