Cassper Nyovest releases anticipated Kwaito inspired album ahead of #FillUpMosesMabhidaStadium
Casseper Nyovest and December are a natural pair and this is because of his now annual, #FillUp concerts which take place at the first weekend of December. Just a day shy of the popular concert, the Gets Getsa 2.0 hitmaker has unveiled his fourth studio album, Sweet N Short.
Cassper Nyovest has never been shy to show who and what his influences are in especially when it comes to music. With Sweet N Short, he pays homage to Kwaito music as a whole and how it has influenced him growing up.
The 9 track album features little features and is mostly just Nyovest doing what he does best, make songs that people can relate to. DJ Sumbody, Frank Casino, Shwi Nomtekhala and Boskasie make an appearance in the album.
The album samples TKZee and carries influences from the likes of celebrated veteran rappers, Amu and Skwatta Kamp. Kwaito royalty, Booga Love and Mapaputsi are also some of the influences we hear. Cassper Nyovest is effortless on some tracks and it is easy to see why he is at the top of his game, 5 years later.
Joints like Ayoba, Remote Control and Who Got The Block Hot are clear favourites because of the unapologetic street vibe and nostalgia. And the production and entertainment value of this album is incredibly crisp!

Sponono Sam’ was the third song off the album and it was loved by fans because of the message it carried. It’s a proven fact, people love rappers who can show off their soft side! And well, you know how well Gets Getsa 2.0 and Hase Mo States are doing on the charts so lets not even go there.
It looks like we are a day away until this album goes platinum! Will you be there to witness history?
Sweet N Shot is available for purchase on all major digital stores.
