After YouTube troll Slik Talk posted a scathing video criticising Cassper Nyovest on Wednesday, the "Siyathandana" rapper has taken to Twitter to respond to his critics.

"I get sidetracked sometimes and forget the bigger picture," Nyovest started. "I'm in it for the long game.

“Let's see where everyone ends up. Life has a way of putting everything in clear perspective."

He later appeared to subtweet Slik Talk, referring to him as "Akademics light" - a reference to popular and controversial American YouTuber DJ Akademics who's made a career as a quarrelsome music critic.

"It's Billiato and it's Billiato for a reason. I'm working my way to my first Billion.

“When I hit a billion, you and Akademiks light will still be making memes while we making millions.

“Don't let the lil social media clout fool you, you are stationary in real life. Lol sad boys!"

He later responded to a fan who remarked on the disrespect he's been getting, claiming people only hate him on social media to get attention.

“Before anyone puts respect on it, ima do it my damn self!"

Cassper's comments come after Slik Talk took to his YouTube platform to unleash a searing monologue criticising him for his braai show, his new liquor Billiato and his most recent album, "Sweet and Short 2.0".

“He drops trash music, the merch is garbage, ’The Braai Show’ is garbage," Slik Talk said at one point. "And another thing he dropped, Billiato the whiskey, apparently people say it tastes like piss."
