Nasty C Records Career Milestone With “Strings And Blings” Album

South African rapper Nasty C has just recorded another career milestone with reports that his album “Strings and Bling” is the first South African hip hop album to reach 20 million streams on Spotify.

To some critics, the songster has vanished from visibility and relevance following his relocation to the United States, but it’s clear the Coolest Kid in Africa is still musically relevant.

A Twitter account that purports to share the news about the South African rapper’s charting projects broke the news of the milestone in a recent tweet.

Nasty C hasn’t said anything about the recently – certainly not on his and not at the time of writing – but if he’s aware of the milestone, he’ll certainly be chuffed with it.

The songster had relocated to the United States following his signing to Def Jam. South Africans have been divided about his move to the States, with some calling it a positive for his career.

However, his critics are saying he’s becoming irrelevant at home, and that posing with known faces in American rap does not translate to a major impact on the music scene.

Will his Spotify milestone change that perception? We’re watching and will bring you more details.
