Cassper Nyovest and AKA to perform for nyaope awareness

These two giants may not be friends but have agreed to help raise awareness of nyaope drug addiction in South Africa. This is happening 16 June 2019, on Youth Day.

Both artists have, in the past, snubbed events because the other is there.

In a press release for the event, it was stated that the local rap rivals will take to the stage in Maboloka, Brits, to commemorate the third anniversary of Join the Movement, a festival to raise awareness of nyaope addiction in the region.




The annual festival aims to continue its mission to address the challenges affecting the youth of today, particularly substance abuse. The event is free for the youth and organised by Isibaya actress and philanthropist Zinhle Ngwenya and her husband Robert Ngwenya’s MZ Ngwenya Foundation.

“I started the Join the Movement to make a difference in the lives of the youth and, with the prevalence of substance abuse, it’s crucial that we create a platform for conversations around curbing drug abuse and uplifting our youth,” Zinhle explained.

Joining AKA and Cassper Nyovest for the awareness performance will be the likes of DJ Tira, Kwesta, Emtee, Naak Musiq, Mlindo, Busiswa, Sjava and many more.
