South African rapper Nasty C is all about body positivity and embracing all your flaws. He recently took to Twitter to share one of his biggest insecurities, his webbed toes.
The rapper says it took so much courage to reveal his condition to his fans. All in all, he wanted people to accept themselves for who they are and encouraged them to love themselves. “Accept yourself, love yourself, you are uniquely you. God made you that like that way, whether you think you are perfect or not, you are perfect,” he shared.
The rapper said he was able to hide his insecurity for many years and that it was unfortunate because he never accepted himself enough or completely. “I did not love myself a 100 percent, I was expecting people to give me some sort of validation,” he said. He said he considered getting an operation but won’t be going through with it anymore because the abnormality is something that reminds him of his mom who passed away while he was still young.
Syndactyly, a condition that causes webbed or fused toes or fingers, is one of the most common types of birth abnormality. Researchers do not understand precisely why webbed digits develop, but, in some cases, there is a definite genetic cause.
