Cassper Nyovest recently took to social media to share his two cents after rapper Costa Titch was accused of appropriating black culture.
Costa trended on Tuesday, 13 October after a video of his song titled Yebo Malume was shared by a tweep on Twitter. The rapper, who recently dropped his new album Made In Africa, is famous for fluently speaking black South African languages such as isiZulu and Setswana.
Cassper took to the micro-blogging app to defend the artist from those who shaded him on social media for appropriating black culture. The Amademoni hitmaker asked Mzansi tweeps to let Costa "shine".
"I can vouch for Costa being a real one. As much as the conversation is important, I don't think Costa should be the face of cultural appropriation. He's just a young kid who loves our culture and they're having fun. The politics kill things before they start. Let the young man shine."
Most of Cassper's fans agreed with him. They also shared that Costa is part of the culture and he's just having fun just like other Mzansi rappers.
"I don't understand people who say Costa is appropriating the culture, I mean we have South African rappers rapping in English (not saying it's a bad thing) but we never say they're appropriating someone else's culture. So y'all can see the hypocrisy."
"World class maturity... Keep it up Cass. Some are on a mission to make sure everybody beefs with you since they failed to individually break you."
"Dankie Cassper SA HIP HOP IS WINNING. It's all our thing and we're all having fun. It doesn't matter who does it. As long they represent us!"
Briefly.co.za reported about the white rapper on Tuesday when his video performing in isPitori left Mzansi divided. Costa entered the entertainment industry as a dancer, but over time, he metamorphosed and registered himself as a talented rapper on music lovers' minds in South Africa.
In other music news, Briefly.co.za reported that Cassper Nyovest has revealed that he's not looking to sign any artists to Family Tree anytime soon. The rapper was responding to a tweep on Tuesday, 13 October.
The Amademoni hitmaker shared that for now he just wants to focus on himself as an artist. The star also revealed that Nadia Nakai will remain the only signee at his record label because she's a "hard worker". Cass responded to @DestinyMindset:
"Maybe producers but not artists anytime soon. I just wanna be an artist for the next few years. Nadia is the only one cause she's loyal and she's a hard worker who don't wait on me. My studio is almost done so ima be labbing out with a few producers and artists soon."
Mufasa also announced that the construction of Family Tree offices is up and running again after it was halted due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
