- Cassper Nyovest's name is very famous these days - it's almost a brand on its own
- However, the rapper revealed he used to have a very different name years ago
- Before there was Cassper Nyovest, there was Young Gun
Cassper Nyovest's name is quite unique and it's impossible to imagine him with any other name.
But it was almost not to be - the muso had a very different stage name back when he was still starting out.
The Cassper Nyovest that fans admire and adore today used to be known as Young Gun.
It's a good thing he decided to drop that name and go with Cassper - it's not as creative or unique as his current stage name.
Fans (obviously) saw the funny side and said that Mufasa would not have made it in the rap game if his name was Young Gun, Briefly.co.za noticed.
Cassper confirmed on Twitter that his name was Young Gun and the comments came rolling in.
Check out what some of them had to say:
"He wouldn't have made it with that name."
"Thank God you changed it."
"And Now His A Big Gun Cause He's #GoodForThat"
"I doubt he'd have lasted in the game with that name."
"Yeah no it was not going to work."
Another muso known for changing his name is Stogie T. He used to be Tumi From the V and even Tumi Molekane.
