Zulu Man in Japan (2019)
This documentary gives fans a glimpse into their much loved Durban-born rapper. Nasty C shares in some of the humbling parts of his Japanese escape, the normalcy and simplicity his celebrity doesn’t afford him in Africa.
“I felt safe on the streets, I took the cab, I felt normal and I loved that experience.” said the Palm Trees star. The kindness of the locals is one of the things that stood out for him, he says, even with the language barrier.
Captured by Chris Nicols, the award-winning Durbanite is seen living carefree and collaborating with some of Japan’s hottest music acts, which include JP The Wavey and Ricky and Yoshi.
From high-end fashion to his fulfilling encounters with creatives in Japan’s entertainment and music industries, Nasty C shares his experiences with Nigerian-American designer Ugo Mozie, actor Rakan Abdulwahid and his manager Colin Gayle, who co-directed the project with Nhlakanipho Teddy Mkhize.
