SA's Nyovest hungers for Zim gig

HARARE - Cassper Nyovest, widely regarded as South Africa’s biggest hip-hop artist, has issued a come-and-get-me plea to Zimbabwean music promoters.

The rap star, who tops the nominations list of this year’s Channel O Music Video Awards along with Nigeria’s Davido, has taken to twitter to express his interest in performing in Zimbabwe.

On September 26, Cassper Nyovest, whose debut album Tsholofelo has broken several sales records in South Africa, tweeted: “I see a lot of love from Zimbabwe. We need to make a plan, connect me with a promoter or something.”

To emphasise his desire to perform in this country, the Doc Shebeleza singer tweeted again on the matter later that day.

“I need to hit Zimbabwe soon man!”

Cassper Nyovest’s tweets attracted several interested responses from some Zimbabweans on Twitter.

Born Refiloe Maele Phoolo, Cassper Nyovest released his first official single Gusheshe last year before dropping his explosive debut album Tsholofelo in July this year.

At last year’s South Africa Hip-hop Awards, he won four awards mostly for the song Gusheshe.

This year has seen Cassper Nyovest, who dropped out of school in 2006 aged 15-emerge as one of Africa’s leading hip hop stars. The South African rapper got five nominations in this year’s Channel O Music Video Awards along with Nigeria’s Davido and fellow South African hip-hop artiste K.O.
