Cassper Nyovest Recalls When AKA Slapped Him: ‘I Wanted to Smash Him, but I Respected My Brand’

Nov 02, 2016 |

On October 29, Cassper Nyovest and AKA squashed their beef and embraced in a bear hug that sent the South African Entertainment scene into a frenzy. While many people are still celebrating that union, with AKA going on Twitter to wish his contemporary success, Cassper is looking back at that time that changed the course of their feud.

At the peak of their feud in August 2015, AKA ambushed the ‘Mama I Made it’ singer at a club and slapped him. That incident caused a ripple in their clime and earned AKA a roasting. The ‘Baddest’ rapper initially denied it, but eventually owned up.

Well, it is all water under the bridge now, but Cassper is speaking about how much that feud affected his brand.

“At that moment I wanted to fight back. I wanted to smash him,” the Mafikeng star told show host Anele, noting that he came to his senses ‘very quickly’.

“People got between us,” he continued, adding, “And as I looked into the situation I said ‘this is not me.’ I don’t want to be known for this. Cassper Nyovest is a brand I respect. Kids will do anything I do. So if they hear about me fighting then they will fight,” Cassper Nyovest continued.

He backed out of the fight because if he pounced on AKA, he strongly believed that kids in the hood would think it’s okay to fight because their idol behaved like that. “Even if it is AKA fans or Cassper Nyovest fans, they are gonna fight,” the rapper said. “A lot of people who listen to hip hop smoke weed because it’s glorified. I am aware of that and I try to be as responsible as I can.”

He added that his parents always had the conversation with him too, asking him to let the feud go.

Well, AKA and Cassper are almost besties again. Hopefully, their fans will learn the art of letting go from them!
