Cassper To Appear In US AM Radio

22 June 2016
Rapper Cassper Nyovest is set to become the first South African rapper to perform on the popular US hip-hop morning radio show Sway In The Morning.

The rapper will sit down with the legendary show at around 7:30pm, South African time on Wednesday.

Making the announcement to his fans on Snapchat, Cassper revealed that he is nervous ahead of the show.

"I'm doing Sway In The Morning, in the morning. I'm so nervous. Hopefully I remember all my rhymes," he said.

Cassper reveals his nerves come from him feeling the pressure to represent his country and continent.

There's so much pressure because I am the first South African rapper to do Sway In The Morning and I feel like I have to do my country proud and not let my continent down," he told fans.

Cassper's appearance on the morning show follows that of DJ Ms Cosmo who performed a special set for the show when she was in New York earlier this month.

Local rapper Reason also had his song Yipikayay played on the show last month.
