Nickelodeon Africa Announces Cassper Nyovest, ProVerb And Pearl Thusi To Attend NickFest 2015

Nickelodeon Africa has announced the exciting news that hip hop prodigy Cassper Nyovest will be performing live at the inaugural NickFest on Saturday 13th June 2015! The platinum-selling rapper is set to bring down the house at the spectacular, family friendly festival, which is transforming Tsogo Sun’s The Globe at Silverstar Casino into a slime-filled Nickelodeon wonderland!

Comments Cassper Nyovest, "I'm very excited to be part of the first ever South African edition of NickFest. I've been proud to collaborate and perform alongside influential artists from HHP to Talib Kweli, DJ Drama, Kid Cudi and Kendrick Lamar, but I'll be taking my career to a new level when I share a stage with icons like SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, and a quartet of giant green amphibians warriors!"

Born in the small neighbourhood of Montshiwa in Mafikeng, Cassper started rapping at the age of 12, before leaving school at 16 to follow his dream of Hip Hop stardom. Fortunate enough to be spotted by HHP, Cassper subsequently travelled far and wide with the Motswako rapper, taking South African Hip Hop to the world. After he dropped his own official single Gusheshe in 2013, Cassper's career took off, and he has since won an astonishing array of awards, including the South African Hip Hop Awards, the Metro FM Awards and the SAMAs, plus Best African Male Artist at the Channel O Awards. Cassper has high hopes of winning his first BET Award in June, and believes he'll score a Grammy one day soon!
