The 2016 BET Awards are few months away, and — trust us — you don’t want to miss it. The network is pulling out all the stops for its 15th annual award show, booking A-list hosts and performers for the evening’s events. We here at AfroMirror believe that this year Cassper Nyovest deserves to be nominated, due to a number of reasons. Do you agree with us? Let us know in the comments section
1. Cassper’s music has universal appeal. The artist makes music that both makes one think as well as jam. The multi-talented artist deserves to be nominated this year for his efforts, since some even claim he was arguably the most influential African artist last year.
2. Undoubtedly, Cassper is the only South African musician to have been able to fill the Dome which is most used by international acts but he filled it to the brim. Again he has single handed taking the South African hiphop music to the international music market.
3. Cassper’s dynamism is definitely one of his best qualities. His ability to whip a crowd into a frenzy with his songs, as well as being able to switch genres with his various features makes him a sure bet for another nomination this year.
4. Cassper’s collaborations with various international artists like The Game, Hip Hop Pantsula, Okmalumkoolkat, Riky Rick, Talib Kweli, Casey Veggies, DJ Drama, The Game, D’banj means he has gained more experience over the past year both as an artist and a person. This musical maturity, experience and exposure gives him an upper hand, and makes it a sure bet that he will be nominated this year as well.
5. Finally, Cassper’s influence in the music industry this past year has been unparalleled. Indeed very few artists can compare themselves to him with respect to the number of hits written, composed and produced by Mr. Nyovest.
