Refiloe Maele Phoolo, better known as Cassper Nyovest, is a prominent South African rapper, songwriter, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is widely recognized as one of the pioneers of the hip-hop genre in South Africa and has become one of its biggest names.

In 2014, Nyovest founded his record label, Family Tree Records, which has helped to propel him to fame. His debut album, Tsholofelo, featured hit tracks such as “Gusheshe” and “Doc Shebeleza,” further cementing his position in the music industry.

In 2015, Nyovest sold out the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, marking a turning point in his career. Inspired by this success, he began hosting annual “Fill Up” concerts in different stadiums across the country, including Orlando Stadium (2016), FNB Stadium (2017) in Johannesburg, Moses Mabhida Stadium (2018) in Durban, and Royal Bafokeng Stadium (2019) in North West, all of which were wildly successful.


Cassper Nyovest was born on December 16, 1990. He will be turning 33 in December this year. Cassper holds a show every year in his hometown, same month as his birthday. The show is dubbed ‘Fresh Prince Of Maftown’, and in 2018 he hosted one big birthday party that trended.

“Maftown… I’m coming home to celebrate my birthday, but we’ve got a lot to celebrate!!! 10 Million sales!!! The history we made at FNB Stadium!!!” he wrote on Twitter.

Cassper Nyovest Girlfriend

Cassper Nyovest has had two high-profile relationships in his life. He first began dating Boity Thulo when they were both teenagers, but their relationship ended in their early twenties, in 2015.

The rapper was also linked to Amanda du-Pont, and the pair shared a kiss on stage at the 2014 Channel O Awards. However, their relationship eventually soured, and the public fallout was evidenced when Cassper changed the lyrics of his song “Phumakim” to say that even Amanda du Pont wasn’t good enough for him. The original lyrics suggested that he only wanted to be with someone as famous as him.

In 2018, Cassper began dating Thobeka Majozi, though the couple initially kept their relationship under wraps. They hinted at their romance on social media and were spotted on a “baecation,” but refrained from sharing any pictures together, despite being clearly together.
