Cassper Nyovest ‘hurt’ by current state of home town
Local rapper Cassper Nyovest was shared how hurt he felt with the current state of his home city, Mahikeng on Monday.
On Sunday, Twitter user @kay_mahapa shared that Mahikeng's current state isn't good and said: "Mahikeng looks like one of those towns where the entire place is powered by a generator."
Responding to this post the "Move For Me" rapper said, "This hurts to admit bit it's also not our fault doe. The people who ruined Mafikeng know themselves. Looted the whole bank account. Savings & all. It hurts to go home now cause that place was beautiful. Now all you hear is stories of how beautiful things used to be. Sad sad stuff."

Sad indeed, a lot of towns are just like it now. Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark same mxm— Aqnasmaht (@Tham_iie) April 6, 2020
Lucas Mangope “the oppressor” built Mafikeng to world class, the ANC “the liberator” collapsed Mafikeng, the factories in Mogwase & Babelegi etc- let’s call a spade a spade— Dima Msuthu (@DimaMsuthu) April 6, 2020
The only thing holding the economy of that town is north west university ... sad news— MyPride South Africa 🇿🇦 (@MyPrideSA2) April 6, 2020
There's no beauty in the fallen Mafikeng left. It truly is sad to see. There's absolutely nothing functional. You can't even try to establish anything there because maComrade need to have their cut. Kleptocracy is the order of the day. There's literally nothing left to loot💔— Mr. Mmusi (@Its_Otee) April 6, 2020
Last year, the "Doc Shebeleza" rapper brought his "Fill Up" stadium series to his home province, the North West, where he held his sold out concert in Royal Bafokeng Stadium near Rustenburg.
Marking it the first time in five years Mufusa performed in his home province, the "Good For That" rapper shared the stage with Shekhinah, Emtee, Black Motion, Major Leagues DJs, Nadia Nakai and many other artists.
