Remember when we said we suspect Cassper is being sponsored by Nike? Well, WE WERE RIGHT..okay, so partially. But he was getting backing from the sportswear brand..but not for what you expected.
Recently Cassper has been seen going in extra hard at the gym and doing so while fully clad in Nike gear. Well, the reason came out recently. He was challenged by Nike to go and represent SA at the Berlin 21km Marathon. He took to Twitter to explain how his fans could show support to him with this latest collaboration.
WATCH THIS!!! A LIL MOTIVATION!!!! Training for my first 21km has been nothing like what I expected. I expected it to be hard but it was harder!!! I excepted it to be tough but it was tougher!!! I also discovered a new level of self believe and motivation!!! I say #GoMufasa pic.twitter.com/JnZjZLx0xj— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest) April 4, 2018
He went into a little bit more detail in a thread
His fans didn't disappoint, they came through in their numbers and showed support to their Tsibip. Their support wasn't in vain as he managed to topple the 21k's in a record 2hrs and 20m, 32 minutes shy of the time he'd estimated for himself.
I am proud of myself!!! I was going for a sub 3 so 2h52 would’ve been fine as my first run but I pushed and I surprised myself when in Finished in 2h20 on the Nike App. All I want right now, is some Mango Ciroc to celebrate!!!! We did it guys!!! #GoMufasa #TeamNike #KsazobaLit pic.twitter.com/9wdHAH3Fr3— R.M Phoolo (@CassperNyovest) April 8, 2018
A feat of epic proportion. We congratulate big leaps and even bigger collaborations so hey, big ups to the guy. Now we're curious, could the next move be a Cassper shoe? I mean.. it'd make sense. That is if the collaboration extends outside of the marathon.
