Cassper Nyovest has reacted to Rihanna's massive R88-million donation to help fight Covid-19. He revealed that a 3-month lockdown would be just as bad for him as the rest of the country.
He argued that if South African's supported local artists like they did international stars like Rihanna and Drake then he would be in a position to help the country.
Briefly.co.za learned that he posted the message on his Twitter account which has received a lot of attention online.
We don't have Rihanna money. Truth is, we don't even know what we gone eat if the lockdown goes down for more than 3 months. Maybe if we were supported and stanned like yall stan Drake and Rihanna we would have the money to help. It's not that we don't want to, we don't have.
Social media users had the following to say in response:
