Nasty C says that Amapiano and Afrobeat are better genres than Hip Hop.

The South African star rose to fame through hip hop, and it opened doors for him, linking him to the international world.

Speaking during his Ivyson Gaming Sessions on Twitch, the rapper explained the reason behind his claim.

“I feel like Amapiano and Afrobeat are better than Hip Hop,” Nasty C said. “Okay, let me explain, obviously not all Amapiano songs, obviously not all Afrobeats songs. But, I’m talking about like just in general, I’m talking about the sh*t that goes viral.”

While explaining, he credited Nigerians for delivering dope music videos.

“Live instrument, original melodies n**gas who can actually sing, that’s music dawg. Also if you look at the music video, these n**gas are creative as f*ck and let’s not lie to each other Nigeria has been leading when it comes to music videos for a very long time,” he added.

The rapper further stated why hip hop is not as highly rated as the other genres aforementioned.

“If you look at hip hop, we sample a lot, so that means we don’t have a lot of new original melodies, we’re taking melodies from Jazz, slow jam, Jamaican music, music from here, music from there, Indian music. We’re taking it, we’re flipping it, we’re morphing it,” he said in his comparison.

“I’m not hating on it, I’m not being ungrateful to hip hop, I love these beats, I love hip hop, I am hip hop to the core, I’m hip hop till I die. But the truth is the truth, Afrobeats and Amapiano are better than Hip hop.”

“Music-wise, these songs, are songs, hip hop we’re here playing this weird game where it’s like everyone is fake rich, everyone is fake balling and fake player, everyone is fake gangster. All these hip-hop songs are in disgrace, let’s just be honest,” Nasty C added.
