Rapper, Cassper Nyovest has fired up a conversation on Twitter that left fans divided.
Cassper has gone onto the social media site to express how South African artists are not united and the industry itself does not respect the artists. His comments follow the champion work and collaborations been executed by Nigerian artists like Wizkid, Burna Boy and more.

“Too gone. We could have the same thing but nah, we would rather fight amongst ourselves and cut down our airplay to cut the reach. Disrepect our own sound and artists. That’s our vibe here. Niggas not playing your music cause they don’t like you, you know? Those vibes. We lost!”, Cassper posted.

 

 

Further to that, the rapper has described the cold shoulder he has recently been getting when trying to reach out for collaborations with local artists.

“Tried. Niggas ignoring my phone calls and Dms. Nobody wants to fuck with each other ouchea. It’s all Egos. Who gone make it on his own? Thats the race we running in SA.”

But what swayed the conversation to a different direction is when Cassper shared that he wished he was Nigerian, because he felt he would receive more love and support from fans.

This has left fans angry as they feel like the rapper is selfish and is not appreciative of the love and support masses have shown him here in South Africa.

“Won’t even lie. I wish i was from Nigeria too. The love they have for thier own artists, the way they celebrate their culture, 90% local content on radio and Tv, there way they celebrate their music no matter where they are in the world, the unity within thier industry. A DREAM! “

 

 

Followers on Twitter including artists like AKA and Ice Prince have commented on the statement by Cassper with a bunch of tweets standing proud for South Africa.
