Cassper Nyovest’s Verse on Frank Casino’s ‘Sudden’ Is Pure Heat

Well done, Nyovest!

Frank Casino's new EP, Heroes of Tomorrow, came out today. The four-track project sees the East Rand MC doing what he does best, and that's drippin' that sauce with his commanding voice over growling 808s.

Frank is potent throughout, but the highlight of the project is Cassper Nyovest's guest verse on the closing song "Sudden," which also features Major League.


Every now and then, Nyovest reminds heads that he is indeed a skilled rapper (think the last verse of "Ngiyekeleni" and the songs "I Hope You Bought It" and "Tsibip," among others).

This new verse is one of those instances. The man drops fact after fact with an unmatched flair, rhyming syllables and hitting mid and end rhymes like it's not a thing. He sounds comfortable and raps with a charisma that matches his stature.

He reminds us of his accolades, which make him years ahead of everyone. He raps, "Niggas is up in their feelings/ I can't relate, boy, I'm chillin'/ Stadium status, status/ I'm 'bout to fill up Mabhida/ Counting my racks with my feet up," and "They used to sleep on my rhymes, now I'm sleeping on silk/ I'm getting better with time, y'all niggas aging like milk."

He also responds to those who feel he's not hip-hop enough because of his preference to rap over kwaito beats on songs like "Getsa Getsa 2.0" and "Hase Mo States." Emtee will feel that shit. Cass raps:

"Boardrooms with my pants down/ Niggas know I'm the benchmark/ All my albums went platinum/ Own' em all 'cause I'm damn smart/ Niggas saying I'm a dancer/ Benylin ya le tsentša."

'Dhalinyaro' Is the Female Coming-of-Age Story Bringing Djibouti's Film Industry to Life

The must-watch film, from Lula Ali Ismaïl, paints a novel picture of Djibouti's capital city through the story of three friends.

If you're having a tough time recalling the last movie you watched from Djibouti, it's likely because you have never watched one before. With an almost non-existent film industry in the country, Lula Ali Ismaïl, tells a beautiful coming of age story of three young female Djiboutian teenagers at the cusp of womanhood. Dhalinyaro offers a never-before-seen view of Djibouti City as a stunning, dynamic city that blends modernity and tradition—a city in which the youth, like all youth everywhere, struggle to decide what their futures will look like. It's a beautiful story of friendship, family, dreams and love from a female filmmaker who wants to tell a "universal story of youth," but set in the country she loves—Djibouti.

The story revolves around the lives of three young friends from different socio-economic backgrounds, with completely varied attitudes towards life, but bound by a deep friendship. There is Asma, the conservative academic genius who dreams of going to medical school and hails from a modest family. Hibo, a rebellious, liberal, spoiled girl from a very wealthy family who learns to be a better friend as the film evolves and finally Deka. Deka is the binding force in the friendship, a brilliant though sometimes naïve teen who finds herself torn between her divorced mother's ambitions to give her a better life having saved up all her life for her to go to university abroad, and her own conviction that she wants to study and succeed in her own country.

Okayafrica contributor, Ciku Kimeria speaks to Ismaïl on her groundbreaking film, her hopes for the filmmaking industry and the universality of stories.
