With a little over 4,000 tickets left for his #FillUpTheDome concert, Cassper is very close to achieving his dream.

The rapper, who has had a successful year, is ready for his show at the Ticket Pro Dome in Johannasburg. Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, the award-winning artist said the support from fans has been nothing short of amazing. 

"We're actually blown away, we actually thought we would need TV. We actually had a TV sponsor that we were looking at but we ended up not getting. For us it's already a success. The ticket is written 'with Cassper Nyovest', we didn't advertise. The way people have been responding to this has been nothing short of amazing."

Although he's doing this for the fans and inspiring other people to dream, Cassper said he will not be making any money from the show. He's losing money instead.

"I'm not making any money from #FillUpTheDome. I see a lot of people tweeting 'yo Cass, he gon' kill it, he gon' make R4 million'. I'm losing money from the Dome, but for me it's how many kids am I going to inspire?"

He added that it's impossible to make money from the Dome because, unfortunately, you can't make a ticket R900 to come and see Cassper Nyovest. "People have to be convinced. Next year maybe if we do the Dome we can do that and make a profit, but right now we need to invest in the dream." 

Cassper explained that to do the whole show at the Dome costs R4.8 million, and selling out tickets only raises R3.2 million. "So from the onset, even when you set up, you lose money, you don't make money from it."  

So, what can you expect from the concert? Well, Cassper will be supported by Riky Rick, Major League DJz and Anatii. He'll be performing all his hit tracks, including his features with other artists.
