AKA and Cassper Ny­ovest hug it out

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment -

IT was a big night for Cassper Ny­ovest on Satur­day. Not only did he at­tract a 30 000 strong crowd at Or­lando Sta­dium‚ his also made amends with ri­val AKA.

A pic­ture of the two hug­ging at an of­fi­cial af­ter party has gone vi­ral. AKA was at Taboo‚ where Cassper and his crew were cel­e­brat­ing af­ter the show.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Them­bani Man­ganyi caught the mo­ment on cam­era and the im­age has since gone vi­ral and has been trend­ing for the past few days with fans urg­ing the two to do a col­lab­o­ra­tion.

While he might have been short of fill­ing up Or­lando Sta­dium‚ Cassper Ny­ovest man­aged to put on a show that will for­ever go down in the his­tory books as one of the most un­for­get­table mo­ments.

Ny­ovest, proved once again‚ to his de­trac­tors that he has the po­ten­tial to shut down one of the big­gest sta­di­ums in the coun­try‚ the 2 Legit hit maker was suc­cess­ful in rais­ing the bar (again) for lo­cal artistes when he al­most filled up Or­lando Sta­dium‚ with ap­prox­i­mately more than 30 000 fans for his hotlyan­tic­i­pated con­cert on Satur­day night.

Thou­sands of fans in­clud­ing lo­cal celebri­ties made their way to Cassper Ny­ovest’s #Fil­lUpOr­lan­doS­ta­dium in Jo­han­nes­burg. Ny­ovest made his­tory last year when he be­came the first lo­cal artiste to sell-out the Dome in Northrid­ing, Jo­han­nes­burg.

The rap­per de­liv­ered on prom­ises of a world-class pro­duc­tion, with a drone, LED screens, im­pres­sive light­ing and a ro­tat­ing stage. These are 5 stand­out mo­ments which to­tally sus­pended us in a state of amaze­ment: Somizi and Boity: hosts with the most It’s never a dull day when Somizi is around. So it was no sur­prise that he (in a gold en­sem­ble) along­side Cassper’s ex Boity kept the crowd en­ter­tained‚ be­fore the golden boy’s per­for­mance. Babes Wo­dumo meets Cassper It’s con­firmed‚ Babes and Cassper make the most fierce dance duo. They gave a ster­ling per­for­mance‚ and the crowd couldn’t stop cheer­ing. Cassper also de­buted a new kwaito song he did with Babes. Let’s just say it’s lit! Star-stud­ded lineup Babes wasn’t the only artiste that jumped onto stage with Cassper. One af­ter the other‚ and hit af­ter hit‚ the rap­per was joined by the likes of Doc She­beleza‚ Na­dia Nakai‚ Riky Rick‚ Em­tee‚ Mgarimbe‚ and Wizkid‚ with each of them giv­ing us elec­tri­fy­ing per­for­mances.

Cassper and Boity re­united The crowd went bonkers when Cassper called out his “spe­cial friend” Boity onto the stage to help him demon­strate how guys should court a girl‚ which ob­vi­ously saw him ser­e­nad­ing his ex, live in front of thou­sands of fans.

It was great see­ing them to­gether like that. And be­fore peo­ple could get their hopes up on a pos­si­ble ro­man­tic reunion‚ they as­serted that they re­main “good friends”.

Cassper sheds a tear as he re­mem­bered his grandma It was one of the most heart­felt mo­ments of the evening‚ when Cassper started cry­ing on stage as he re­mem­bered his grand­mother‚ who died last year‚ a day be­fore the MTV Africa Mu­sic Awards. He opened up about how she mo­ti­vated him and be­lieved in him.

So‚ when he took a mo­ment to catch sight of the mag­ni­tude of his mam­moth event‚ he couldn’t hold back the tears.

He also ex­pressed his grat­i­tude for ev­ery ticket bought and to ev­ery fan who sup­ported him on his big­gest night.

As Cassper closed the show‚ he an­nounced that he would be tak­ing on yet an­other task next year: to fill up FNB Sta­dium.

Given the suc­cess of #Fil­lUpOr­lan­doS­ta­dium and #Fil­lUpTheDome‚ there is not a shred of doubt that he’s go­ing to be able to pull it off. — Sowe­tan
