Cassper Nyovest may forgive all his colleagues who made his life miserable when he began this journey, but he will never forget the pain they caused him.
Speaking to DJ Sbu on Massiv Metro yesterday, the Mama I Made It rapper said he was made the ‘laughing stock’ by those who felt he was beneath them, that they wrote diss tracks about him, but he did not let their hate bring him down. Instead, he channeled all that energy into making better music, gaining more fans.
“I will never forget when I was the laughing stock, when they were writing diss tracks about me. I used that as fuel to succeed. We can shake hands but I will never forget,” said the rapper on the radio.
And explaining how he endured the hate, he said, “People would say, ‘you didn’t finish school’ and I would tell them; ‘yeah, but I have R10-million.’”
Now, he doesn’t need to brag about his wealth, because has become the first rapper in South Africa to fill up a major arena without international backing. His haters have yet to achieve this feat!
This comes two weeks after he disgraced rapper AKA who publicly begged to be featured at his upcoming Johannesburg stadium gig.
Recall that AKA had dissed Cassper for years, shamed him on Twitter, mocked him at every point and even once said he would not make peace with Cassper. But earlier this month, AKA took to Twitter to beg Cassper, saying that he wants to put an end to their over-stretched feud that had rocked South Africa for too long. He asked to be featured at Cassper’s major upcoming concert, saying he wants to make money and make peace.
But Cassper refused.
“If [AKA] wants to help, he needs to buy tickets and attend the show,” said Cassper. “As far as the performances, best believe we got that covered. Trust me.”
We now know why Cassper said a loud ‘no’ to AKA; he will never forget how much pain AKA and his ilk caused him.
