“I’m not about faking unity for the sake of hype” – Cassper Nyovest talks about his much-publicized beef with SA rapper AKA

South African hip-hop star, Cassper Nyovest who is currently in Lagos since his appearance at the Soundcity MVP Awards last week stopped by the Beat FM studio to discuss with Maria Okanrede & Olisa Adibua on “The Morning Rush” show.

He spoke at length on a variety of issues including his much-publicized beef with fellow SA rapper AKA.

He explained that he does not like faking unity for the sake of hype when everyone knows he doesn’t like AKA. He also spilled the tea on his relationship with ex-girlfriend Boity.
