Cassper ropes in street per­form­ers

The Herald (South Africa) - - NEWS -

WITH just 33 days to go un­til Cassper Ny­ovest at­tempts to make hiphop his­tory by fill­ing the FNB Sta­dium in Nas­rec‚ the rap­per has been hit­ting the streets hard to mar­ket the con­cert.

Cassper has been vis­it­ing uni­ver­sity cam­puses across Johannesburg to en­tice fans to come out in their num­bers.

At the week­end, the mu­si­cian’s team roped in a group of street per­form­ers as part of their mar­ket­ing cam­paign‚ but Cassper was so blown away by their skills that he added them to the lineup.

“This was sup­posed to be just an­other mar­ket­ing strat­egy, but I’m so blown away by these kids that I am putting them on #Fil­lUpFNBS­ta­dium#Proudly South African for De­cem­ber 2‚” he said.

Cassper has still not man­aged to se­cure a head­line spon­sor‚ which has left him dis­ap­pointed.

He said he would foot the R15-mil­lion bill if a spon­sor did not come on board.
