Nyovest also revealed the shocking costs of the concerts and it was R15 Million, the stage alone costed him R5,2 million. “The show does not make money. We don’t make a profit; I’m investing in the industry and the name Cassper Nyovest. In time I will be amongst the greatest although I didn’t make enough money to show it.”
He went on say that this should be an inspiration to everyone, for them to not hesitate in investing on their dreams and talents and be willing to build a legacy no matter the cost. “Sometimes I feel like maybe I should stop investing so much in my craft and buy a Rolls Royce but I think I wouldn’t be as far as I am if I didn’t respect my craft,” he says.
