CASSPER NYOVEST TALKS ABOUT HOW AKA’S TWEETS ALMOST AFFECTED HIS SAMSUNG DEAL

Photo by: twitter (2019)

Cassper Nyovest took to Slikour’s couch to discuss his new album A.M.N(Any Minute Now), and both his professional and personal relationships. He opened up and answered questions that have been burning the masses, even answered the ones that the masses had no idea they wanted to know. The interview was trending at number two on Youtube and its views amounted to eighty thousand within seventy two hours of its release.

Cassper mentioned that AKA’s tweets where his rival(AKA)was swearing at his parents, referring to Cassper’s father as a “deadbeat father”, AKA went as far as insulting his manhood and sexuality. The CEO of Samsung branch in South Africa thought it was him posting the tweets after the news went viral. The elderly gentleman being unfamiliar with the social media space then saw swear words in Cassper’s name without understanding that AKA was coming at Cassper, But the misunderstanding was quickly resolved.

The Doc Shebeleza hit maker announced early last year that he had teamed with Samsung South Africa as their brand ambassador. The rapper’s deal was estimated to amount to R25 million. The tech giant were also the headline sponsor of Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up Royal Bafokeng annual concert.

“I was just just on the phone with his manager about the date of the fight” Casper said referring to AKA’s manger.

He went on to press that the fight is not about promoting his album but it’s indeed a personal thing

“What I want to do is fight” Cassper said twenty minutes into the interview.

Cassper Nyovest threw shots at AKA’S boxing skills saying that the videos he shares on social media showing the public his training are not boxing. He even showed a nine seconds snippet of him boxing to Slikour comparing it to AKA’s. He equated the rival’s boxing skills to those of the South African actress and film-maker, Connie Ferguson, and even associated AKA’s boxing with the adjective “sexy”.

“Connie Ferguson does that stuff” Cassper took a hit at AKA’s boxing skills.

Eight minutes into the interview the award winning rapper admitted that he was confused, disappointed and hurt by the Ricky Rick situation. The effects of their beef went as far as hurting Cassper’s mother as she took Ricky Rick as son of her own.

During the crafting of his second album, Refiloe, Cassper admits he was battling with heavy depression and anxiety, and that album is by far the hardest body of work he has had to complete. The depression and anxiety induced feelings of suicide and caused a number of sleepless nights for the public figure which influenced the song 1 on 1 on his new album, where he first opened up and spoke about his suicidal thoughts.

https://images.dstv.co.za/media/17846/peoples-choice-2020.jpg?

The 2020 E! People’s choice 46th annual awards graced our screens here in Mzansi on November 15th, channel 124 on DSTV. The anticipated award show announced its nominees in September 2020, leaving the general public with over one month to vote in their favourite entertainer in popular culture. The show was hosted by the lovely Demi Lovato and broadcasted live from Santa Monica, California.

Some stars from our continent are Dimma Umeh all the way from Nigeria, actress Lydia Forson from Ghana and of course the Kenyan internet sensation Elsa Majimbo who kept the world in stitches amidst the global pandemic with her witty jokes. Elsa Majimbo who has bagged the African Social Star award, received the news at the comfort of her home in Nairobi via an online video which was shared on Instagram by E! at which she clearly could not hold her delight, showing her usual bright smile and famous quirky laugh just with less shade this time (literally).

The star recently featured on Vogue magazine issue where she dived deeper explaining matters of colourism- how they affected her whilst growing up and; how the shaded glasses she always rocks in the videos landed her a gift of Rihanna’s newest Fenty collection glasses as a token of appreciation. A big congratulations to Elsa Majimbo. Indeed hard-work and passion combined can take you where your wildest dreams couldn’t.

It came as no surprise that our gorgeous reigning Miss Universe Zozi Tunzi amongst the effervescent Sho Madjozi, the multi-talented Thuso Mbedu, model & media star, Karl Kugelmann and TikTok star Wian van den Berg were the top selected in Mzansi- nominated for the African Social Stars. Although neither of them brought the award home, we send a huge congratulations to them for being recognised on such a significant world platform.

Give us your thoughts on who would you have liked to see win and do you think this is a deserved win for the Kenyan star?
