Cassper Nyovest Stars In 'Doc Shebeleza'

Johannesburg rapper Cassper Nyovest stars in the video for 'Doc Shebeleza' directed by Nicky Campos.


Mafikeng rap king Cassper Nyovest crashed hard on our radar in 2013 with his screwed and chopped song of the year with Okmalumkoolkat. Riding high on "Gusheshe" waves going into 2014, Nyovest hit January with a scorching victory lap on "Doc Shebeleza." His follow-up single, which plays like South Africa’s answer to Migos’ ATL rap anthem “Versace," may just go down as Joburg's definitive banger of the year. For months we've awaited a video, and after an onslaught of Nyovest's South African TV appearances on Friday, we now have one from director Nicky Campos. With it comes the prologue "This is not another story about the hood. This is a story about a thug living with six wives and one dangerous man," which is essentially how the video plays out. Watch Cassper Nyovest star in the "Doc Shebeleza" video below.

The new EP comes alongside the news that Tems has signed to Since '93/RCA Records and been announced as Apple Music's latest Up Next artist.
