Cassper Nyovest’s Grandfather walked from Malawi

Cassper Nyovest AKA Mufasa shared the inspiring tale of his genealogy while announcing a performance in Malawi next month (that’s if Covid doesn’t put a damper on things).

The North West native took to his Twitter account to celebrate his origin story and which qualities he inherited from his Malawian grandfather.

The rapper tweeted: “Performing in Malawi in December. Always special on behalf of my cause that’s where my genealogy starts. My grandfather walked from Malawi with a gaggle of friends and settled in Potchefstroom. Started a business from nothing and that’s where I buy my entrepreneurial skills from.

Cassper – real name Refiloe Phoolo – was raised in Mafikeng and he’s since become one of the continent’s big stars. His roots have always been important to him, that’s why his label is named genealogy Records.

The hitmaker became a father recently, and every week ago he shared an Instagram video of his son, Khotso, named after Cass’s late brother. The muso shared an adorable conversation together with his son – born in September – where the tot are often seen telling his father about his day, and the way much he missed him.

This is faraway from the primary time Khotso has made a public appearance: the duvet of Cassper’s fourth album, Any Minute Now (A.M.N.), heavily references the star’s (then) impending fatherhood and features a baby scan because the artwork.

The album features collabs with legends like Zola 7, who has largely kept a coffee profile for the past several years. Speaking about working with Zola 7, Cass said: “Zola is an iconic artist, I searched to him as a young boy growing up within the North West, little did i do know i might share an equivalent studio and make magic with him.”

Despite having an honest year and continuing together with his social media outspokenness (even going as far as saying he’s the king around here), Cass has vowed to celebrate his wins and successes privately going forward due to people’s witchcraft.

“I’m learning the way to enjoy my wins privately. This world is sooo crazy I be typing things that make me happy and that i delete the tweet before posting cause yoh, BATHO BA LOYA GUYS!!!! Hehe!!! Protect your energy!!!” he tweeted.
