Fast-forward to the pioneering fusion of the two sounds he claims to have been at the front and centre of, and after making it "okay for rappers to jump on Amapiano", Cassper insists he ought to be given the credit that he is due.
"I was the first one. I had the first hit with Amapiano as a rapper. They dissed me at first, but now that everyone is doing it, nobody wants to talk about that.

Naturally, the tweet has caused a stir online, with a good number of Cass' detractors jumping on the post to share their two cents' worth.
