Cassper Nyovest has described witnessing someone do cocaine for the first time as the scariest thing he's ever seen.

From that day onwards the rapper has made it his mission to help encourage young people to pave a different path for themselves.

"When I go back to my hood I see seven-year-olds smoking weed. I saw a 14-year old taking coke," he said.

The rapper added that the first time he saw cocaine he was 16 years old and it was the "scariest thing" he ever experienced.

Cassper added that he saw how young people didn't have anything to inspire to and it has been his mission to change that.
