After weeks of speculation about his involvement in the inaugural Cotton Fest, rapper Cassper Nyovest has announced that he will not be performing at the festival. The rapper took to Twitter to announce it.
A lot of people have been asking me if I’m a surprise act for Cotton Fest. No I’m not , I wasn’t booked for the event or even asked to be part of it but I don’t have beef with not being part of it though. It’s dope to see SA hip hop unite & create dope moments. I’m all for that.

The news shocked fans who expected him on stage as Cotton Fest is the brainchild of his friend, Riky Rick. The festival features more than 80 acts on two stages for one day in a celebration of music and culture. The line-up features some of the country’s biggest names in the music industry and hip hop. Riky Rick will perform but AKA, Nasty C and Kwesta will also take to the stage.
