The mother of award-winning rapper Cassper Nyovest, Muzuki Phoolo, has filed a R1.5-miillion lawsuit against Shangaan disco musician Penny Penny and a weekly celebrity magazine for claiming that he was the hip-hop star's father.

Sunday World can reveal that Penny Penny, real name Eric Nkovani, will face the heat after he allegedly confirmed to Drum magazine during an interview in February that he was indeed Nyovest's father.
According to a court summons seen by Sunday World, Nyovest's 52-year-old mother, a retired senior public servant and a pastor at Saint John's Apostolic Church, is demanding R1.5-million from both Penny Penny and the magazine for defamation.
