With just 23 days before the rapper attempts to Fill Up FNB Stadium, it looks like he might need someone to fill up his bank account.
Cassper laid bare his financial struggle on Metro FM‘s The Drive.
The situation had apparently become so bad that he was prepared to sell one of his luxury Bentley vehicles. The deal, however, fell through.
“I was going to sell one of my cars to a guy, but he had a family emergency and he couldn't buy the car,” he said.
Cassper said the #FillUpFNBStadium show had cost him R15 million to put together. The stage alone was R5.2 million. To top it all off, he hasn't managed to lure a sponsor for what is the biggest performance of his career.
“The show does not make money. We don’t make a profit; I’m investing in the industry and the name Cassper Nyovest. In time, I will be amongst the greatest although I didn't make enough money to show it," he said.
“Sometimes I feel like maybe I should stop investing so much in my craft and buy a Rolls Royce but I think I wouldn’t be as far as I am if I didn’t respect my craft,” he said.
Then media personality Sizwe Dhlomo waded into the fray, tweeting: "Shows can bleed you dry. You can have six mil in your account the day before you decide to throw a show & then be three down after."
While, on the surface, it appears that Dhlomo is just stating the facts, some smell a rat. Do Dhlomo and Cassper have beef? We'll be keeping tabs on the situation.
Shows can bleed you dry. You can have six mil in your account the day before you decide to throw a show & then be three down after.
That's one of the riskiest things you can do with your money! Throw a show!
I sense a bit of shade as well.
Why do I have a feeling that you sensing a loss in there...
You should be talking about the industry not support local talent, I'm your biggest fan, I was expecting more from you
