Cassper Nyovest is in the US for the BET Awards – and some extra business on the side, but what has him trending at the moment is a surprising remark he made during an interview.
During an interview with hip hop reporter Sway, he said that South Africans see him as the Kanye West of the South Africa. Cassper spoke about a number of things, including his relationship with HHP and how America’s influence on the South African hip hop culture.
When asked how important America is to SA artists when Cassper replied: “America is like… uhm… it’s like our home, you know what I mean. It’s like how you see guys see Africa, you wanna go back home? We admire America so much, well the hip hop culture… when we’re out here it’s like we’re coming home, it’s a big deal…”
South Africans took to Twitter to express their frustrations at Cassper’s statement. Confusion abounded as to who referred to him as Kanye of South Africa, and of course they spread the humour.
