Cape Town - Nasty C – real name David Junior Ngcobo – might have to change his stage name after he was reportedly served a cease and desist letter by legal representatives of his former management, Freeworld Music.

Sunday World reported that the letter instructed him to stop using his stage name 'Nasty C' because he did not own the rights to it after leaving them.

Freeworld Music, which represented Nasty C while he was still with his former record label Mabala Noise, said even after having served Nasty C with the letter, he continued to use the name constituting a breach of agreement.  

Following the news, Nasty C posted a cryptic tweet on his Twitter page.

"Got a lotta enemies. Comes with the territory. No coincidence that this happens after such a great run" he said in one tweet.

"It hurts you to see me win.  And I like that sh*t” he continued in another.

Twitter users then began suggesting names he could use instead of Nasty C to the rapper.

Fans however pledged their allegiance to brand Nasty C and came up with such quirky suggestions which the rapper could go by.

Various attempts by Drum to get ahold of Nasty C were not successful at the time of publishing.
