Reasons #FillUpFBNStadium hashtag trended

#FillUpFBNStadium trend

Many people were left confused on Twitter when they saw #FillUpFBNStadium trending instead of #FillUpFNBStadium.

Cassper Nyovest’s fans explained that #FillUpFBNStadium mispelling was done intentionally since FNB refused to come on board and sponsor Casper’s show hence standard bank came to the party.

“No need to give FNB free advertising they just have naming rights for stadium which is hired from stadium management company. Smart move” – Cassper fan‏ said on Twitter.

#FillUpFBNStadium “FNB” is not a mistake guys.They did it deliberately because FNB didn’t want to sponsor so Standard Bank came through…

Cassper Nyovest opens up about AKA beef on Real Goboza

AKA and Cassper hug

In a recent interview on SABC1’s Real Goboza, Cassper Nyovest opened up about AKA beef.

Cassper said: “Here’s my thing. Me and AKA have had our fair share of fights and I took a conscious decision two years ago to avoid that topic or name.”

“Because I felt like it’s over now, its boring. Every time I do something his name has to come up, so I was like, ‘I’m over that’ and I moved on.”

“Then he comes along, a few days before the show, and says whatever he says and adds that I need to give him a million rand to come and perform at the show… first of all I never asked you to come and perform.”

Nyovest added that there were multiple ways rappers could support each other, but a collaboration between him and AKA was “unnecessary” because their relationship was “not genuine”.
