Cassper Nyovest took social media headlines with his comments on his interview with American heavy weight,Live on Sway. During the interview, Cassper Nyovest compared himself to Kanye West and said he is the African Kanye West. Something which did not go down well with South Africans as they took to Twitter to ‘protest’. We, South Africans have NEVER compared Cassper Nyovest to Kanye West.
It did not take long before the news got in the ears of Kanye West himself who then took to Twitter to set the record straight. Yizzy did not mince his words and made sure he disassociates himself with Cassper Nyovest. Even going as far as calling him a week as* rapper.
When asked by interviewer Sway on the influence of American culture on hip hop music in South Africa, the “Doc Shebeleza” hit maker said: “They call me like the Kanye West of South Africa”. He went on to say he’s called Kanye because of being highly creative and pushing boundaries.
Efforts to get comment from Cassper where fruitless at the time of publish.
