Cassper Nyovest Controversy: TB Joshua and his death predictions at ‘FillUpOrlandoStadiumConcert’
According to a fake circulating report, Prophet T.B. Joshua (A Televangelist) allegedly predicted, on his Facebook account, that there will be a fatal accident at the stadium, killing more than 12 000 people. However, the prophet has since dismissed the report, labeling it a “fraudulent story” on his verified Facebook page. Cassper immediately heard the rumors and shut it down via his Twitter account.
Cassper Nyovest And Boity Split
Earlier in the year around the month of April it was announced and confirmed by Cassper that he and actress Boity Thulo had officially separated. They both have different sides to the story but as outsiders we will never know the truth because we weren’t there. Cassper then went on to make a song about the break up shortly after saying some interesting things including:
“Oh well‚ there goes the power couple I really thought we would make it/ Maybe we would of if I wasn’t as famous. You ain’t really have to go to the papers behind my back/ and only tell me when the cover came out. Girl‚ that was whack. But it’s cool‚ I’m not trying to highlight all the negatives/ Our love was real and I don’t want to discredit it. You got along with my mom and all my relatives/ My dad said you the one before we ended it. He kept telling me to fight for you‚ but that don’t matter now/ You chose to make it official‚ hope you feel better now.”

Is AKA Richer Than Cassper Nyovest
Earlier this year back in February SA Hip Hop published an article in their magazine listing the top ten richest South African rappers. On the list, Nyovest, who has achieved so much though out his career including his latest album Refiloe going platinum, filling up the TicketPro Dome and signing a deal with MTN, is worth R3.2 million (South African dollars).
The magazine further reports AKA to be worth R4.8 million (South African dollars), acquired through endorsement deals, performances and album sales. The truth is until someone examines both of their finances closely or reads their tax returns, which should be available for the public, no one will really know who is richer. For now these to rappers will continue their feud on who makes better music and who is richer!
