We might have found the root of Cassper Nyovest’s fascination with the sound of Drill and what many had suggested was his obsession with Pop Smoke. Maybe the rapper was not even thinking about the late rapper, but honoring his barber.
The “Good For That” hitmaker took to social media and shared a humorous video of his time with his barber and himself at home. The rapper was getting his edges straightened and could not help but have some fun with his barber. This is not the first time that Cassper has given his barber a shoutout on social media. The man is behind his classic look from the last “Fill Up” edition when Cassper had the monochromatic hairstyle of blond and black hairstyle. But who is Tsepo the Barber?
Well, the man is the barber to some of the biggest male entertainers in the game. His clientele has names like Black Coffee, Focalistic, Mlindo the Vocalist and Kwesta all on his roster. The versatility of the barber is evident with the celebrity list that call him to make house calls as they all have different specifications when handling their hair. And seemingly, Tsepo gives them all what they want.
The recent video showcases Tsepo cutting Cassper’s edges so clean that from any view that he looked from it was still on fleek. The video showcases Tsepo taking the opportunity of using Cassper’s vast backyard to check if he did the things that needed to be done to make sure that Mufasa’s mane is on point.

The video might have been a copy of the viral video that some tweeps could not help but highlight that Cassper allegedly copied. But as one response to the remark reminded us all that there is rarely an “original” thought, so let the man have his fun. Once the matter of the video’s inspiration was moved out of the way tweeps then realized another interesting detail about Tsepo.
Well aint no such thing as original @casspernyovest barber killed that shit better than the original 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Tweeps could not help but notice that Tsepo looks like the late rapper that advanced the hip-hop sub-genre of Drill, Pop Smoke. This could explain the reason behind Cassper’s fascination with the sub-genre considering how often he got dragged for “copying” Pop Smoke’s sound.
Moreover, tweeps started coming up with variations on his name. And the nicknames were nothing short of comical. From variations like Don’t Smoke to Pop Gas, tweeps let their creativity take them everywhere and anywhere.
