It is not news that one of SA’s biggest hip-hop artist and TV personality and the lovely Boity Thulo have chemistry. With them having dated not once, not twice, but three times! Refiloe Phoolo, commonly known as Cassper NYovest is said to be still smitten with Boitumelo Thulo. This led to a rather hilarious but deep SeTswana conversation on Twitter, following reports that Boity had a new man in her life. We can’t help but question if there still is hope between the two.
Cassper Nyovest rose to fame in 2013 following the release of his single, Gusheshe from his debut album, Tsholofelo. He has humble beginnings and at the age of 16 this talented artist left school to pursue his passion in Johannesburg. He mentions this in his hit song “Mama I made it,” when giving thanks to his mother and raps that “You let me drop out of school…your friends used to call you a fool.” Cassper is signed to his own independent label and media company, “Family Tree.”
Cassper Nyovest still respects Boity in spite of their differences. He apologises to his ex in his song, “Super Ex,” and states how he thought that they could fix their relationship before Boity announced their breakup. The pair first dated when Boity was 16 then reconnected again when she was 19. Nyovest pulled out all the steps when he asked her out on the set of her photoshoot, literally making it seem as if he was proposing.
The pair were a power couple and seemed inseparable, seeing that they went on vacations together, they went hand in hand to the 2015 MAMA awards and Boity was there to support her man in his quest to #FillTheDome. This went down in history as probably one of the first local artists to fill up the whole Dome in South Africa. Boity was there through it all and even highlights that she took her man to their vacation in Zanzibar. We would thus be justified in assuming that the fame and the money got to Cassper’s head as he admits to cheating on Boity and saying how he gave the side chicks Boity’s side of the bed.
Cassper still can not get enough of his ex. The hip-hop artist was caught on camera licking his lips and saying “eish ntwana,” when Boity pitched up unexpectedly behind him during an interview with Club 808. This sent his Twitter followers into a frenzy and leading us to believe that there might be hope for rekindling a relationship between the two. We really hope the two are getting back together because they make a perfect power couple.
