Covid-19 has had negative impacts on most people around the world with some losing their properties and unfortunately Cassper Nyovest happened to be one of those.
You’d recall that the rapper had always taken to his social media to express how the lockdown had affected him, at one point he had mentioned that should the lockdown period be extended he was clueless on how he’d carry on.
Cassper who recently welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend, Thobeka Majozi, revealed his survival strategy during the Covid-19 period. Speaking in a recent interview with Texx Talk, Cassper revealed that he had to sell two cars to avoid other assets being seized from him.
“It was scary at first, I won’t even lie. I didn’t know what was going to happen. Going from making hundreds of thousands per weekend to zero, it’s like ‘what the hell?’. I was used to a certain type of lifestyle and not worrying about money and the first 21 days were like alright, everybody had money somewhere, two months later everybody is broke and you really making no income.
“So thanks to just having other income streams besides making music I was able to survive and not lose anything. I sold two cars just to minimize my expenditure so I had to let go of a business vehicle and a personal vehicle. I kept my favourite car still and I kept my home and I was able to help my family members get through it,” Cassper revealed.
The Any Minute Now singer concluded by saying that he didn’t take much of a knock but couldn’t help but think of his industry peers who do not have multiple streams of income and only rely on money from shows.
“The fact that everything was cancelled was very scary, it just forced me to think and put more effort into growing my income streams and investing more outside of businesses that require me to be active so that was my experience with lockdown.”
