Rapper Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo, better known by his stage name Nasty C, has revealed his big toe secret with fans on social media.
In a YouTube video, the young rapper can be seen seated with his friend, who hadn’t a clue about what was happening, Nasty C admitted that he had been hiding a deformity on his toe. The rapper has an extra toe, which is conjoined to his big toe.
According to healthline.com “a hammer toe is a deformity that causes your toe to bend or curl downward instead of pointing forward. This deformity can affect any toe on your foot. It most often affects the second or third toe.“
“This is something that I’ve been hiding from pretty much everybody, it’s something I had to grow up with. Part of the reason I hid it from everyone is because I wanted to leave that part of my life in the past,” he said.
The rapper said he’s not the only one who is different and he’s not the only one who was teased as a kid. It hurt him as a kid and he would cry sometimes.
The 22-year-old rapper also encouraged people to accept and love themselves the way the are.
“Accept yourself, love yourself, be you. You’re uniquely you; God made you like that [and] whether you think it’s imperfect or not, you are perfect, that’s how God made you, that’s how you’re supposed to be.”
“If you’ve got something that you’re hiding from people because you’re scared [that] you might be judged, picked on laughed at…I understand what’s like, and it’s ok to be afraid. I’m not saying that you should come out now and show the world what you’re about now…but take your time, be patient with yourself, learn to love yourself, learn to accept yourself for who you are and when you’re ready, show the world,” he said.
