For anyone not in the loop, Nigeria is currently going through political unrest as citizens of the country are currently protesting against SARS. And no, this is not the South African Revenue Service but The Nigeria version of SARS, is not like out version of the South African Revenue Services where all the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). 

So when Nasty C attempted to use his platform to bring light to the matter and show solidarity for the people of Nigeria, South Africans were not having. The ridicule was especially propagated by the social media led movement of the #PutSouthAfricansFirst movement. This is movement of people that are asking the South Africans a prioritized in South Africa. The sentiments are made at the back of suggestions the illegal and legal immigrants that live in South Africa are “taking over,” with South Africans being sidelined for economic and employment opportunities.

The country to receive the better part of the brunt is Nigeria. The history between the two has been less than pretty; think AKA and Burna Boy and the animosity between the two, and than think of it as a rivalry between countries. Moreover, the fact that thinking about the inner cities like Hilbrow, Berea, and Sunnyside, and the running narrative that the cities have been taken over by Nigerians than you can imagine how passionate the #PutSouthAfricansFirst gang is. 

So following the first post, Nasty C tried to speak up with his chest against the criticism that he allegedly has not shown the same passion about South African plights. Despite attempting to show that he is not intimidated, that merely just fueled the backlash even further. Some of the comments were from tweeps and trolls stating that because of the tweets they were going to cancel Nasty C. Some music listeners went as far as “deleting” the music they had downloaded from the “Zulu Man With Some Power.”
In attempt to show that he is unfazed by the backlash, he returned to Twitter to tell people to chill. It is unclear if Nasty C knew what he was doing, but it soon after that post was filled with people ready to drag baby boy some more. And the drags were more fiery than the previous posts, with trolls attempting to clean the floor with Nasty C. That has since been his last tweet.
