Nigerian Hip Hop veteran, M.I Abaga has thrown his weight behind the BET Awards quest of SA Hip Hop titan, Cassper Nyovest. The Chairman thinks Cassper is duly deserving after his feat of 68, 000 tickets at the #FillUpFNBStadium of 2017.
The rap veteran took to social media platform, Twitter, to support his comrade; urging him to go ahead to clinch the crown he wasn’t able to manage in the year 2010.
“Carryinhg forth an incredible legacy with all you have accomplished king… I wasn’t able to win the same thing in 2010 but after selling out a 68k stadium ? you should win it for us this year… African hip hop” M.I Tweeted.
An excited Cassper simply replied “Thank you King!!! We bringing it home!!!” in appreciation.
Most recently, Mr Incredible had also listed Mufasa to be among his favourite African rappers; also naming Nasty C in the top 5.
Cassper will be facing stiff competition for the Best International Act gong from the likes of good pal, Davido, who won Best African Act in the past year, as well as Gqom princes, Distruction Boyz.
Others in the running are Booba (France), Fally Ipupa (Dr. Congo), J Hus (UK), Niska(France), Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Stefflon Don (UK) and Stormzy (UK).
Do you think M.I‘s support of Cassper against fellow Nigerians, Davido and Tiwa Savage is a clear validation the Family Tree Records CEO is deserving of the BET Awards? Kindly join the conversation with your thoughts and opinion in the comments section below.
