A few months ago, South African hip-hop star Cassper Nyovest announced he was going be a father and that he would be dropping an album soon.
Now that time has come – his baby boy was born on Sunday and his album Any Minute Now dropped a few days ago.
Bouncing baby Nyovest
On Sunday 13 September, Nyovest and his baby mama, Instagram influencer Thobeka Majozi, welcomed their little boy into the world.
Nyovest shared a picture of the proud parents in hospital and described them as the “baddest parents in the game right now”.
According to his tweet, Dr David Ngotho delivered the baby.
The couple have named their son Khotso and he already has a Twitter nickname: “Simba”. That makes sense, as Mufasa is Nyovest’s nickname so we saw #CongratulationsMufasa trend on Twitter.
Other celebrities such as Black Coffee and Minnie Dlamini-Jones congratulated the new parents. Dlamini-Jones, who is also expecting a baby, said she can’t wait for hers.
Baby Khotso is a significant part of his new album, Any Minute Now.
‘Any Minute Now’
Any Minute Now is a tribute to his new son, and the album cover is a scan of Khotso while still in the womb.
The much-anticipated 21-track album dropped on Friday 11 September. You can stream the album on Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, Deezer, Joox and various other platforms.
Nyovest posted his album drop announcement — gently and with affection.
Nyovest pulls in stars
Nyovest pulled in a whole long list of features for this one – Zola 7, Boogie, Samthing Soweto, Langa Mavuso, Anthony Hamilton, Apu Sebekedi, Bas and YoungstaCPT, Busiswa, Tweezy, Nadai Nakai, Phantom Steeze, Pro Kid, The African Gospel Singer, Tellaman, DJ Lemonka, Pantsula, Khuli Chana Molemi, Towdee Mac and Tuks Senganga.
And, says another Nyovest Twitter post, the whole album is already on the Top 100 songs on Apple Music.
Reactions to Cassper’s album
South African Twitter is not safe, not for a minister, celebrity or anyone and Nyovest has taken his fair share of hate on the app.
However, the last few days have been good to him. From his fans pouring out their love and congratulations to feedback on his album, there has been more good than bad lately.
‘To Whom It May Concern’
One of the most talked about songs on the new album is To Whom It May Concern. Rumours are that it is about rapper Riky Rick, as Nyovest and Riky Rick have previously had issues.
To Whom It May Concern is about the betrayal of a close friend. Nyovest says in the lyrics: “I’ve had some of my best friends holla at my L’s”.
Tweeps joked about the “whom” being Riky Rick.
