Music executive Nota Baloyi claims that he offered rappers AKA and Cassper Nyovest R1 million each to do a joint album via an Instagram post on 4 June.
It seems the rappers pride their beef over their pockets and have not accepted the offer. This means that each of the rappers would rather lose R1 million than make a joint album together.
AKA and Cassper: The boxing match that never happened
Media personality Somizi once asked Cassper Nyovest if he would ever record an album with AKA in the next 20 years and the responded by saying that that would never happen, but that he would love to give AKA a knock-out in the ring.
“Nah that is never gonna happen, when it comes to AKA I know him, he was my friend. Me and him could never be buddies and if I cant gel with you from that level then I can’t make music with you, I see myself getting in the ring and knocking him out,” he answered as per Zalebs.
Cassper Nyovest and AKA however have still not stepped into the ring for the boxing match they had been going back and forth about for years now. After arguments surrounding the contract arose, AKA proved that he did in fact sign by posting screenshots of the letter of offer and messages that he sent that were ignored back in January.
A few days later, Cassper Nyovest dismissed the fight via a tweet saying “enough about the fight, I know it’s boring now”, and continued to talk about a new project and why the fight will not happen.
WHO WILL NOTA BALOYI GIVE THE R2 MILLION TO NOW?
In his Instagram post, Nota Baloyi stated that he still has the R2 million and asked his 25 800 followers who he should pass the offer on to.
“I offered AKA and Capper a million rand each to do a joint album… I still have that money on the table. Who does it make business sense for me to offer the same deal to?” wrote Baloyi on Instagram.
Fans in the comments section gave some helpful suggestions. The music executive replied to the Makwa and Kwesta suggestion saying it would not make sense because it needs to be profitable.
“Wouldn’t make business sense, It needs to recoup and make a profit!” he wrote.
He seemed to like the idea of Black Coffee and Prince Kaybee.
“Hmm, damn I wasn’t thinking outside of SA Hip-hop, that’s a brilliant combination though!” he wrote.
When a fan suggested AKA and KO, Baloyi revealed that the selected musos needed to have some kind of tension between them.
“Over-saturated combo… There needs to be some sort of tension between the acts,” wrote Baloyi.
