Local rapper Cassper Nyovest had us shook to the core when he tweeted that he turned down the opportunity to see Beyoncé perform, and that he “probably” would have met her too.
Beyoncé made history as the first woman of colour to perform at the annual Coachella music festival in California on Saturday. Which made it even more shocking when the Doc Shebeleza hitmaker tweeted: “I was invited to go Watch Beyonce this weekend but I have to work. (sic)”
According to the tweet Cassper was invited by “one of the lead singers of one of the biggest bands in the world” and that he would have probably met Beyoncé through this connection.
Cassper admits that he was tempted, and almost “packed his bags” but instead he showed “self discipline” and commitment to his work.
I was invited to go Watch Beyonce this weekend but I have to work. The crazy thing is, I was invited by the lead singer of one of the biggest bands in world, I probably would’ve met Beyonce through him. I almost packed my bags and left but the way my self discipline is setup…..
