South African rap musician Nasty C, who is signed to Def Jam Recordings, has disclosed that he rejected feature requests from famed Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie for reasons he is not proud of today.
Nasty C said during a freestyle on Metro FM’s The Touch Down that he turned down two feature offers over the years because he had a grudge towards Sarkodie after their initial meeting.

According to the Zulu Man with Some Power hitmaker, Sarkodie refused to shake his hand the first time they met, leaving him with resentment and pledging never to give him a verse if he grew into a man.
“See, when I first met Sarkodie, he wouldn’t shake my hand…
Cool, I’m not too proud to say I’m still a fan but I held a grudge and told myself to wait till I’m the man..” he rapped.
Nasty C said that whenever Sarkodie made a feature request, he offered “dump reasons” such as being in album mode, etc.
Things aren’t the same anymore, as Nasty C says he’d take every other chance Sarkodie gives him to deliver his “hardest one yet.”
“…But now I’m over that sh*t and he got all my respect. If he asked me to do a verse again, it’d be my hardest one yet” he said.
