Celebrity friendships are known for never lasting long. In fact, the breakdown of the friendship is usually very dramatic – and very public. Cassper Nyovest and Riky Rick’s friendship seems to have headed down that all too familiar path.
If you’re a fan of Mzansi hip hop culture, you would have noticed that Cassper Nyovest and Riky Rick have had a very close friendship. They even went as far as exchanging touching words about one another on stage and on social media. But that bromance seems to have come to an abrupt end because of a possible misunderstanding.
When Riky Rick’s cotton fest line up was announced, many questioned why his friend Cassper Nyovest was excluded, to make it worse, Cassper’s rival, AKA , was in the list of performers.
In a recent interview with Slikour, Riky Rick opened up about the relationship.
“I think you don’t always need to...equity trade and sometimes the situation just doesn’t feel right and for me...somethings are just not for public consumption"
The cryptic response seems to suggest that the pair had a business disagreement which has now affected their friendship. Riky did go on to add that there is a deeper story, but did not disclose it.
“Sometimes there’s a deeper story, but sometimes the deeper story doesn’t have to come from anybody…”
Cassper took to social media to express his thoughts on being excluded from the Cotton fest. He said that he had no beef with Riky – they were just not talking anymore.
If you missed the Cotton Fest over the weekend, don't stress. Briefly.co.za has a full report with many photos and videos of Riky Rick’s very successful event. It was a special treat for fans of hip-hop and rap.
