Cassper Nyovest's 'Amademoni' and 'Good For That' Certified Gold and Platinum Respectively.

Cassper Nyovest Celebrates 'Amademoni' and 'Good For That' Certifications

Cassper Nyovest's two singles 'Amademoni' and 'Good For That' have been certified gold and platinum respectively just three weeks after his fifth studio album 'A.M.N (Any Minute Now)' was released.

Cassper Nyovest's "Good for That" and "Amademoni" have reportedly reached platinum and gold status respectively. The two singles feature on the South African rapper's 5th studio album A.M.N (Any Minute Now) which has been in circulation for only three weeks now and is currently sitting at the number one spot on all music streaming platforms in South Africa. The new father recently shared the good news on social media.

Tweezy, the famed hip-hop producer of Cassper's "Amademoni" also joined in on the celebration of the news.

A.M.N (Any Minute Now) was undeniably the much-anticipated album from "Mr Fill Up" with the release of "Good for That" being well-received while "Amademoni" had mixed reactions. The single is heavily influenced by UK Drill, a musical trend which hasn't caught on with the South African music market as yet. Never one to be afraid of experimentation, Cassper responded to the mixed reactions from fans saying, "Being an artist means taking risks and breaking boundaries, this single is as I wanted it to be, SA will definitely see more of Drill from me."

And now that "Amademoni" has been certified gold, fans are repenting (and hilariously so) for their initial cold shoulder to the track.
