Though he’s loved by many, it will take a lot of convincing to get Cassper Nyovest out of the mess he landed in among his fans on Twitter.
The rapper found himself in hot boiling with fans dragging him through the streets of Twitter this week after he pledged support for a message which claims that South Africans do not support each other. The post claimed that South Africans were poor at supporting one another.

For someone who has garnered a lot of support from fans in his career, the rapper ruffled more than a few feathers with the statement. Consequently, the rapper’s followers pounced on, accusing him of being ungrateful and engaging in blackmail.
A slew of disconcerted fans flooded Cassper’s tweet with comments reminding him that it was their support that got him where he is in the music industry today. They reminded him that he was only able to fill up the Ticket Pro Dome and Orlando Stadium in 2015 and 2016 respectively with the support from them.
Besides, he would not matter in hip-hop today without the support from his fans. Thus, they wondered why he would make such comment about South Africans and support. The rapper was even accused of not supporting anyone himself.
Here are some of the comments from angry fans;
Speak for yourself loser! If you don't support others, don't think everyone does the same. Even Zuma himself isn't supported all the time!

I disagree, you wouldn't have filled the dome and Orlando stadium. SAns support what makes sense and a difference in their lives.
