The year Cassper Nyovest made history
He did it! (Instagram)
Johannesburg - Last year this time Cassper Nyovest was a relative newcomer to the industry.
But fast-forward to the end of 2015, and Cassper is a name that is widely recognised - not just on home soil, but across Africa and abroad.
Mr Shebeleza has managed to rise above many challenges including the public feud between him and nemesis, AKA. The year started off on a rocky slate with the feud between him and AKA gaining momentum.
They both even released so-called diss tracks firing shots at each other. But Cassper’s motto throughout the year has been to remain humble, put God first and focus on his dreams.
This saw the rapper make history to become the first SA artist to fill up the 20 000 seater, Ticketpro Dome. When Cassper first announced that he wanted to fill up the dome, people ridiculed him and told him it was not possible.
However, Cassper believed in himself and with that proved everyone wrong. Like all other celebrities Cassper has faced challenges, which included being slapped by AKA. Cassper chose not to resort to violence or promote it- instead turned the cheek. So yes, he had a bit of a moment with all those Beyonce comments, but overall his career has soared.
What will 2016 bring? Well, his bae tells us he is a big dreamer who believes in himself, so watch this space.
