Behind The Story’s Wednesday night episode saw Cassper Nyovest joining Pearl Thusi as the first guest of the season, where he discussed his rise to fame and the influential people that helped him.
Behind The Story’s season four premiere, which aired on BET Africa on Wednesday, 16 September 2020, saw the show taking on a different format, in an attempt to observe social distancing. Host, Pearl Thusi, was joined by her first guest of the season, Cassper Nyovest, who was located in a different room within the same premises.
They began by discussing the rapper’s rise to fame, which he partially credited to his ex-girlfriend, Boity, whom he claimed had become more successful than him much earlier on. He explained that as she became a star, his friends often teased him about not being on her level of success, which actually motivated him to do better.
Thereafter, Cassper discussed fatherhood and how his new album, A.M.N, was originally meant to be named after his son. He explained that in order for him to protect the energy around his unborn son, Khotso Phoolo, he chose to keep his name private until after his birth. Cassper also received heartwarming messages from his mother and father, who expressed excitement about their grandson, leaving Cassper emotional.
