South African rapper, self-styled Zulu Man With Some Power, Nasty C has had a really great couple of years, and 2020 was an especially good year for the emcee/ producer/ record label owner from KwaZulu-Natal.

While of course he's had his fair share of feuds, haters and naysayers, there is one rapper who understands Nasty's loading GOAT status: AKA. The SupaMega has always sung Nasty's praises.

But for some, AKA might have taken it a bit too far when he likened Nasty to the late and great Pro Kid. The rapper whose real name is Linda Mkhize, lost his life two years ago on August 8, 2018. His music still lives on beyond his time and when you look at the Hip Hop fraternity in the country, his influence is very evident.

Nasty C has had one of the best years of his career this year. From signing with an international record label company to releasing a very successful album Zulu Man With Some Power, he even has a documentary on Netflix called Zulu Man in Japan and a documentary with Apple Music called Origins: the 23-year-old is definitely on a roll.

The rapper left many amazed when he signed a major deal with American record label, Def Jam Recordings. This alliance was made possible through a joint venture with Universal Music Africa. Nasty even got his own Spotify Billboard all the way in Times Square in New York.

There has never been any bad blood between the Bhovamania rapper and Nasty C. AKA being the one with the most experience advised Nasty to not conform and do whatever he wants. Supa Mega responding to a tweet told Nasty C "Don’t make the same mistake as me...do WHATEVER. THE FUXK. YOU WANT." The two rappers have had quite the relationship over the years but have maintained some respect for each other throughout it all.

Now, Bhova shook the internet when he compared the two rappers. The internet was not impressed with the comparison saying they both big in their own ways.

"If you think about it ... isn’t Nasty C the 2020 Pro Kid?" he asked. "Nasty is a solidified God in my eyes ALONE on the strength of the walls he’s tryna knock down," he added.

He even ran a poll that has received over 18K votes. Pro Kid is leading but AKA still remains adamant that Nasty is of the same league as he was.
