Cassper Nyovest And Lady Zamar Are Of Malawian Origins

Following news of controversial cleric, Shepherd Bushiri, shipping off back to his home country, Malawi, dodging the wheels of justice that were fast catching up with him, it emerged that singer and songwriter Lady Zamar is also Malawian.

Just a week after that revelation, rapper Casper Nyovest has also come out expressing undying love for his Malawian roots.

Cassper Nyovest And Lady Zamar Are Not Of South African Origin

Hip Hop megastar Cassper Nyovest is one person who is proud of his roots and does not shy away from speaking about his family origins.  The rapper, real name Refiloe Maele Phoolo, recently revealed that his family originated from Malawi.

Cassper who is set to play at a concert in Malawi next month expressed how honoured he is to perform in the country of his ancestry.  Mufasa went on to reveal that his grandfather had walked from Malawi to South Africa with a group of friends, before eventually settling in  Potchefstroom, in the North West.  This is a distance of at least 1 500 kilometres depending on the point of origin and route taken.

Writing about his heritage on social media platform Twitter, Cassper Nyovest said,

Performing in Malawi in December.  Always special for me cause that’s where my family tree starts. My grandfather walked from Malawi with a group of friends and settled in Potchefstroom.  Started a business from nothing and that’s where I get my entrepreneurial skills from.

South African social media users applauded Abuti FillUp for acknowledging his heritage and for arranging a performance in his home country.

Unsurprisingly, however, some people used the revelations about Malawi to poke fun at fugitive religious leaders, prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary.  The founding leaders of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church fled the country earlier this month after they were released on bail over charges of money laundering and fraud involving R102 million.

Social media users called on Cassper to bring back Bushiri after his performance while others called on him to bring back a large supply of anointing oil.  Below are some of the responses from social media users.
