Cassper Nyovest South African artist Cassper Nyovest has been slammed on Twitter for expressing his desire ‘to be Nigerian’.

Cassper was responding to a Nigerian fan, who said that he wished the artist was from his home country.

”I just wish you from Nigeria … are a good man and talented too ….always speaking the truth and being real… One love man” @onyesprills tweeted.

Unexpectedly, the rapper replied that the thought has crossed his mind, and that he in fact wished he was Nigerian too. His reasons being how Nigerians appreciate their local artists, and how they play local content on radio and TV 90% of the time.

”Won’t even lie. I wish i was from Nigeria too. The love they have for their own artists, the way they celebrate their culture, 90% local content on radio and Tv, there way they celebrate their music no matter where they are in the world, the unity within their industry. A DREAM!” he tweeted.

However, South Africans in the comment section were not having any of that.

”67k South Africans filled up a stadium to watch you yet now …. never mind. Some weren’t even your target audience yet they went there so they can help you fulfill your dream. But now… you want to be Obi,” one person asked.

Even Nyovest’s biggest rival AKA had a field day.
