Cassper Nyovest took his ambition to even greater heights this year when he announced that he was determined to #FillUpFNBStadium. However, things haven’t quite gone according to plan with the rapper himself admitting that it’s proving to be difficult to convince sponsors to hop aboard.
As a result, he’s had to fund everything himself: “I’m broke as hell. I almost sold my cars.
I am flat broke. I have two employees that haven’t been paid this month. This is the first time since (Fill Up) The Dome that I don’t have money, I am in debt,” – Casper speaking to Metro FMThe event is set to cost him R15 million and it looks as if Cassper will have to foot the bill himself.
However, he has not been short of support on the Twitter streets. Everybody from Black Coffee to Major League DJs has put their name into the hat to help Cassper see his dream come true.

Cassper’s subliminal response, however, suggested that this might not happen.
