ROMA — Famous for his ponytail, dance moves and his hard-hitting Motswako lyrics, Cassper Nyovest overwhelmed fans at the D2a-Majoe Vs Motswako show that was held in Netherlands Hall at NUL.

Putting things into perspective, Cassper stole the limelight when he won the South African dance competition Jika Majika through his Pantsula dance moves.

Some years later he was performing alongside HHP at various places, including far away venues like London.

He is now potentially about to become one of Motswako’s leading artistes.

Speaking to the Weekender at the show he said he was excited to be in Lesotho.

“I have been here before with HHP and the people here are great. The fact that Setswana is somehow similar to Sesotho, fans are able to understand my music.

“When I was on stage I could not tell whether I was in Mafikeng or anywhere in South Africa due to the great love Basotho showed me. I had a great time.”

The most pleasantly surprising moments of the show were performances by usual entertainers T-Mech and his Basali-Basali crew, and of course the group that made the show possible D2a-Majoe who turned up the showmanship standard with their live sets.

Also performing was Mo Molemi and Tuks Senganga with their killer flows.

Lesedi FM’s Ba2cada never ceased to entertain his fans with his talking skills; he was the MC of the day.

Local rapper Shuffle told the Weekender that he was honoured to share the stage with Motswako rappers.

“Getting international exposure is a great experience as it introduces us to other markets. I realised that the way we Sotho-hop artistes do music is more or less the same as those of Motswako rappers.”
