Cassper Nyovest took to social media to have his say on how violent police got with local artists who caused a backlog of traffic in Durban on Wednesday when they staged a protest on the N3.
The entertainment industry has been hit hard by the coronavirus. Not being able to perform because of social distancing has really made it next to impossible for artists to make a living.
Briefly.co.za learnt that DJ Tira and other local artists protested in Durban on Wednesday to make a point, but the police had none of it and things quickly got out of hand.
Videos of the protest and the police action were splashed all over social media. While the protested needed to be broken up some feel the action police took was unnecessary and unsettling.
Many artists have raised their concerns regarding the state of the entertainment industry as a result of the pandemic. Bonang Matheba is just one of the very many SA celebs who expressed their dislike for Nathi Mthethwa as she feels he has not done enough to support artists during these trying times.
Cassper saw the clips of the protest online and took to social media to express his views. Like many, Cass felt the action taken was a bit harsh and that action of this nature should be focused on rapists and paedophiles.
