Cassper the game changer

29 October 2015
Game Changer
Cassper Nyovest is the poster boy for Mzansi hip hop's glory days, a game changer. Here's why:

This venue has previously been seen as the type of space that only international acts could fill up. Local artists would be relegated to "opening acts" and this was somewhat the standard, the status quo. Not until your boy Cassper dared to dream!

Platinum Sales
The last time an artist in this genre clocked platinum sales it was Pitch Black Afro with Styling Gel back in 2005. His debut album "Tsholofelo" not only changed that, it also went onto pile up many awards, endorsements and gigs literally all over the world.

A tracklist on steroids
Mahotella Queens, The Game, Cassey Veggies, DJ Drama...Cassper's upcoming album "Refiloe" features a mix of artists that are unlikely to be found on one CD. An interesting omission though was D'Banj. He posted about working on some stuff with him on his social media while he was in Lasgidi. Maybe that music is still to be released.

One album, multiple awards
Every local major music related awards ceremony in the past year or so has Cassper on its winners list. He also boasts the Most Gifted Male, Most Gifted Southern and Most Gifted Video of the year from the Channel O Music Awards.
