The SMA hitmaker has amassed over 20 million Spotify streams since the album’s debut.
This is the first time a South African hip-hop record has done so!
Nasty C’s sophomore album, Strings and Bling, was released in 2018. Rowlene, Kaien Cruz, and American rapper A$AP Ferg were among the many guests on the 17-track album.
In May of this year, the album was certified platinum and won the Best Hip-Hop Album award at the South African Music Awards (Samas).
His smash hit SMA featuring Rowlene was nominated for Record of the Year the same year.

A Nasty C charts account took to Twitter on Wednesday 2 February to share that Strings And Bling had achieved over 20 million streams on Spotify. This comes after Nasty C’s, Zulu mixtape with DJ WhooKid hit the same milestone on Audiomack.
The award-winning album is the first South African hip-hop album to achieve this.
Actress Pearl Thusi congratulated her “baby brother” on the major milestone.
One fan wrote: “I still stream this album! Man, great work from the guy.”
“This album is one of the best albums we’ve had as a country,” wrote another fan.
Since releasing his single Jack in June 2021, Nasty C has collaborated with his DJ AudioMarc and Blxckie on Why Me? And Young Kay PTA.
The rapper has been quiet about his next move, but SA hip-hop fans are crossing fingers for a new album from the rap star.
His last album Zulu Man With Some Power was released in 2020. The award-winning album features American rappers TI, Lil Gotit, Lil Keed and R&B songstress Ari Lennox.
