Cassper Nyovest in hot water for saying black people pull each other down


Rap mogul Cassper Nyovest has been dragged on social media by some of his colleagues after he claims the only thing black people enjoy to do is to pull each other down.

Cassper was abroad last week where he was motivated to speak his mind. The rapper said in a tweet, “I travel the world. I’m blessed enough to sit in first class&business lounges&I often find myself being the only black person there. The 400 years of slavey thing just hit me now. We are sooo behind & the only thing we are extremely good at for now is pulling each other down.”

The tweet immediately caught the attention of many with singer Simphiwe Dana telling Cassper to put an end to his famous clap backs. “Babe, you need to stop. You’re one of the most loved artists in SA. This doesn’t make sense coming from you. Ignore the hate and focus on the love,”

“I also get frustrated. People can come at you sideways especially on social media. The black community is wounded. Everywhere you go. I just don’t like him alienating his fans. I admire his success,” she added.

Afternoon Express presenter Bonnie Mbuli alleges that the only reason Cassper was able to make that trip is because of the support of black people

Some of his fans also put out their disgust on the matter
