Rapper Nasty C might have a thriving career and a classic “bad boy rapper” persona, but like the rest of us, he has his own insecurities to deal with. And he recently took to social media to share an important message about self-love, self-acceptance and body image with his fans.
So there’s something I’ve been meaning to share with my fans This is a big moment & step for me & it took a lot of courage for me to shoot & share this with you. I hope that it helps anybody that relates -to find this kind of self-love & self-acceptance.https://t.co/wltSrRxDWv

In the video, which is almost 8 minutes long, the rapper talks about how this secret has made him feel over the years, revealing that even his girlfriend has only seen it once before. The video focusses a lot on the importance of accepting everything about yourself, even if you’re scared of what others might think, before revealing what the big secret is.
Around the 2-minute mark, he removes his sock to reveal a large big toe. He shares that he was able to hide this “special toe” from a lot of people so that he didn’t have to deal with bullying. But he admits that he didn’t allow himself to accept and love himself completely – until now.
The video, which has already been viewed more than 185 000 times, is an important reminder that we all have a “special toe” – a secret insecurity – that’s keeping us from loving ourselves completely. It’s also a reminder that you’re allowed to let go of that insecurity and give yourself permission to free yourself from the judgment of others in favour of self-love.
More of this, please.
