Kudos for Cassper Nyovest filling the dome

Written by

Cassper Nyovest, the South African hip hop artist who was the first musician to fill the 20 000 seating capacity Dome in Northgate, Randburg without the assistance of an international act, has received praise from President Jacob Zuma.


Nyovest, whose real name is Refiloe Maele Phoolo, performed to a full capacity Dome arena over the weekend, fulfilling his dream and in the process achieved a feat that no other South African artist had ever achieved.

In a statement on Monday, President Zuma congratulated the musician.

"We congratulate Cassper Nyovest for his tremendous success which has demonstrated the rich talent that exists within our country's music industry, especially amongst our youth.

“Cassper has also confirmed the enormous support for local music by our youth, which augurs well for the development of our arts, culture and heritage,” President Zuma said.
