Multi-platinum selling rapper, Refiloe Maele Phoolo, known to South Africans as Cassper Nyovest, is the epitome of success.
Nyovest, who wears his heart on his sleeve, often shares his life struggles and stories of his humble beginnings in interviews, and in his lyrics.
The rapper was born and raised in Mahikeng, a town in the North West Province, South Africa. After failing grade 10, he made the brave decision to drop out of school to move to Johannesburg, and pursue his career as a rapper and producer. He often speaks of his younger sister, Tsholofelo, who gave him R50 to catch a taxi from Mahikeng to Johannesburg to pursue his dreams. As a thank-you, the successful muso, who was discovered by the Late Motswako legend, Hip Hop Panstula, named his first album after her.
Since the release of his first album, the Doc Shebeleza hitmaker has not been shy about showing off his growing wealth and lavish lifestyle on social media.
Briefly.co.za learned that the Mahikeng native, who is said to own over R6 million worth of cars, his own record label and a massive home in the Johannesburg Northern Suburbs, can often be seen posing with his goodies.
As if that wasn’t enough to leave fans inspired and some a little green with envy, Nyovest bought a second Bentley to accompany his first.
Being uber successful does come with its problems. The multimillionaire rapper constantly has to defend his wealth on social media.
He’s not lying. According to The Net Worth Portal, Cassper Nyovest is one of the top five richest musicians in South Africa, with a 2018 net worth just shy of R10 million.
He may be flashy, but time and time again Cassper Nyovest has proven that he is an example of how focus and sheer determination to achieve one’s dreams will lead to extraordinary success.
