The much-anticipated soccer challenge between Cassper Nyovest and L-Tido will take place on Sunday, 16 Septmeber 2018.
In June 2018, rapper Cassper Nyovest challenged hip-hop artist L-Tido to a five-a-side soccer match featuring five other celebrity personalities. After much goading, L-Tido agreed to participate in the challenge. Nyovest’s side allegedly includes the likes of Kid X, Tellaman, and Gemini Major, with his mentee Nadia Nakai on cheerleading duties.
On Tuesday, Nyovest took to social media to announce the official date for the match. He posted a video of himself showing off his skill during a practice match. He wrote, “IM SOOO READY!!! The soccer game between me and .@L_Tido is next week and I don’t think he’s ready for me!!!! Come 16 September, you’re gonna cry!!!!.”
L-Tido hit back at his opponent with a series of tweets. He wrote, “Stick to music ?”, in response to the video, later adding, “????? wtf is @CassperNyovest doing ??♂️.”
Nevertheless, Nyovest is likely to be in top form ahead of the match, seeing as he has spent the last 12 weeks relentlessly hitting the gym. On Tuesday, Nyovest shared yet another shirtless photograph of himself on social media as evidence of his hard work. He captioned the image, “3 months till #FillUpMosesMabhida and I’m already ready!!! Are you ready??? Tickets are out at Computicket!!!! #BullySeason #getsgetsa20 #getsgetsa20challange.”
Nyovest upped the stakes for the match back in June, when he proposed that if his team wins, he will get to choose the release date for a collaboration between himself and L-Tido included on the hip-hop artists upcoming album. L-Tido jokingly responded, writing, “Damm ??♂️ok and if I win you become friends with Aka neh? (? couldn’t resist).
