Cassper Nyovest Drops Fire Verse on Up-and-coming Rapper Mass The Difference’s ‘What’s Wrong With Me?’ Song

Listen to Mass The Difference's new song, featuring Cassper Nyovest.

Cassoer Nyovest was so impressed with up-and-coming rapper Mass The Difference's skills, he jumped on one of his songs, and dropped a show-stealing verse.


In his verse, the superstar rapper addresses haters, questions Twitter outrage ("Twitter shit is a lie, if niggas get away with beating girls on Instagram live, then the outrage is temporary"), lets us know that music industry is a scam, and gives his take on young women who sleep with married men for money.

He raps:

"Bitches acting like they working for the rags, you fool me/ Meanwhile these married men is paying for these bags and shoes/ Hope you know that these girls are depressed by you/ It's fucked up, cuz they busy chasing the life you selling 'em/ You can't afford it yourself, sleeping with married men for money/ And act like you working and post Fendi bags/ Glorified prostitution, and you barely care"

Mass The Difference is a potent lyricist with a delivery that's just as smooth as it is raw. He laces "What's Wrong With Me?" with sincere raps and a catchy vocal hook.

Yesterday, Nyovest retweeted a clip of a Mass The Difference song yesterday, and said he would jump on the song. According to the MC, he recorded his verse for the song yesterday morning, and shot a clip for his verse in the evening.

"What's Wrong With Me?" is a great mellow joint. The only flaw everyone should be able to pick up is the sloppy mixing and mastering, as Nyovest's vocals get a bit too loud. But this is probably just an un-mastered version.

Listen to "What's Wrong With Me?" below, and/or download it here. Check out more of Mass' latest project Loud Silence 2 underneath.

This New Documentary Sheds Light On the History of a Beloved Nigerian Staple—Agege Bread

'Fresh Agege Bread' by Chika Okoli's FABA gives us a much-needed insight into the popularity of Nigeria's coveted Agege Bread.

This new documentary following Nigeria's own Agege Bread contributes to the need of preserving and documenting food culture on the continent.

In Fresh Agege Bread, directed and produced by filmmaker Chika Okoli of FABA (For Africans By Africans), we follow food researcher Ozoz Sokoh as she traces the history and popularity of Agege Bread featuring its pioneering bakers, community figureheads and locals. The documentary touches on the rise of the booming product as well as addresses some of the controversies around the health and safety measures applied in the production of this staple.

For Okoli, the inability to find such insights about this significant food in Nigerian culture is what inspired her to develop this documentary.

"Agege Bread is so popular in Lagos but shockingly, there is very little information about it online and the same can be said about other cultural elements that are significant to our way of life," she shares with us.

Germany to Return Stolen 15th Century Stone Cross to Namibia

Germany's Culture Minister says the move is a "clear sign" that the country is committed to coming to terms with its colonial past.

In the latest development in the movement towards African art repatriation, the German government will return a 15th-century Portuguese stone cross that has been in its possession since the colonial era, back to its original home in Namibia.

The cross was a navigation landmark placed on the coastline of present-day Namibia in 1496, before it was taken in the late 17th century under German colonial rule, BBC Africa reports.

The Namibian government put out a request for its return back in 2017, and the request was formally approved today by the Berlin Museum. The cross is set to be returned in August, according to a statement from the museum.
