Cassper Nyovest reveals genesis of beef with AKA
Cassper Nyovest exclusively revealed how the beef between him and Kiernan AKA Forbes.
Kiernan who died on the 10th of February after being shot in Durban had a long-term beef with Nyovest.
Though, Cassper attempted to squash the beef by having a boxing match with Supa Mega, but all effort was to no avail.
Speaking on L-Tido’s podcast, Nyovest said beefing the likes of Prince Kaybee means nothing to him, but the one he had with Forbes was real.
“The real beef started because of a song, it was because of Gusheshe… I made the song and I wanted Okmalumkoolkat on it, then Koolkat got on the song and he (AKA) loved it so much and he said let me put on a third verse. I was like nah, like this song is perfect and he came like three days back to back,” Cassper explained.
He said denying Kiernan from dropping a third verse sparked the beef, and later AKA confronted him to confirm the beef between them, which led to the release of the diss track, Composure.
“I feel like, he kinda felt like I was saying yoh I don’t need you cause I also said like I wouldn’t want you to be on my first hit,” Cassper said. “From there it got a bit sour, but I was like let me make another song for you, we have three songs together me and Kiernan so I was trying to make another Gusheshe for his project but he never used any of them.”
“One time we were at George Avakian’s studio, they were making (Living On The Edge) and I wanted to be on the song and I wasn’t big enough to be on the song, so they chose Kiernan to be on the song,” Cassper said.
Explaining how the two confirmed their beef, Cassper said; “we were chilling smoking outside and I said to him I want to be the greatest, I want to be the biggest. I’ve studied you, I’ve studied HHP, I want to be bigger and better than all of you guys, and I feel like that kinda like set it off.”
