Oskido has offered Cassper Nyovest some crucial advice following the rappera��s SAMA snub this week.
Cassper Nyovest seems to have finally seen the light. The rapper, who was planning to boycott the South African Music Awards, has changed his mind. This comes after industry legend, Oskido gave the hip-hop star some words of wisdom. Cassper started ranting on Twitter after his Doc Shebeleza track was snubbed in the Record of the Year category.
His fans watched as the rapper voiced his frustrations on the social networking site. Instead of sitting back and watching like the rest of the Twittersphere did, Oskido decided to give some valuable advice to the rapper.
Oskido wrote on Twitter: a�?@casspernyovest as long as you are an independent record label forget @thesamas. Whata��s important is to keep standing like @KalawaJazmee #21years in the music industry but still rocking.a�?
One big thing that he emphasised was that the music industry is not about the awards. a�?Your fans are your awards,a�? he added. The successful musician revealed that he won his first SAMA after 19 years in the game. He then told Cassper not to boycott the show and to focus on having fun at the event. a�?If you dona��t win life goes on. Whata��s important is the street cred in order for you to last in this industry. #Ibelieve.a�?
Oskidoa��s advice was reasonable and practical, and on top of all that, ita��s clearly worked because Cassper has changed his mind. He took to Twitter and wrote: a�?@OskidoIBelieve thank you for the advice grootman. I was planning on boycotting the event but I will take your advice and go and have fun.a�? - AFP
