So remember a month ago Cassper Nyovest was accused of physically assaulting a hip hop analyst by the name of - Tusko D & breaking his team's working equipment at the SA Hip Hop Awards?
According to Tusko D & Rawbust Production, Cassper Nyovest allegedly acted out of character after he was asked about that RISA statement.
In an interview on Touch HD, Cassper went on to deny that he did not act in any way violent towards Tusko D and dismissed the allegations made against him.
The altercation has now led to the media house demanding R3million from the awarding-winning rapper.
A supposed legal letter from the company was released from its legal team and parts of the letter read:
"Please note that due to your actions, our client has suffered extensive damages as the footage was to be sold to several broadcasting companies and was to be uploaded onto Youtube and their own website. Our client has been able to obtain the services of an IT specialist to retrieve the footage however only a partial amount of footage was recovered, being 2 interviews. We are further advised that the rest of the interviews together with the remainder of the footage covering the event is corrupted and cannot be recovered....."
The letter further explained that the damaged footage was to be used for the production companies app and therefore due to the rapper's actions he is to pay out R3 million for the damages.
"Further, your actions as mentioned above has resulted in our client suffering loss of income in the amount of R3 000 000.00 (THREE MILLION RAND).
It is, therefore, our instruction to demand from you, as we hereby do, payment of R3 024 500.00 (THREE MILLION, TWENTY-FOUR THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED RAND) within 14 (FOURTEEN) days from date hereof, failing which further legal steps will be taken against you, the costs of which will be for your own account”.
