Approval is critical to an artiste’s life, and may even count as a statistic in his ratings and even his hold on fame.
And beyond approval from others, one also has to approve of oneself and and think highly of his own star. Well, if one doesn’t know one’s worth and think highly of oneself, who will do that?
Probably no one. Or maybe just a few. Well, most artistes aren’t the whole approval thing and the brilliance of their stars wholly for the public to judge. They bring the public to a consciousness of their worth as musicians, although sometimes they may be thought arrogant for so doing.Source: Nasty C/ Instagram
“Strings and Bling” hitmaker Nasty C, who made the list of 100 mlost influential Africans recently, and who was recently describes by Nigeria’s Starboy Wizkid as the best rapper in Africa, is one artiste who thinks highly of his own star, and is not afraid to say so.
The rapper, who rapper Boity co-opted in her debut single “Wuz Dat,” took to Twitter recently to make a point about the quality of his work. He tweeted, as a response to an argument about the best hip hop albums on a global scale: “Only Scorpion competes. I’m a fan of Em, Cole & Nas. But their albums aren’t better than mine. Put status aside.”
This effectively puts in among the top hip hop guns in the world. The world may soon think so, and it would be to Mzansi’s glory.
We can’t wait to see this happen.
