After struggling to find sponsors rapper Cassper Nyovest might have to face the ugly reality of having to finance his R15 Million Fill Up FNB Stadium concert on 2 December entirely on out of his own pocket.
There is now less than 100 days to go till the massive event.
‘The show will cost about R15 million to put on, maybe more. Right now we don’t have any sponsors so I am financing it myself: The stage, the marketing and the venue. I hope that sponsors will come on board and help. I feel like we have proven ourselves before with two sold out shows (at The TicketPro Dome and Orlando Stadium) and so it’s a safe investment”, Cassper said.
Cassper promised his fans ” a world class show” which will be following a theme inspired by The Lion King character Mufasa.
“Last year we did something incredible. The year before we created a stage that was amazing and ended up being spoken about around the world. I don’t want to give anything away, but the stage will be incredible and something no one will expect. The show will be all about Africa, because we want to show off what this continent can do, but with insane technology and production,” Cassper added.
He is also in studio working on music for the show.
Cassper is in an aggressive workout with an intention to shed 10kgs by December.
The rapper said the goal was to create a legacy with the concert.
“When we talk about historical concerts, we always talk about America and American artists. We don’t want that anymore, that is why I didn’t invite an American artist to join the show” he added.
“When we do this it will go down as the biggest hip-hop concert in the world. That is the power of the African dream and I am ready to make it a reality,” Cassper furthermore added.
