A day after he had filled up Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, he had gone on to give a superlative performance at the Global Citizen Festival, winning many over, including comedian Dave Chappelle and well, Jay-Z.Source: Jay-Z/Instagram
During Cassper Nyovest’s performance at the Global Citizen festival, Jay-Z apparently thought Cassper Nyovest was the American rapper Jeezy. It was kinda comic, especially to Cassper Nyovest, who took to Twitter to recollect the moment and the thrill of having got Jay-Z’s attention.
His tweet reads: “Jay Z saw me performing at Global citizen and asked his bodyguard if that’s Jeezy on stage… hahaha. The chiskop and beard is too gangster!!! At least I got Hov’s attention.”
Although the Moses Mabhida Stadium concert and the success of it has attracted supposedly negative comments what many call a shade – from L’vovo and others, Cassper Nyovest is flying on and luxuriating in accolades from around the world.
And Cassper Nyovest, who many speculate Emtee had shaded in a tweet early this week, is not one to keep quiet over this career plus – the recognition of his talent and powers as an artiste by a global star. He took to twitter to speak of his experience after he turned up at Dave Chappell’s show.
“I went to see Dave Chappelle’s show last night. As I was waiting in the line to meet him he stand say “Yo !” , I look behind me to check who his talking to and he yells “Yo Cassper , Come here”. I walk over to him and he grabs my hand tight & says “You killed that shit on Sunday.”
Apparently Dave Chappelle came around again, and this time he said out loud to Cassper Nyovest that he loves him. It is a love that is certainly shared by millions in South Africa. Cassper Nyovest had himself once observed his peoples’ love for him in a tweet “…you love me.”
