"I can clock about R2mil a night": Cassper Nyovest

Cassper Nyovest has officially responded to AKA’s allegations that he lied about making a million rand a month in his new song ‘428 to LA’.

Instead of just clearing up the confusion, Cassper Nyovest, real name Refiloe Phoolo has revealed that he sometimes ‘clocks’ over R2million ‘a night’.

“I make too much money and I own businesses, I’m not just a rapper, I own my business and in my business I own myself.

“Then I’ve got my energy drink, I’ve got my clothing label and then I’ve got property. I’ve got artists, I do my own events which can clock about two million a night,” explained Nyovest.

“The reason why it’s seems shocking for other rappers is because they don’t (make millions).”


AKA, real name Kiernan Forbes, claimed that Nyovest was lying about making a million a month and he is glad he does not lie in his songs.

“I'm very proud that I've never lied on a record. I just heard a SA rapper say, "I make a mil every month" on a song. Clowns!,” said AKA.

Cassper said he was shocked to have woken up to AKA’s tweets because he believed their beef was over.

“I also thought the beef was over, I don’t know what’s happening. I’m as confused as everybody else, I wake up in the morning and I see tweets about me. It’s like; I thought this thing was over. “

“Me and AKA were speaking on the phone as well, so I’m equally as confused and I have nothing bad to say about anybody anymore so I’m not gonna dwell into that. I just wish Kiernan well and I wish that he does well.”

Speaking at the Castle Lite Extra Cold Embassy in Nasrec, Soweto; Cassper said he has decided to stop talking a lot on social media and focus on his craft and filling up The Coca-Cola Dome.


“Whoever says anything about me, I don’t care anymore. I’ve got big dreams, I’m trying to fill up The Dome and I need to concentrate on that, put all my energy in that and inspiring little kids.

“These kids really look up to us and they would do anything and everything that we do. If I’m always in the paper for doing some dumb stuff, what am I teaching these kids?” asked Cassper.
