Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up Royal Bafokeng Concert is around the corner and the rapper is still struggling to get sponsors.
Cassper Nyovest was saddled with debts of R7 million last year after doing it alone for his Fill Up Moses Mabhida concert in Durban.

On Thursday, Cassper announced the packages, the prices range from R1,495 per person for the silver option to R2,399 per person for the platinum package. He opened up about his struggles to once again receive funding from local government and sponsors.
“No sponsors from the NW gov yet. Santse ke kopa thuso. It’s hard ouchea bro,” he told fans on Monday evening.

The rapper opened up earlier in the day about his ongoing battle to get a sponsor.
“I struggle with sponsors every year with Fill Up. One would think they would be fighting to be part of the property now, but nah. It’s hard for a black entrepreneur in SA, bro. It’s so hard! But we soldier on! 15 December, we #FillUpRoyalBafokeng!” he wrote.
While many fans sent the rapper messages of encouragement, others claimed he should change his strategy because his rival AKA (Kiernan Jarryd Forbes) was able to pull sponsors.
Y’all love talking like y’all know. You have never operated at this level. Educate yourselfs. We are talking tens of millions here, not a budget for a bash. We have turned down sponsors cause they insist on giving us peanuts.
