The outspoken rapper has revealed that he is a millionaire and has banked R8 million from his gigs in 2015.

Not shy to let people know exactly where his bank balance sits, Cassper Nyovest responded to a fan who said AKA makes more money than he does by saying that he is a millionaire.

Cassper is the CEO OF Family Tree Media, the company that independently publishes his music and organises his gigs. He also has various revenue streams in the form of clothing lines, a seven figure deal with MTN, a brand ambassadorship with AG Mobile and KFC.


The Mafikeng born muso also hasn't been shy about splurging his hard earned cash - in the past year he has showed off two cars, A BMW 2 Series and a Mercedez Benz tour bus. He has also been spotted in a Lamborghini and a Rolls Royce.


 His bachelor pad, a Kyalami townhouse is said to not be in his name but Cassper denies this saying he bought the luxury home.


Although the 25-year-old leads an extravagant life, he is an avid believer of giving back. He donated R50,000 to the #feesmustfall movement and gave R100,000 to a xenophobia cause in Zimbabwe.
