During the latest episode of POPcast, the panel attempted not to disparage Cassper Nyovest’s name, as it has been suggested that the show does so weekly.
POPcast took to Twitter on Tuesday, 21 September 2021, to share the preview of the second episode of the fifth season. The popular local hip-hop-focused show marked the beginning of the fifth season with Ms. Cosmo as the only remaining original co-host. Original co-hosts, Speedsta, DJ Vigilante and Scoop Makhathini, all bowed out from the show. Popular YouTuber, Muchi recently replaced Makhathini.
Moreover, the guest contributor for this episode was dancer-turned-DJ, Courtnae Paul. The episode included the weekly roundup of the headline celebrity-related stories, a weekly roundup of the new music released and a segment called Unpopular Opinions. During this segment, the panel was asked who they believe is the biggest sell-out in hip-hop. All three panellists struggled as they did not want to openly say, but they all alluded to Cassper Nyovest.
This is the show, similar to many others, that has continually said disparaging things about the rapper. Therefore, in this episode, it was affirmed that his name would not be mentioned. Alas, even without vocalising his name, it was clear who they were talking about.
