All is set for Nasty C’s maiden “Change a Life Concert” which is pencilled for Wingate Golf Club on Saturday courtesy of the Alfred Dondo Foundation in conjunction with Impala Car Rental.
The 21-year-old South African rapper is expected in the country on Saturday for a charity gig meant to benefit students from marginalised communities of Sadza and Chikomba districts of Chivhu.
“On Friday we are expecting Ammara while Nasty C will arrive on the day of the event,” one of the concert organisers and Impala’s brand and projects manager Tracy Ngoma said.
Nasty C, who made it into SA Hip Hop Magazine’s Top 10 African Rappers in 2016 together with Takura, Emtee, Mozambican Laylizzy, Cassper Nyovest, AKA, Sarkodie, Nigerian Phyno and MHD will share the stage with Jah Prayzah, Ammara Brown, King98, Takura, Ex Q and Dj Silence Dosh.
