Cassper Nyovest Says SA Rappers Must Produce New Music Instead of Worrying About Amapiano’s Popularity

  • Cassper Nypvest took to Twitter to express his frustration with people's opinions of South African hip-hop following Amapiano's international success
  • The talented rapper, like the Fela in Versace hitmaker AKA, have said that they are unconcerned about Amapino's popularity as long as Mzansi music is recognised, regardless of genre
  • Netizens have come out with differing opinions on this one with some dragging Cassper for jumping on Amapiano but encouraging the other rappers to keep producing Hip hop

Cassper Nyovest has recently found inspiration in everything around him. First, he said he got inspiration for Fill Up 2022, and now he says Amapiano has inspired him to put out more rap music.
