Big names be­hind Cassper’s ‘Fill Up’ con­cert in Joburg

Sunday Tribune - - FRONT PAGE - SIHLE MLAMBO

WITH just un­der a month to go un­til Cassper Ny­ovest’s am­bi­tious Fill Up FNB Sta­dium con­cert in Jo­han­nes­burg, his arch-neme­sis AKA has of­fered to be part of the spec­ta­cle.

AKA took to Twit­ter to of­fer a col­lab­o­ra­tion on the project, but the Tito Mboweni hit­maker said no thanks, in­stead call­ing on his ri­val of many years to “just buy a ticket”.

Cassper Ny­ovest is hop­ing to pack in 75 000 hip hop fans at the FNB Sta­dium in De­cem­ber.

Many of South Africa’s big­gest en­ter­tain­ers are sup­port­ing the rap­per as they try to sell 75 000 tick­ets. Prices range from R100 to R500 for the golden cir­cle.

Rap­per Kwesta tweeted: “Let’s sup­port @Cassperny­ovest’s #Fillupfnb­sta­dium pro bono and bona fide to show that our love for hip hop is greater than our love of money and fame,” he said.

Po­lice Min­is­ter Fik­ile Mbalula was also on the “fill up” bus, tweet­ing: “(I) am go­ing to sup­port @Cassperny­ovest #Fillupfnb­sta­dium am buy­ing 10 tick­ets next week… Lo­cal is lekker mos.”

House DJ Black Cof­fee pledged to spend R20 000 on tick­ets and said he would re­lease de­tails on Thurs­day.

“I’ll be spend­ing 20k on @ Cassperny­ovest’s #FILLUPFNB Sta­dium tick­ets for the fans ev­ery Fri­day till the show. #Just­buy­thet­ick­et­broer”

Us-based ac­tor Pearl Thusi also pledged 10 tick­ets. “Ok. I might not be able to go but I’ll buy 10 tick­ets and give them away to #Fillupfnb­sta­dium. Let’s make his­tory with @Cassperny­ovest!”

In a tweet to a fan, Ny­ovest said: “The plans of what’s gonna hap­pen on stage have been con­firmed though. If any­one wants to par­tic­i­pate then they can buy a ticket. We ap­pre­ci­ate all the sup­port. #Just­buy­at­ick­et­broer”.
