So it’s the morning after #CHOAMVA14 and aside from the awards themselves (Which we are going to recap shortly!) one of the biggest talking points was Cassper Nyovest kissing Amanda Du Pont. Cue pandemonium!
So many people saw the kiss and now believe the pair may or may not be dating but I’m sorry I just don’t buy it! Think about it: What better time to stage a big kiss like that that will get people talking than the Channel O African Music Video Awards? A night when the whole country is either glued to their tv screens or their Twitter feeds?
That’s right, timing was perfect and it was a big enough event to get people trending. Personally I think it was a fantastic publicity stunt and nothing more.
Having said that, knowing my luck and ability to jinx things, they will probably announce their engagement sometime this week, hold the wedding on New Year’s Eve and have a beautiful family by the end of 2015; all in the pursuit of proving me wrong!
But it’s not about me; the real question is do you buy that kiss?
