Cassper Nyovest will play a five-a-side celebrity soccer match against L-Tido this Sunday in Soweto.
Cassper Nyovest dared rapper L-Tido to a five-a-side celebrity soccer match over social media in June 2018. The two have since posted regular updates on the impending match, eventually confirming that it is to take place on Sunday, 16 September 2018.
On Thursday, 13 September 2018 Nyovest took to social media again to punt his side as he revealed his first official team player, his childhood best friend and regular side-kick DJ Carpo.
Nyovest wrote, “Announcing the first player on my team!!!! It took a lot for me to sign superstar!!!! Come Sunday he’ll be kicking ass at the Nike Centre in Soweto !!! My dawg.@Carpo_mr_ #MufasaVs16V part 1.” He then posted a two-part comedy skit onto his social media pages featuring Carpo, who dons his characteristic silk robe, before entering Nyovest’s home swimming pool to list his outrageous demands for being part of the Sunday match.
L-Tido responded by naming his official players for the match. He named DJ Speedsta as the ‘self-appointed coach and captain’ of his side while announcing hip-hop artist Ma-E as one of his players.
The match will take place at the Soweto Nike Centre on Sunday, 16 September 2018 from 12:00 – 17:00. Entrance to the venue is free.
