Johannesburg - On Monday President Jacob Zuma sent his praise to hip-hop star, Cassper Nyovest after he was the first South African musician to fill up the Ticketpro dome.

But speaking on Talk Radio 702 on Monday night, Cassper says that initially he thought the reports were fake.

"It was completely unexpected. I thought it was fake. There are so many fake stories on the net," he explained.

Cassper says that he had actually invited Zuma to the event, but he declined due to a busy schedule. It was only when Sports Minister, Fikile Mbalula sent him a copy of the statement from the presidency did he realise it was legit.

"That statement meant the world to me. It meant that I did something for me country. I had used my talent to inspire. It's a special moment for South African hip-hop that our president can say something about us," he added.
