SA Hip Hop titan, Cassper Nyovest is in mourning with the passing of a father figure in his life, Papa Edgar.
Mufasa whose real name is Refiloe Maele Phoolo needs no introduction as one of the very best rappers the continent of Africa has ever witnessed.
Only thing is the fact that this season is not all about the pomp and pageantry as the “Tito Mboweni” mastermind took to social media platform, Twitter, to share his loss.
“RIP papa. Thank you for everything.” Cassper shared with his initial Tweet.
However, the Tweet immediately got a lot of misconceptions; especially as many understand’s Cassper’s special relationship with his dad; even dedicating the song “Superman” alongside Tshepo Tshola to his old man who he regards as his hero.
This necessitated a further clarification by Cassper who returned to the same streets to inform his followers the man who passed away was like his dad since he was the man in his mother’s life and whom she had lived with for many years before his unfortunate demise.
“I see some people are confused about this post. I know i don’t need to explain myself but just to put the facts out, this man was not my biological father but he lived with my mom for years & he has been the man in my mom’s life for years hence he is my dad. RIP Papa Edgar.” Cassper clarified.
While we send our condolences to the entire family and wish them the strength and fortitude to bear the painful loss, you can as well share your thoughts in the comments section below.
