Black Coffee also agreed with Cassper as he shared a sad emoji and said “eish.” Cassper added that it is ‘our own people who target successful people, “Hai grootman its bad. We work hard only to become targeted by our own people
Cassper’s tweets were referencing this incident of the killing of Glenda and the shooting of Max’s Lifestyle owner, Max Mqadi. He said, “I’m so Glad Max made it out alive. Such an inspiring man. Such a strong black man. A legend. South Africa is not safe man. It’s becoming more and more dangerous to be successful.”
Cassper continued saying they do not step on anybody’s toes yet they are targeted. He calls for fewer deaths: “Stay prayed up and hope we make it through, raise our kids and teach them how to survive. We don’t even step on nobody’s toes and we are still not safe. God be with all the good hearts. More love, more life, less hate, less death.”
