Nasty C Reveals The Real Reason He Punched a Fan in Zambia
Nasty C recently addressed the incident where he punched a fan in Zambia during a performance. The incident went viral online last Sunday, causing a stir among fans.
The Coolest Kid In Africa rapper sparked outrage after he lost his cool while on stage and punched a fan in Zambia.
Nasty C is currently on tour with fellow rapper Cassper Nyovest, called the African Throne World Tour. On September 8th, they were in Botswana, and on the 9th, they arrived in Zambia to entertain the crowd.
Their tour has already taken them to Kenya, Rwanda, Mozambique, and Eswatini, with plans to perform in nine more countries, including Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Nigeria, England, and the United Arab Emirates.
On September 9th, Nasty C and Cassper Nyovest performed at NASDEC in Lusaka, Zambia, dedicating their show to the late hip-hop superstar AKA, who was tragically shot in February this year.
During Nasty C’s performance, an enthusiastic fan breached the event security and rushed onto the stage to hug the rapper. Nasty C reacted by punching the fan, who was then subdued by security personnel.
Nasty C later explained his actions on Nandi Madida’s Apple Music show, Africa Now, attributing his reaction to paranoia. He expressed regret for his impulsive response, saying:
“Yeah, I think it’s just that constant paranoia, man, of not knowing who you can trust. Plus you gotta think too, all the energy is all the way through the roof, tension, there’s nerves behind me getting on stage, there’s just all these things that are going on at the same time you know. And I get out there, I can barely see anything, I’m wearing shades, I’m being blinded by all these lights and I just see someone run up on me, you know my natural instinct is to fight back. And it is just very unfortunate, I wish it hadn’t happened that way but at the time I wasn’t really thinking, it was just natural instincts man.”
In other news, Nasty C and Cassper Nyovest both released albums on the same day. Cassper Nyovest’s album, “Solomon,” carries a heartfelt tribute to his late rival, rapper AKA. Nasty C’s album “I Love It Here” also has a tribute to all the late rappers.
