It’s undeniable that Cassper Nyovest is on top of his game right now and is dominating South Africa’s rap industry. His recent album, Thuto, went Gold on its first day and has been topping charts ever since with hits like Tito Mboweni (which just hit two million views on YouTube).

We also can’t forget that he was the first ever South African artist to fill up the Ticketpro Dome in Jo’burg with a capacity of 20,000. At first it was thought that the #FillUpTheDome stunt would be nothing more than a hashtag. But somehow he pulled it off and he has truly reached superstar status in Mzansi.

And it seems like fans on twitter are pretty amped to hear the good news.

Hailing from Mafikeng in the North West Province, Refiloe Maele Phoolo (Cassper Nyovest) decided to drop out of school at the age of 16 to pursue his dream of becoming a rapper and producer.

The risk paid off. In 2014 he released his debut album, Tsholofelo, which was number one on the iTunes South Africa album charts for two straight months.

Nyovest is being recognised by international legends like MC Hammer, who has given the local star props for his latest album. The album has really seen the rapper come into his own with tracks like ‘I Wasn’t Ready for You’ touching on deeper personal issues and abusive relationships in which women suffer the most.
