Cape Town – Cassper Nyovest was in a very reflective mood when an artist gave him a unique gift in Limpopo.

The gift was a clay statue carved in the rapper’s likeness and the artist’s name is Patrice Mabas, who has also made statues of Nelson Mandela, Jacob Zuma and other leaders.

In a post on his Instagram, Cassper said:

“Real music touches real people. Coming to the big city I wanted to make music that would be accepted by the suburban kids cause that's where I lived when I came to the city but I never understood how much power I had just from me coming from the poorest parts of the country. I was never accepted by the "cool kids" as they were called cause I never had the money to dress like them or drive the cars their parents borrowed them on the weekend. Plus I couldn't rap about half the shit they spoke about cause I wasn't that familiar with the lifestyle. I then started rapping about my reality and how much I wanted to live like the upper class. That message was so simple yet so strong cause all we want to do is improve as people. Fast forward I meet an artist in Venda by the name of Patrice Mabasa who made a statue of me from Clay. That shit is priceless and it says to me "Carry on, you bring us hope". I was mad touched by this Gift. I appreciate all the love from my fans and I hope to see y'all in different colors and sizes at #FillUpFnbStadium on the 2nd of December. #FanArt”
