It's no surprise that he has been using the age old method of collaborations to achieve this. Artists collaborate with each other to introduce themselves to other fan bases. So, if an artist with a small or new fan base collaborates with a mainstream artist, they could blow up.
Nasty C knows this to be true as it was a collaboration that skyrocketed his career. The country first got to know him when he collaborated with Cassper and Davido on the Gemini Major produced smash hit, "Juice Back". He has since had smash hit singles with global acts like A$AP Ferg and Major Lazer.
It seems that the coolest kid in Africa isn't done bringing his fans more bangers, he recently posted this picture on his Instagram.
For those of you who live under a rock, that's international superstar, Big Sean.
They're clearly in the studio and maybe it's just us but they look like they're really proud of what they've done.
