NaakMusiQ shut a lot of noise in 2022 when he beat Cassper Nyovest in the rapper's celebrity boxing match, but it almost didn't happen. The singer revealed that he almost had to pull out of the match due to an illness that affected his training.

He went on to say that his requests to postpone the match were denied by Mufasa's camp.

It seems NaakMusiQ, real name Anga Makubalo's victory was more than just to prove a point, it was to punish Cassper for being greedy.

Speaking to Mo Flava on 947, it turns out that weeks before the match was supposed to take place, Anga fell seriously ill and asked to have the match postponed but Mufasa's team declined.

"Six weeks before the fight, I got a chest infection. The doctor said 'You cannot do any training for the next four weeks.'"

He went on:

"We called the opposing team and asked 'Is there any way we can move this thing because when this guy is deemed fit to train, he'll only have two weeks to do so.' And we just got a big, fat NO."

Anga says Cassper wanted to take advantage of his ill health and inexperience to win. He says after consulting with his trainer, they decided to go ahead with the match:
