The world of alcohol brands and brand ownership are always hotly contested debates.
Cassper Nyovest recently slammed reports that he does not own the Billiato gin brand.
A controversial Tweep alleged the rapper was posing as the owner and Cassper took to Twitter to dispute what the blogger said.
“I am the majority shareholder of Billiato. Not only am I an owner, but I'm the founder, the CEO and marketing director. I own my products.
“I'm not a brand ambassador or an influencer. The support from the people has been so amazing. Please keep supporting us. Thank you.” he wrote.
The controversy did not stop Somizi from beaming with pride about his celebrity friends' business ventures.
Somizi shared a compilation video of Cassper Nyovest, DJ Zinhle, Pearl Thusi and Kelly Khumalo, who have dipped their toes in the liquor business, gushing over their success.
