Cassper Nyovest shared a post that he thought was thought-provoking and started a huge debate around it. According to the post, there is no support in the South African music industry.
Cassper Nyovest sparked a debate around the lack of support and camaraderie in the South African music industry.
The muso shared a picture on Twitter depicting the industries of South Africa and Nigeria. According to this depiction, Nigerian artists support each other but Mzansi...well, that's another story.
Cassper captioned the picture "This is very thought provoking," and was right - it got his followers thinking.
A debate started around this matter, and people feel that many musicians are in it just for the money and that they don't care one bit about their fellow artists.
Some of Cassper's followers felt that he should leave others be and just focus on himself - let them learn the hard way.
