Johannesburg – Speaking to The Juice about his quest to fill FNB Stadium, Cassper says this show will be different to the ones before. 

The rapper, who is now on a low-carb diet, says he is also back in the gym to gear up for the event. With regards to the concert itself, he tells us the show is going to be very "theatrical." "The theme of FNB Stadium for this year is Mufasa. The Lion King. I’m Mufasa, so people should come and check it out."

Cassper says the show may even bring some people to tears. "This is a very touching story, and some people might cry, but a lot of people will be inspired by the story."

Explaining why the tickets are so cheap, the muso says it’s because he’s fans range widely in terms of income bracket. “I reach out to the poorest of poor, and I also reach out to the richest of rich.” He adds: “I know that there’s some people who want to go out there and be comfortable,  they can pay 500 bucks and go in Golden Circle, and then I know there’s some people who have to save for three months for 100 bucks.” 

Speaking about the challenges he’s facing this time round, the muso says lack of funds is an issue.  “The biggest challenge with Fill Up FNB Stadium is that we have no money to work with. We don’t have any sponsor, so we literally figuring out every week. Every show we do we take that money, throw it into the show. We makig it work, you know.” 

Cassper says their still appealing to sponsors or people with money to assist in making the show a success. 

#FillUpFnbStadium takes place on 2, December. Tickets are available at Computicket.
