Cassper Nyovest has, yet again, reminded fans that he was the first hip-hop artist locally to venture into amapiano, in light of Reason’s upcoming single, Khanda Shisa.
Cassper Nyovest took to Twitter on Wednesday, 21 July 2021, to state that the backlash he received when he ventured into amapiano was not the same as what will be experienced by Reason. Nyovest’s comment was initially a reply to a Twitter user who asked if Reason would get the same backlash as Nyovest did. Answering the question, Nyovest reminded Twitter users that he was the first to take such a risk.
He stated, “They aren’t going to say s**t. It’s not what you’re doing, it’s who is doing it. The truth is I am the pulse. I am so connected to the culture that I can’t set a foot wrong. They always criticize in the beginning but they always follow! It doesn’t matter no more though, it’s adapt or die.”
The rapper went on to educate a Twitter user on the so-called golden age of hip-hop in the country. Moreover, he went on to share that he believes that the golden age of hip-hop came to an end because of the cliques which formed. Nyovest appears to have forgotten that he might have not had a clique within the industry, however his relationship with AKA drew a line in the sand for artists who were friends with both of them. This includes names like Khuli Chana, K.O and Riky Rick.

Hip Hop was the biggest genre in 2014-2017. The kids gave it power, the streets gave it power. At that time, everyone hip hop
, supported everything hip hop. Then they created clicks which exist till today. Those clicks started hating on each other and down the drain it went. https://t.co/Js0PpiT9fy
