Cape Town - There’s less than a month to go before Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up FNB Stadium concert and in an interview with Masechaba Ndlovu on Metro FM‘s The Drive with MoFlava and Masechaba, the Mafikeng rapper declared himself broke: “I’m broke, I don’t have money”.

Cassper said he’d spent so much money on the concert that two of his employees have yet to be paid and he was looking to sell one of his luxury cars. “I was going to sell one of my cars to a guy, but he had a family emergency and he couldn't buy the car.”

Cassper said the show cost him R15 million to put together and the stage alone was R5,2 million.

“The show does not make money. We don’t make a profit; I’m investing in the industry and the name Cassper Nyovest. In time I will be amongst the greatest although I didn't make enough money to show it.” 

He went on to say he wants the show to inspire people to do great things, to invest in their talents and to build a legacy.

“Sometimes I feel like maybe I should stop investing so much in my craft and buy a Rolls Royce but I think I wouldn't be as far as I am if I didn't respect my craft,” he says. 

Years back Cassper’s first show only had 12 attendees, then 20 000 fans showed up for Fill Up Orlando Stadium, and he’s looking to fill up FNB with 75 000 people. 

Tickets for the 2 December gig, Fill Up FNB Stadium, are available at Computicket. Tickets range from R100 to R500.
