It's about a week before the Metro FM awards and Cassper Nyovest has decided to surprise us with a new release called Hey There. Nyovest, whose album has been nominated as the Best Hip Hop album for the Metro FM awards, shared the new single on social media networks on Friday afternoon for everyone to download.
The hip hop artist has just come back from a performance in Zimbabwe which took place last Sunday. This young man has proved that the hard work never stops and he refuses to live on the past success of the hit single Doc Shebeleza.
I personally am not the biggest fan of Mr Nyovest but I really do love the new single, Hey There. Maybe it's because, for once, Cassper has taken a mellower route. He comes across as sensitive at times on Twitter and this is the first time, especially as a non-fan, I've heard him show some of that sensitivity in his music.
The track has a jazzy, acoustic melody in the background, and Cassper's vocals do the track justice as he raps his way through the guitar strummed verses. What's more, he does all of this while still bringing a Kasi flair to it It's very impressive of him to show that he has more sides to his music than what we know so far.
I might not be a permanent fan, but I'm "converted" for now. Great song Cassper
Listen to Hey There now, and tell me if it was enough to convert you!
