New dad, Cassper Nyovest took to Twitter to let his fans know that he is currently in Durban filming a music video for his “Bonginkosi” from his newly released album, “Any Minute Now“.

In the tweet the “Friday Night” rapper said: “Shooting #BongiNkosi in Durban today with the legendary Zola 7. I got my son with me down here at the beach.

“I have sooo much to be grateful for. My album charting in 8 countries. People are loving it. I feel soo blessed,” he wrote.

Fans didn’t mind that Cassper was filming - but they were shocked that he would take his new born baby with him.

According to certain traditions, a newborn baby should remain indoors until a prayer is conducted days later.

Cassper and his partner Thobeka Majozi welcomed their son, Khotso, (named after Cassper’s brother) on Sunday, September 13 and social media police were not impressed with Cassper letting his less than a week old baby travel to the beach.

One Twitter user said: “I hardly ever criticize people especially with matters that doesn't concern me mara isn't it a bit unsafe for a newborn to be at the beach during this pandemic?”.

Another said: “tjoooooh... but anyways I guess people's cultural beliefs differ, its abomination to allow such a young child to leave the house... but keh we don't do things differently... soyakubongisa”.

While Boitumelo Luthando said, “I wish people could understand that people carry things we can never understand and babies are vulnerable to these spirits. I'm happy for you though”.

Cassper quickly got on top of the situation and let them know that the baby isn’t exactly on the beach, but rather in a house near the beach.

“We have a house just by the beach. The kid is indoors. Don't start a lie. Kana lona di social worker tsa di tsibinkie!!! Kea le itsi!!!,” he said.

Cassper’s latest album was a tribute to his son and the cover of his album is the ultrasound scan of his baby.
