- There has been much speculation that Cassper Nyovest and Riky Rick are no longer friends
- New evidence has surfaced, leading towards their bromance ending
- Both Cassper Nyovest and Riky Rick are no longer friends on social media
It looks like Cassper Nyovest and Riky Rick are beefing or have issues with one another.
According to reports, the two big Mzansi rappers no longer follow each other on social media. SA Hip Hop magazine confirmed that the once-inspiring and joyful bromance has come to an end.
The two artists have been friends for quite some time but a while back, suspicions started to arise. The first suspicion broke when Riky didn’t feature Cassper Nyovest in the line-up at his Cotton Fest, which featured most of the big names in hip-hop. But both rappers were vague when questioned about it.
Riky slammed claims that they were beefing by saying: “Beef ain’t for grown people”.
But Cassper responded to the question about him not being part of Cotton Fest.
“A lot of people have been asking me if I’m a surprise act for Cotton Fest. No I’m not. I wasn’t booked for the event or even asked to be part of it but I don’t have beef with not being part of it though. It’s dope to see SA hip-hop unite and create dope moments. I’m all for that,” said Cassper.
That was probably the last time both rappers spoke of anything involving each other. They don’t hang out or share images of public support like before either.
The latest confirmation and assurance on the speculation, however, is the fact that the rappers no longer follow each other on social media.
Five months ago, Briefly.co.za reported that 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 on the list of performers.
