YoungstaCPT recently took to social media to throw shade at Mzansi artists who allegedly buy plaques. The Cape Town-based rapper implied that some of the country's musicians buy their gold and platinum plaques.
A lot of hip-hop artists have been receiving the recognition lately. Award-winning rapper Yanga Chief received his gold plaque back in September for his single titled UTatakho. Cassper Nyovest's track titled Amademoni was also recently certified gold.
YoungstaCPT, who has also has a couple of award under his name, took to Twitter on Thursday, 6 November to share his thoughts on the plaques. The rapper wrote:
"You can buy a gold or platinum plaque, you can’t buy love and respect."
The rapper, who has a host of top-selling songs to boast of, was responding to a fan who shared a pic in which Youngsta was receiving love and respect from one of his fans.
Tweeps took to his comment section to share their opinions on his post. Check out some of their comments below:
"The Young General. Original to the core. I support this man through and through. No doubt. There are international reactors still waiting to hear a flop track but they can't find any. As one said, 'This man releases banger after banger'."
"Youngsta. You truly are 'that guy'. You are going down in HISTORY bru, for being the REALEST anywhere!!"
"I got mega respect for you @YoungstaCpt."
"NO cap... Facts!!!"
"The real one."

AKA's fans have shared that they love the project while other tweeps, seemingly Cassper Nyovest's fans, have shared that they are not feeling the project. They have been saying that Any Minute Now sounds way better than Bhovamania. One fan @DeeproCrump said:
"Bro. @akaworldwid why why why? Do you know that Tsibipians will fry us today because of #BHOVAMANIA? Why do you hate us so much? Done."
