I will never forget when I was the laughing stock, says Cassper on hate
Cassper Nyovest, who has been called all kinds of names has forgiven his haters, but said he won't forget when he was the laughing stock.
Speaking to DJ Sbu on Massiv Metro, Cassper explained that he had forgiven his enemies but never forgot what they said about him.
"I will never forget when I was the laughing stock, when they were writing diss tracks about me. I used that as fuel to succeed. We can shake hands but I will never forget."
The rapper's meteoric rise in the industry saw him become the target of criticism by both fans and music rivals such as AKA.
Cassper explained that he used to respond to people's hate by telling them how rich he was but recently learnt to instead channel it into a positive.
"People would say, 'you didn't finish school' and I would tell them; 'yeah, but I have R10-million,'"he said
The Doc Shebeleza rapper did just that recently when he responded to AKA's offer to perform at #FillUpFNBStadium if he got paid, by encouraging his rival to buy a ticket for the show instead.
AKA later told TshisaLIVE that he was serious about the offer but doubted that Cassper would take him up on it.
Cassper also took to Twitter on Thursday to joke that when people were mad, he just brushed it off.
