    Cassper Gets US Radio Acclamation

    South Africa’s hip hop recording rapper Cassper Nyovest‘s stock and reputation are both at an all-time high, not only in Mzansi but across the globe. This week he got a shout out on a radio show in the United States of America.

    He was not just commended by any old radio folks either. The Mafikeng born rapper found himself being the topic of discussion between Charlamagne The God and legendary producer Swizz Beatz on Power 105.1’s hit show, The Breakfast Club based in New York City

    The two hip hop enthusiasts, alongside DJ Envy, conversed the importance of adapting DJ sets in different territories and South Africa was mentioned as an instance.

    DJ Envy began by saying, “Those days when you play different shows overseas whether you’re in Japan or South Africa or Africa, and you go you DJ and you played all New York or Hip Hop music. But now you play like 10% of that but you playing South African music like you’re playing their artists!”

    Charlamagne continued the conversation by adding that when he was in South Africa, Cassper Nyovest “Killed it” when he performed after Ed Sheeran but before Jay Z and Beyonce as a co-headliner.

    Swizz Beatz added to the “And he killed it more than everybody. It’s his town!” Although Mafikeng is his town, we get the point Swizz was making; at the moment in time, Cassper Nyovest was the monarch of the Jungle (cue Mufasa jokes) and nobody was willing to dispute it.

    After noticing the mention, Cassper Nyovest showed love and appreciation to Charlamagne and Swizz Beatz for recognizing his influence in Mzansi. He posted the video of The Breakfast Club with the captions on his twitter page:

    “Shout out to .@THEREALSWIZZZ and Charlamagne for the mention on the breakfast club yesterday. LOVE! AFRICA TIME!!!”

    It seems it was a long way from the days when Charlamagne didn’t know Cassper and simply referred to him as “some artist from Africa”. Currently, it seems American rappers are starting to get thrilled about featuring on South Africa’s radio stations.
