Octopizzo tongue lashes South African artiste Cassper Nyovest on stage
Kenyan rapper Octopizzo on Saturday gave South African artiste Cassper Nyovest a dressing down on stage during the TGR event at Ngong Racecourse for keeping the fans waiting.
Octopizzo, who was among the big names who performed at the event, took issue with Cassper’s late arrival at the event yet he was the main act.
Octo wasted no time in kicking off his performance with remarks directed at the visiting artiste, while insisted that the South African should first apologize to the fans.
“It has become a trend that many international acts who perform in Kenya take for granted the Kenyan audience, they arrive late and end up giving a lackluster performances,” he said amid applause from the crowd.
However, when he took to the stage, Cassper, whose pre-event his media conference had been postponed three times, did not apologize, but went on to deliver a performance that lasted less than an hour.
According to a source who spoke to Nairobi News, the reason why the singer was late and never managed to do any press tour was because his passport had been held by the British Embassy.
Away from Octo’s rant, DJ Protege and DJ Dii psyched up the crowd ahead of the big act performances during the event which started 6 hours behind schedule.
The 4-hour show, which was hosted by comedian Chipukizee and media personality Shaffie Weru also featured Steph Kapela, Fena Gitu and Khaligraph Jones.
Fena, accompanied by dancers, gave an energetic performance, which included her latest track Miss Me With That.
Khaligraph, the man who has been gracing almost every act in the country, took the occasion to introduce upcoming female Msupa S.
And he didn’t disappoint as he gave a class performance and topped it up by bring out Sauti Sol for their collaboration Rewind.
