Fans Slam Cassper Nyovest Over ‘Non-Supportive’ Tweet
Cassper Nyovest is facing backlash for expressing his wish to be Nigerian. The South African rapper caused a stir on social media when he quoted a fan, “Won’t even lie. I wish i was from Nigeria too.

Fans did not take his sentiments lightly, claiming to have supported the rapper since the beginning of his musical career.
Won’t even lie. I wish i was from Nigeria too. The love they have for thier 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 thier industry. A DREAM! https://t.co/goh02gHjtB
