Cassper Nyovest transitioning from Hip Hop to Amapiano is probably one of the best career moves in his part. But being a popular name in the music industry as a whole does not warrant theft from other up and coming artists, now does it?
The rapper turned Amapiano hit sensation released his highly anticipated Amapiano track called Angisho Guys, last week Friday, the 30th of April. As much as his fans appreciated the song and danced to it over the weekend, some could not help but realise a few similarities between his song and popular Amapiano artist Mpura.
I make hits, thats what I do!!! Consistently!!! #AngishoGuys

Well besides the fact that Mpura’s song is also tilted ‘Angisho Guys’, the chorus too apparently sounds familiar. Mpura released his version of the song in March then a month later, Cassper does so too.
Many concluded that Cassper actually stole the song because Mpura released it first, however Amapiano vocalist and DJ, Lady Du cleared the air.
She claims that the song originally belongs to Cassper and that Mpura is the one who stole it. Lady Du is not defending Cassper because she is a featured artist, but because she wants to stand for what is right, and that is the truth.
