He may be one of the wealthiest artists in the country, but just like the rest of Mzansi, Cassper Nyovest is gatvol of loadshedding!

The Sweet and Short hitmaker – who lives in a mega mansion in a wealthy suburb in Gauteng – took to his Twitter account to rant about Eskom and their decision to reinstate a power blackout across South Africa.


Just like his fans, Cassper Nyovest is NOT immune to loadshedding.

In fact, Don Billiato himself has been subjected to an unprecedented amount of power outage, which he finds infuriating.

He tweeted: “I’m definitely going off-grid! I can’t take this load shedding shit no more! The electricity in my area went off from 9am to to 7pm and then it went off now at 10pm. It’s an expensive decision Mara noh fok, these people don’t give a f***! I definitely didn’t miss this!”

Yoh next time try finding a suitable house not far from the hospital , I literally live 2mins away from our hospital I don’t even know what loadshedding is since it started, even if eskom knows they use generators but the closest ones we never suffer from loadshedding

One follower told the star to “make his vote count” in the coming elections …

And then there was a fan who asked the Braai Show Host to use his money and influence to find a solution to loadshedding…

Cassper you should be thinking of starting a company that’ll solve this problem, and I’m only saying this because I don’t have the financial and influencial power like you to pull this off.
