Although Cassper Nyovest is not everybody’s favourite person, the truth is, the Mahikeng born rapper shot to fame quite quickly and received enough love from fans to sustain him thus far, allowing him to inspire plenty of young people, one of them being Ofetse Tlou; a new YOTV presenter who sent the rapper a heartfelt email in which he thanked Cassper for inspiring him through his “music and lifestyle.”

Taking to Instagram‚ the Gusheshe hit-maker shared the e-mail with the rest of his fans‚ and voiced how appreciative he was to have been used as “vessel to inspire” the Mafikeng-born mega fan‚ who bumped into Cassper at the Fresh Prince of Maftown event last year.

“This is such an amazing story. This kid is from a village in Maftown. Remember meeting him last year at the annual #FreshPrinceOfMaftown and him telling me he is inspired by my music and my lifestyle and how he was a waiter at Spur, but he copped himself an iPhone because he is upper‚” Cassper revealed on his instagram, adding that “All glory to God. I thank him for using me as a vessel to inspire you bro. I remember you telling me how you got on a taxi to Jhb to hustle just like me.”

Ofentse’s email to Cassper reads: “Good day Cassper Nyovest. I hope this email finds you well.
