Cassper Nyovest has taken to social media to add his voice to an ongoing discussion online. The AMN artist chimed in with a tweet regarding the #PutSouthAfricaFirst chatter.
Cass was of the opinion that the hashtag was rooted in positivity and unifying the country as a whole. He said what he did not approve of was people manipulating the trend to promote their xenophobic views.
The rapper went on to explain that being proud to be South African did not mean being intolerant to people of other nationalities. He rightly pointed out that pride of one's heritage did not mean the hatred of another.
"The movement #PutSouthAfricaFirst shouldn't be used to hate anybody else. It should only be used to uplift our own people. Be ware of people who hijack slogans to portray hate and discrimination. You can be proudly South African without being Xenophobic. My 2 cents."

Cassper doesn’t see Black Coffee’s R7k shirt as a threat, he sees it as a goal.
