Cassper Nyovest had people trolling him because he said he wanted to become a billionaire. This after US billionaire rapper Jay-Z was announced as a new partner to Moet Hennessey.
An inspired Cassper Nyovest re-tweeted that tweet and replied: “Izinja bafethu!!! BLACK EXCELLENCE INSPIRING!!! “Ima gonna be a billionaire.”
This caused an uproar from people who said they will never celebrate billionaires in a country were many are still starving.
One of his followers replied to Casper’s tweet with an image of Jay Z and replied: “Black South Africans celebrate black American success more than they celebrate black African success. Did you see how many people congratulated Jay z especially celebrities? Wait till one our own achieves or progress, they all go mute.”
One of Nyovest’s fans who disagreed with his tweet told him that they will never celebrate a billionaire in a country where majority of people sleep with an empty stomach.
Here are more replies from his followers on Twitter:
“Our so called celebrities will always tell you how much they have… especially if u disagree with them on issues… Bo Jayzee u never see them arguing with fans on social media..”
“I’m gonna be a billionaire / Imma be a billionaire. You’re not billionaire yet mara you’ve already started butchering English. Yoh. What are you gonna butcher once you’ve become an actual billionaire? Setswana? No man this is nonsense.”
