Johannesburg - Fans were left in a state of shock, after Cassper Nyovest stormed off stage, at the Back to the City hip-hop festival.

It seems the debacle started after organisers kept Cassper waiting for more than an hour before the rapper could get onto stage.  And, the final straw for Cassper was when his performance, was cut short just before his final song. 

Cassper's DJ delayed the beginning of the song,  to please the crowd, who were begging for more, which led to a standoff between the performer, and the show's organisers.

It wasn't long before the organisers cut the sound to the stage and Cassper stormed off. Cassper later took to Twitter to clarify what happened for his confused fans.

"After being left to hang around backstage for an hour without an apology, an explanation or even even a bottle of water offered to us. They were an hour late & I waited but they couldn't give me 3 more mins," he tweeted,"They coming for me. All I have is the music to save me." 

Cassper was so angry that he stayed behind to time the rest of the acts.

"I was performing my last song and I was cut, at 15 mins. Seconds over my set. Then I stayed and I timed everyone else's performances. Kwesta did 16.30 and Reason did  22.60. They both never had their sound cut and I thought to myself. Kante what's different with me?," he tweeted.

But don't expect the beef to last. Cassper has already raised a peace flag, praising the festival for helping him grow.

"#BTTC2015 is a great event and has been so helpful in growing me year to year. Last night was just difficult. Anyway, we soldier on," he wrote.
