Cassper Nyovest turns down opportunity to meet Beyoncé

Cassper Nyovest meet Beyonce

Rapper Refiloe Maele Phoolo, professionally known as Cassper Nyovest, shocked his fans when he tweeted that he turned down an opportunity to see American singer-songwriter Beyoncé and that he “probably” would have met her through someone.

Beyoncé made history as the first black women to headline the Coachella music festival.

According to his tweet, Cassper turned it down because he is too self-disciplined to skip his work. But the rapper also admitted that  he was tempted and almost packed his bags.

“I was invited to go Watch Beyonce this weekend but I have to work. The crazy thing is, I was invited by the lead singer of one of the biggest bands in world, I probably would’ve met Beyonce through him. I almost packed my bags and left but the way my self discipline is setup…(sic),” – Cassper tweeted.

Shocking Scene from The Queen Mzansi

The Queen Mzansi

Dineo Moeketsi and Fezile Makhanya’s performance last night has touched so many people in South Africa. The Queen Mzansi was not shy to shine a light on the realities of being in an abusive relationship when they portrayed the story of an abusive partner Tebogo (played by Fezile Makhanya) and victim Keabetswe (played by Dineo Moeketsi).

This is how the fight started “after a squabble, Kea had enough with Tebogo’s emotional abuse and pushes Tebogo away. He then slaps her, she fights back and continued to punch her and throw her around.”

See the videos below:

“I’m grateful that we challenged ourselves the way we did Fezile Makhanya. We knew of the ramifications and went full steam ahead. Dare I say It, I am proud of us. We took stand against the perils of abuse. Love to the entire #TheQueenMzansi team. They supported us immensely (sic),” – Dineo Moeketsi tweeted.
