South African rapper Cassper Nyovest has slammed claims of tension between himself and female rapper Nadia Nakai following her exit from his Family Tree record label.
Cass was asked by a fan on twitter to clarify reports that he and Bragga were not seeing eye to eye anymore following her exit and after she featured on AKA’s Braai Show.
He responded, “Nah but she left the label and we no longer work together so naturally we won’t hang as much. She’s got a new team and I’m sure she’ll be good cause she always did her own thing anyway.”
Nadia also came in to dismiss the rumour saying it was ‘all love’ between the the two.
Although Cass has never been vocal about his relationship with Nadia, the latter was the first to reveal her break up from Cass’ camp in an interview with Slikour.
“I am no longer with the Tree. I am working on my own record label. I need to be able to stand on my own. Funny enough, I was scared to tell Cass. After I told him, I could feel he was a bit sad, but we are good,” she said.
During the interview Bragga also revealed that there was once a strong tension between her and Cass after she appeared on AKA’s Braai Show and they went for eight months without talking to each other.
South-African based hip hop heavyweight, Nadia Nakai, has left Cassper Nyovest's recording stable, Family Tree.
The Chinhoyi born rapper was signed by Cassper Nyovest in 2016 and had been under his record label since then.
In an interview with Siya Metane on 'SlikourOnLife', Nadia Nakai spoke about her exit and decision to go solo.
"I am no longer with The Tree. I am working on my own record label.
"I need to be able to stand on my own. Funny enough, I was scared to tell Cass. After I told him, I could feel he was a bit sad, but we are good."
The multi-award-winning hip hop chanter added that while Cassper Nyovest who mentored her over the past 5 years had been sad to see her leave, he had been really supportive of her decision to start her own record label.
"He even suggested a few record label names for me to use.
"I will always hold Cass in the highest regard and respect because he's been very instrumental in my career and my life.
"I want to be able to get to a point where even when I have kids, I can still work on an artist and actively build their brand. I am a little bit scared but also super excited.
"I will always hold Cass in the highest regard and respect because he's been very instrumental in my career and life," she said.
