Cassper Nyovest has been hard at work working on his fifth studio album which features some of music’s greats both locally and even internationally. He dropped his highly anticipated album at mid-night September 11th and has received rave reviews minutes after it dropped.
Before that he held a virtual listening party at 11AM an hour before he released, where he brought on the young man who went around a taxi rank hustling. His viral speech on making it through the difficult circumstances he is faced with, earned him a spot on Cassper’s Any Minute Now album.
Despite it not being a recent video, Cassper took it upon himself to hunt for the poverty-stricken young man down and had him present at his listening party.
“God is gonna make a plan for me. Tomorrow you may not even recognise me, I’m gonna drive a nice car. I’m a hustler, bra,” said the young man.
Cassper was very touched by his speech of one day making it, he was touched to the point that he included it in his album. Upon finding him, he asked Twitter to do it’s thing and find the young man.
“Please help me find him? I used his voice as a skit on the album and I would like to pay him for it cause it really moved me and inspired me. He says he’s a hustler! He already knows how to fish. Hence he attracted someone like me to him. I used his IP and I need to pay him. I also would like to meet him,” said Cassper.
After finding him the young man also had a message for Cass which ended with ‘God Bless you.”
“We used that clip on the album and I though it was so inspiring. It’s so great to see someone speak life into their life. You touched me and you moved me, and you are out here,” the two proceeded to handshake. He then continues by saying, “after this we will speak a little bit, thank you for blessing us,” and then the young man received a warm round of applause.
