WINDHOEK – South Africa’s platinum recording artiste Cassper Nyovest returned to Namibia for the fourth time as part of a tour of his latest album, ‘Thuto’.
He put up a show at one of Windhoek’s night-clubs, Vibe, last Saturday.
Nyovest delivered an exhilarating performance that left party-goers in awe and on their feet.
The star opened up with some old jams from his old album such as popular tracks Shebeleza before intensifying the ‘Vibe’ with his most fresh trending song, Tito Mboweni.
Namibian hip-hop sensation Hilifwa 94 and female artist of the year Monique English both opened the stage for Cassper, and considered the event as one of the most remarkable experiences in their musical journeys.
Hours prior to the event, the South African superstar held a press conference where English expressed her anticipation for being an opening act for him.
“I’m under so much pressure right now, the fact that I know I’m going to perform at the same venue with Cassper gives me chills but I’m more than excited to do it,” she said nervously.
During the media conference at Hilton Hotel, The Southern Times asked the event organiser, and former manager of the Dogg, Knowledge Ipinge, about the saga on social media where Namibians were questioning Air Namibia for sponsoring the event and not the Namibian Premier League.
Iipinge confidently responded and said: “People shouldn’t talk about things they haven’t seen on paper for themselves, until they get that document they shouldn’t have a say on the matter.”
Iipinge also gave an assurance that he will continue to bring such acts to Namibia and give the people the entertainment that they desire.
Thuto album went platinum after its release. Cassper released his debut album, Tsholofelo, on 18 July 2014. He is currently signed to his own independent label company, Family Tree.
