The annual South African Hip Hop Awards held at the The Lyric Theatre in Johannesburg last night came with its fair share of drama.
During his acceptance speech, Cassper Nyovest aka Mufasa, who scooped six gongs, said a line that many will remember for a long time: “Tumi, you ain’t do sh*t for me, bro”.
This after rapper and poet Tumi Molekane, aka Stogie T, namedropped rappers who have come through his studio and whose careers he helped.
But Mufasa wasn't the only one who had a bone to pick with Stogie T.
Taking to social media, Riky Rick also lashed out on Stogie T, he tweeted:
Let me tell you what happened. I wanted to release Boss Zonke and tumi said the track is wack and he didnt want to be part of it. I said shap. Paid him coins to get off the label. Put out Boss Zonke. Became a classic. Family values went platinum. The rest is history.
The Sidlukotini hitmaker fired more shots at Stogie T:
I got respect for Tumi BUT honestly he needs to stop tryna claim niggaz success... I paid alot money to get out of the motif contract. He should have left it there instead of tryna bring it up in every track he puts out... let it go.— #StayShiningEP (@rikyrickworld) December 14, 2017
And Mzansi, staying true to its form, grabbed the popcorn and loaded up the memes as the drama unfolded. Here are some of their reactions:
He's probaly gonna go write more bars for his fans to be happy But this is the last time mention the guy. I would to stick around and entertain this BS but my life is actually in a good place. We making coins. We putting youngers on. Anything negative can take a backseat. ✌🏾— #StayShiningEP (@rikyrickworld) December 14, 2017
