Elsewhere in Johannesburg, his rival, AKA was receiving a video call from president Cyril Ramaphosa and the Megacy made a lot of noise about the entire ordeal. This was all well and good but a lot of them decided to rub it in Cassper's face that he did not get a call and the rapper snapped back:
Although he had already addressed it, this didn't stop some of his biggest detractors from laughing at the fact that Ramaphosa chose to acknowledge his peer, AKA rather than him on a day when the President needed the biggest platform to campaign.
Things became personal when hip hop producer, Ruff, decided to throw shade in Cassper's direction. The beatmaker behind many of Emtee, Sjava and Saudi's hits said:
At this point, several Tsibipians noticed that Emtee and Ruff almost always seem to have something to say about Cassper Nyovest and made a point of it on the TL. Nyovest agreed, before he wondered aloud why there's so much hate in South African hip hop.
You have to admit, even if you're not a fan of his, Cassper Nyovest has a point. It seems as if we can never enjoy someone's achievements without knocking their rivals. When Cassper succeeds, his fans tend to spend a lot of time in AKA's mentions.
Perhaps we, the fans, are partly responsible for some of the hate in hip hop because we keep on provoking these reactions. What do you think ZAlebs readers?
