The bromance between leading local light Vee Mampeezy and celebrated South African rapper Cassper Nyovest is well documented and dates way back.
It reached an exciting new high this week.
Whilst in the country to promote his ‘Fill up Royal Bafokeng’ festival, Nyovest announced Vee will mark Botswana’s first entry at the event.
Scheduled for Sunday 15 December in Rustenburg, the popular show is now in its fifth edition.
Speaking to the pint-sized superstar after the historic announcement, Vee told Voice Entertainment, “We were hoping to get more Batswana artists on board. This is a big event, as you can imagine it would have been nice to have some artist up there with me. Unfortunately because of this and that I will be the only one but I really tried to get more Batswana names on board.”
Vee, whose collaboration with Dr Tawanda is verging on three million YouTube views, further revealed, “We are also working on a song, Cassper Nyovest and I. It will be ready soon. But because of the event and the festive hype we have decided to only release it early next year, so our supporters can wait a little bit longer on that one!”
For his part, Nyovest was full of praise for both Vee and Batswana. The rapper described Botswana as his second home, where he has enjoyed performing from the very start of his career.
