You’re a super star! This is what President Jacob Zuma had to say wildly popular Mzansi hip hop artist, Cassper Nyovest, after he became the first ever local musician to single-handedly pack out ​the Dome in Northgate, Johannesburg.
Cassper Nyovest, whose real name is Refiloe Maele Phoolo, fulfilled his dream of attracting the maximum of 20 000 to the Dome on Saturday night.
“We congratulate Cassper Nyovest for his tremendous success which has demonstrated the rich talent that exists within our country’s music industry especially amongst our youth. Cassper has also confirmed the enormous support for local music by our youth, which augurs well for the development of our arts, culture and heritage,” said President Zuma.
