South African rap royalty AKA and Cassper Nyovest are scheduled to compete in a boxing match in May 2021.
Kiernan Jared Forbes, better known as AKA is an award-winning artist from South Africa’s Johannesburg while Refiloe Maele Phoolo aka Cassper Nyovest is an icon in African music. The two are among the wealthiest artistes in Africa.
The Doc Shebeleza artiste Cassper having stepped on to the music scene in 2015 during what was considered the golden era of SA Hip Hop and AKA’s reign at the top, did not sit well with the latter with the former claiming he is “the best”.
The two have been feuding ever since, sending subliminal disses, at a point, AKA even slapped Cassper in a club, insulted his parents, and threatened him with a gun. “I will hurt him,” said Cassper in an interview.
The fitness enthusiast has promised to unleash pain the star, while AKA a staunch wrestling fan has promised: “It won’t’ be me to shut up for the rest of life”.
