Signed to Def Jam Recordings, South African rap artist Nasty C has revealed he turned down feature requests from revered Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie for reasons he is not proud of today.
During a freestyle on Metro FM’s The Touch Down, Nasty C revealed he turned down two feature requests over the years because he held a grudge against Sarkodie after their first encounter.
According to the Zulu Man with Some Power hitmaker, Sarkodie would not shake his hand the first time they met hence holding a grudge against him and promising never to give him a verse should he grow into a man.
“See, when I first met Sarkodie, he wouldn’t shake my hand…
Cool, I’m not too proud to say I’m still a fan but I held a grudge and told myself to wait till I’m the man..” he rapped.
Nasty C revealed he gave “dump excuses” such as being in an album mode etc. anytime Sarkodie made a feature request was made.
Things are however not the same anymore as Nasty C reveals he would grab any other opportunity Sarkodie throws at him to give his “hardest one yet.”
“…But now I’m over that sh*t and he got all my respect
If he asked me to do a verse again, it’d be my hardest one yet” he said.
He also spoke about how his honest response about not knowing Ghanaian dancehall artist Shatta Wale during media rounds in the country turned out to be twisted by the press.
