In an interview, Cassper Nyovest revealed that rapper A-Reece and MC Somizi offered to both perform for free at his #FillUpFNBStadium concert.
Speaking to DJ Sbu during an interview, Cassper revealed the costs of the gig, saying that the most important part of the process was securing a date.
“You go to the stadium and you fight for a date, before anything. You fight for a date with Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and then they say, ‘okay, here’s a date, we’re gonna need R900,000’ and you’re like ‘okay’,” he said.
Cassper also revealed that he had to fork out R5.2 million just for the stage.
“You still have to fly these people that are building the stage, the whole team, they’re called Formative… They’re based in Cape Town. Some of the dudes are from London but they are set-up here.”
The rapper says all of the above excluded the paying artists who performed at the gig.
Cassper expressed his gratitude to A-Reece and Somizi, who offered to perform for free.
