Rapper Nasty C has signed a recording deal with Universal Music after almost 2 years with Mabala Noise. The ‘Hell Naw’ rapper took to social media on Thursday to confirm that he had joined Universal.
“By the way I’m Universal Music now,” he declared, in a picture of him posing alongside TV screens carrying his image and the company’s logo.

Nasty C joined Mabala Noise in 2016, after apparently turning down a deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation. He was unveiled alongside Gigi Lamayne, Riky Rick, Khanyi Mbau and Lvovo- many of which have since left the company.
The diminutive MC is also said to be planning to relocate to the U.S. to pursue his career.
