When Cassper Nyovest was a young lad around 12 or 13 he saw his first Bentley, at the time he didn't know what car it was, except that it was expensive and he wanted to own one one day.
He revealed this through a series of tweets in which he spoke of how he was inspired by seeing his first luxury car.
Cassper wants to be an inspiration to children across South Africa and encouraged them to dream big.
“Yeah, I do. One of the reasons I bought Bentleys is to remind myself why I work so 'work'. When I'm driving, sitting in the back being driven, opening the garage or any time I am using the cars, I just take a deep breath and say, 'God is good' and hard work pays off!”
Briefly.co.za learned that when a fan asked him why he chose a Bentley he responded:
“First time I saw a Bentley I was 12 or 13 years old walking from my hood to Rivera Park [The burbs]. I saw this big whip approaching from afar. Didn't know the car but it just seemed expensive. A man called Ralf Mabe in a Green Flying Spur. I told myself I would drive the car one day.”
It was this moment that inspired him to achieve his dream of one day driving a Bentley according to TimesLive.
“I feel so great man. I saw a black man driving a Bentley when I was 12 and I was inspired. I drove my first Bentley at 25 and I know some kid is out there watching me, and believing in his dreams because he saw me live out mine. It's a great feeling man. I have done my part. God moves!”
