‘Life can just get really, really sad’: Cassper Nyovest shares his challenges in a revealing post

  • Rapper Cassper Nyovest has opened up about how some challenges sometimes get the better of him.
  • The rapper opened up about this in a series of posts on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter).
  • This comes as the rapper readies to hit the road with Nasty C for their African Throne tour, the release of his newest single and his seventh studio album, Solomon.

Ahead of releasing his latest single from the upcoming album Solomon and embarking on a tour with Nasty C, award-winning rapper Cassper Nyovest opened up about the challenges that sometimes get the better of him.

Nyovest’s seventh studio album will be released on Friday, 15 September, while his single will be released next week.

Taking to social media platform X (formerly Twitter) in a series of posts Tuesday evening, the Doc Shebeleza hitmaker shared: “Life is hard. Like, this thing is hard. The one minute you’re on top of the world, and you’re feeling great, and things are looking positive, the[n] boom! Life gets at you.”


The father of one added that although he had a “very” strong head on his shoulders and believed in always dusting oneself off and seeing things through, it is not always easy because life can sometimes get one down.


“Jo, sometimes life e nale go beda (life can go awry),” he continued.


In another post, he continued to say: “Am I the only one who can’t sleep when they’re worried? Like I can’t sleep.”

“I will toss and turn the whole night. I hate it cause sleeping would give you peace and rest for a few hours, right? But, like, my brain don’t shut down if something ain’t right with me.”


Friday, Nyovest and fellow rapper Nasty C kick off their African Throne Tour, set to “redefine the African music culture” in Swaziland. The tour wraps up on Saturday, 28 October, in Johannesburg.

“The African Throne Tour is a celebration of our shared African identity. We’re bringing our distinct flavours and experiences to the stage, creating an unforgettable experience that unites and uplifts Africa as a whole,” he said.
