- South African rapper Cassper Nyovest is once again attempting to launch his highly-anticipated sneaker collection
- The rapper was forced to postpone the event a few weeks ago, after President Ramaphosa put the country into Level 4 lockdown
- It seems the rapper and his business partner have worked out a way around the regulations and will be pushing forward with the event this Thursday
Cassper Nyovest has announced that he will be launching his first sneaker from the R100 million Drip Footwear deal. The rapper was left disappointed last month when the country went into lockdown, forcing him to delay the event.
Now it seems he’s ready for the second take and will be launching the product this coming Thursday, 8 July.
Taking to his personal social media account, he posted:
“I’m so f*cking hapoy!!! It’s now official. My first Sneaker will be dropping this Thursday. I am inviting you all to the #RootOfFameConference Thursday 18:00 . It’ll be a live streamed event and we will show the product and the name for the shoe for the very first time. Who is joining us? @rootoffame.”
Cassper has had plans of releasing his own sneakers for a very long time. It has been 4 years since the rapper launched his first Family Tree merchandise and now he gets to introduce the first merchandise of the Legacy deal.
Briefly News had previously reported that Cassper almost broke the internet when he announced signing the deal worth millions.
