It's never nice to see somebody slandered for something they played absolutely no part in. The big news this week is around Cassper Nyovest and the now infamous incident that resulted in him cancelling his performance. Cassper alleges that one of "AKA's homies" pulled a gun on him on Friday night, hours before his Live Amp performance. We're all looking for this mystery "homie" of AKA's, with some wondering how true this entire story is- let alone whether or not the perpetrator has any links to AKA at all.
One person whose name is being bandied about is that of Prince. You'll have seen him hanging out with AKA and Da L.E.S in Joburg from time to time; Prince is a media mogul with strong ties in the entertainment industry, a growing business and an all round good personality. We're not really sure why people think he'd be the man behind the alleged attack on Cassper, but we're very sure he's upset about it.
ZAlebs caught up with the industry professional this morning who has issued the statement below regarding his suspected involvement in Friday's events.
I would like to state that I am very disappointed with the stories that have been coming out since Friday evening whilst attending a performance with a good friend, AKA that blatantly accuses me of threatening someone’s life. I would like to state on record that this was a cheap publicity stunt that aims to tarnish my reputation.
I am a young Businessman that is very well respected in my industry and the Media field thus these accusations have left me shocked and gob smacked. AKA is a good friend and younger brother to me, he Is raised well from a good home with morals and his career is flourishing. I have no business nor the time to get involved in other people’s issues, particularly issues that don’t involve me.
These accusations are damaging to my character, however I am going to hand myself over to the Police station with my lawyer and once that is done, I will press charges for defamation of character against Cassper and his Management.
If anybody was in any doubt about Prince's involvement in the whole incident, it should be well and truly cleared up now.
