Cassper said that he was sad to make the realisation that he's one of the musos who haven't given the rightful credit to the genre that was made popular by artists like Khuli Chana, HHP and Morage Mo Molemi.

"Motswako was the gateway for many of us. Sadly most of us don't acknowledge it today. I guess I have to go harder for my forefathers. Thank you for the foundation.
"I think y'all are obsessed with killing genres and cultures. Every week something is dying. So many n****s rode the Motswako wave and still do but won't say it. They would rather give it new names. Motswako is forever!"
