Popular South African hiphop giant, Cassper Nyovest, has labeled South African artistes poor and hungry because they are not supported by the masses.
The rapper responded to a tweet which seemed chastising to him. An SA twitter user retweeted a a news tweet where Rihanna was praised for donating $5 million and ventilators to covid-19 infected countries such as her country, Barbados, neighbouring country Malawi, New York and other countries. The twitter user retweeted with comment, “South African Celebrities Are Playing Fifa”.
The spiteful tweet didn’t sink in well with Cassper, who is the brain behind the video game tournament. He felt chastised and replied by explaining that, South African artistes are poor and are not on the same level with Rihanna. He added that the artistes could have equally helped if fans had adored and appreciated them like they do Drake and Rihanna.
