Events in the South African music industry can sometimes be likened to some drama or reality TV series. However, not a lot of people quite expected the recent Cassper Nyovest and DJ Maphorisa fallout.
The whole furore started after the “Thuto“ album mastermind took to social media platforms to show off the plaque he received as a multi-platinum selling artist who has clinched the iconic status of 10 million record sales in the course of his short but illustrious career.
Rather than respond in kind, Cassper Nyovest whose real name is Refiloe Maele Phoolo simply blocked Themba Sekowe popularly known by his stage name, DJ Maphorisa, on Twitter; asserting that it was easier than responding to every shot aimed at him.
The back and forth has generated so much brouhaha that many fans have taken sides while others have just continued to analyse the possibility and impossibility of Cassper‘s claim as well as DJ Maphorisa‘s rebuke.
However, one person who has now waded in to squash the growing beef between the duo is famed Kwaito legend, Oscar Bonginkosi Mdlongwa, famously known as Oskido.
He immediately took to Twitter to give DJ Maphorisa a piece of his heart and caution, as well as warned him not to become a ready tool to the devil’s temptation since he knew him never to be that sort of person.
“Ntwana @DjMaphorisa this is out of character, I don’t know you to be like this. Lets talk when you’re back home regarding this @CassperNyovest saga.Keep the faith don’t let the devil deceive you.Lots of ❤️❤️ ntwanas,” Oskido Tweeted.
