Local entertainer Cassper Nyovest claims to be the "most loved hip hop artist of all time" and Twitter isn't happy about his flexing.
Unpopular opinion posts have been a hot topic on the Twitter streets and with topics ranging from celebrities to sports and movies.
On Tuesday, Twitter user @JohnState4Real suggested Nyovest as a talking point when he tweeted: "Unpopular Opinion": Mufasa Edition".
The "Monate Mpolaye" rapper quote tweeted him saying: "They never saw it coming. He is the most loved hip hop artists of all time. He's the benchmark. He is the reason why niggas have their one man concerts today. The boy is a legend. They hate the fact that he knows he is a legend an he isn't afraid of saying it. The Greatest!!! (sic)".

Tweeps weren't feeling his flex this time around with many pointed out the narcissistic nature of his statement and that he might be low-key shading his arch-rival, AKA who just went double-platinum for his 2018 album "Touch My Blood".

This is why I blocked Cassper he is on negetive person. Always beefin and shading people and he likes to play emotional blackmail. Ever since I blocked him my TL has been so peaceful— MAKOTI WESMANJEMANJE (@lykable1) March 20, 2019

When AKA show trended, Cassper posts this
When Cruz trended, he started "A re batle magapo" unproved,
When CottonFest happened he had a shaderant.
But a few months from now he will think people "hate"... https://t.co/eSqDzLNHgI
AKA congratulated Cassper for every major concert milestone he achieved in the culture. Cassper wont give Mega his props for achieving SA's first ever hiphop orchestra concert. Is Cassper for the culture? 🤔— Sbu (@SbuDaBuddist) March 20, 2019

Imagine being dumb enough to believe that Cassper Nyovest is humble.— It's me (@CapturedVoice) March 20, 2019
His level of narcissism recoils at the idea of humility let alone the act.
He's the sort of person who thinks that he never looks at the mirror, rather it is the mirror looking that's at him.
Nyovest then doubled down on his statement saying he's "done talking down on" himself and reiterating that he's the greatest.
Im done talking down on myself. Only great words about myself from myself now on. Nobody can compliment me more than i can compliment myself because nobody knows my struggles and victories like i can so i will gas myself up. Who you wanna know about? CASSPER? He's the Greatest!!!— R.M Phoolo (@casspernyovest) March 20, 2019
