Cassper Nyovest was boastful following reports that AKA is not an executive producer of The Braai Show, which he is set to host season two of.
Cassper Nyovest took to Twitter on Wednesday, 11 August 2021, to assert that he will not be working for AKA. On Tuesday, 10 August 2021, the rapper announced that he is set to host the new season of The Braai Show. The first season of the show was hosted by his musical rival, Kiernan “AKA” Forbes. Moreover, it was believed that the rapper was one of the executive producers of the show, since the idea was believed to have been conceptualised by the rapper for his app.
In light of the ongoing speculation, Nyovest was ridiculed for supposedly preparing to start working for AKA. Moreover, the rapper was ridiculed for allegedly continuing to emulate the career moves taken by AKA. One such naysayer was radio and television personality, Speedsta. The Live AMP co-host labelled Nyovest as weak and soulless for his decision, a sentiment which was later tainted by the fact that his subsequent post was to announce the release of his new single, Pardon My French, featuring Zooccci Coke Dope and Lucasraps.
When the production companies behind the show, Cake Media and MakhuduCom, claimed that AKA is not part of the show in any form, Nyovest felt vindicated and shared the fact on Twitter. Moreover, when suggestions continued to accuse him of at least stealing the idea from AKA, considering the context in which the show was conceptualised, Nyovest responded, “Didn’t steal any idea, I was offered a show, I took the cheque and made some demands on top of the cheque. It’s just business, only the strong will survive out here! I must deny a pay cheque cause Lesego says so? Hahaha, nka tswa matlho a 4 (I would never do that). The Braai Show With Cass coming soon.”
Nyovest understands that the speculation and the continued discussions of ownership will only heighten the anticipation to see whether he is a suitable replacement. However, the rapper did affirm that it took him at least two shoots in order to find his presenting voice. Moreover, he revealed that one of the guests set to be part on the show is Mihlali Ndamase.
