Celebrated South African rapper Cassper Nyovest seems to have taken an extreme liking for boxing as an avenue for settling scores with people who get confrontational with him verbally.
The multiple award-winning rapper squared it out with another South African celebrity, NaakMusiq in a mouthwatering bout that took place a few hours ago and provided doses of entertainment to fans across the world.
The event dubbed #Celebcity took place on the 9th of April at the Suncity Superbowl, a luxurious resort nestled in Cassper’s hometown province, The Northwest.
The star-studded event was attended by some of South Africa’s most well-known personalities including Big Zulu, Minnie Dhlamini, DJ Tira, and his wife, and The River’s, Matshepo Sekgopi to name a few.
The duo traded jabs after jabs but it was evidently clear that NaakMusiq had the upper hand as his flurry of punches in succession took the rapper by surprise. He was consequently declared the winner after the bout.
Speaking after his win, Naak said, “Boxing has taught me great discipline, it has made me more disciplined, I am not sure if I will continue boxing but I had a good time,”
Cassper who felt disappointed he could not win also had this to say, “The fight was amazing, very challenging, I took a lot of shots at Naak and he is still standing, I certainly had a lot of fun”
My whole career is built from starting at the bottom and winning again, so I am used to this (losing) and I will come back better,” he said to the roaring crowd.
Big shout out to Naak, a big shout out to my coaches, team, and sponsors, boxing is the big winner today and now it is time to party.”
Before he left the stage, Cassper assured his fans that the much-anticipated celebrity bout was not staged and that everything that happened was as real as it gets, “Today’s match was not rigged, it was very real and I am glad that Naak won, especially because people did not expect him to win and I would like a rematch.”
Another star who wants to get in on the boxing action is Big Zulu who told the interviewer that he would like to participate in a boxing match, “I want to box, please find me, someone I can fight,” he said in Zulu.
