"I'm gonna be a billionaire," he said.
One of his fans responded and felt that South Africans show more appreciation to Americans making it big instead of their own.
"Wait till one our own achieves or progresses, they all go mute," they said.
Cassper responded by saying that it's really unfortunate that certain South Africans don't show support to their own. Fans responded in the comments, take a look at the reactions below:
"But I'm glad that everybody knows the winning fanbase in South Africa and the SA music industry leader. It's just that they don't wanna honour Tsibipians and Mufasa. Keep shining my king."
"That’s not the case. Our African artists rather sign an ambassador deal than invest in their own crafts and businesses. Imagine where Family Tree store could have been right now? You can’t be a billionaire on just endorsement deals you need ownership."
"Jay-Z is just too smart, that's it. Let's not put it in any other way."
