He also said he drew inspiration from rap artists in his home country, such as the late AKA and Cassper Nyovest.
The 26-year-old disclosed this in a podcast interview with Afrozons.
He said, “My pioneers for hip-hop in Africa in no order are M.I, Sakordie, Olamide, Phyno, AKA, Cassper [Nyovest], Naeto C… There’s so many.”
Self-styled “Coolest Kid in Africa”, Nasty C is regarded as one of the most commercially successful rappers on the continent.
He has collaborated with several Nigerian artists, including Burna Boy, Runtown and Davido.
