Cassper Nyovest SAMAs

South African rapper Cassper Nyovest won’t be taking part in this year’s South African Music Awards (SAMAs).

Nyovest, whose renowned for filling massive venues, says he did not submit his third studio album, Thuto for consideration in the 2018 SAMAs.

“It’s been a long debate at the office and as much as I love making the fans Happy I’m just over the Samas,” Cassper told fans on Twitter.

The 27-year-old says he would much rather perform and not take part in the awards at all.

“I just love putting on world class performances you know,” he said.

According to the Cassper, he has experienced a lot of hate in the industry and he just grew tired of not winning even when he deserved to.

“Honestly, I’ve learnt so much from the hate, the industry turning against me, being snubbed at the awards when I deserved to win ect than I learned from actually winning & being praised by people,” Cassper said.
