Cassper Nyovest took it back to ekasi with a magnificent authentic South African production at #FillUpMosesMabhida but the real highlight was the electrifying atmosphere at the stadium where fans sang and danced to every song during Cassper Nyovest’s set and exuded such positive energy. Cassper Nyovest can’t thank his fans enough for making his fourth annual Fill Up concert a success.

Other important contributors to the success of #FillUpMosesMabhida were the sponsors that came on board and stuck with Cassper Nyovest throughout the numerous rumours that riddled the concert and chased other sponsors away: from false claims of allocated funds to the concert to rumours about the concert being shut down.

Speaking to The Media Online, Anele said we are not bleeding listeners, much like other territories around the world…”Ukhozi is out here being the third most listened to radio station in the world. If we can fly that flag, then leave us alone,” – she said.

When asked about SA celebrities getting presenting gigs on radio, she said doesn’t mind celebrities on air, but believes they shouldn’t be the main anchor. “They should be partnered with a stalwart, someone who just gets the basics of radio,” she said.
