The rapper was walking away from the highly anticipated boxing match with his long-time rap-rival AKA to concentrate on becoming a billionaire, he announced via Twitter on 20 January.
CASSPER NYOVEST BORED WITH FIGHT TALK
The infamous boxing match between Cassper Nyovest and AKA has been going back and forth for a few years now. The rappers have continued having a go at each other through their communication channel of choice — Twitter.
In a Tweet shared to Nyovest’s 3.1 million followers, he effectively pulled the plug on the boxing match by saying “enough about the fight, I know it’s boring now”. He added a project he was working on was a step in the direction of becoming South Africa’s first hip-hop billionaire.
The new dad also said the fight probably would not happen due to “too many cooks, lies, stunts and egos”, and that he was “bored of going back and forth”.
There are different versions to the story of who signed the contract and who did not, and what the reason for the delay of the match actually is.
