Cassper Nyovest has made some of the biggest hits of his career by referencing influential names on the local scene in his catchy hooks.
The rapper’s last song referencing an influential man was Tito Mboweni which was one of the fastest growing songs on YouTube and iTunes when it dropped. Years later the song is still making waves thanks to the relevance of South Africa’s new Finance Minister Tito Mboweni.
After the Finance Minister stepped down, Tito Mboweni was announced as the replacement yesterday (9 Oct) and this had Cassper making the news in different countries across the globe. The rapper was mentioned on the local news outlet eNCA and then on CNN playing the video on both news outlets.
