It’s no secret that what Cassper Nyovest achieved over this past weekend is definitely for the Hip Hop history books.
A number of people have come out to congratulate the rapper on his success but who knew that the president would come out and congratulate a local Hip Hop act?
President Jacob Zuma congratulated the rapper in a Presidency statement shared by Cassper which reads: “Jacob Zuma has extended his words of congratulation and encouragement to South African local hip hop artist‚ Cassper Nyovest‚ on being the first musician to fill the 20000-seating capacity Dome in Northgate‚ Johannesburg‚ without the assistance of any international act”.
“We congratulate Cassper Nyovest for his tremendous success which has demonstrated the rich talent that exists within our country’s music industry especially amongst our youth.
“Cassper has also confirmed the enormous support for local music by our youth‚ which augurs well for the development of our arts‚ culture and heritage.”
