Hip-hop rapper turned Amapiano musician Cassper Nyovest has been accused by tweeps for allegedly stealing an Amapiano tune from upcoming artist Mpura.
Cassper released his highly anticipated Amapiano track called ‘Angisho’ Guys, last week Friday. As much as his fans loved the song and grooved to it over the weekend, some could not help but spot a few similarities between his song and popular Amapiano artist Mpura.

Both Cassper and Mpura’s songs have the same title and, according to fans, some similarities in the chorus as well. Mpura released his version of the song in March, then a month later, Cassper does so too.
Many have claimed Cassper copied Mpura since he was the latest to release his song among the two, but Amapiano DJ Lady Du has stated otherwise.
Lady Du claims that the song originally belongs to Cassper and that Mpura is the one who stole it. She claims she is not defending Cassper because she is a featured artist but because she wants to stand for what is right, and according to her, that is the truth.
Commenting on one of the tweets slamming Mufasa, she said it was Cassper’s song to begin with. “He took a song out of the original studio. That’s wrong JR, that’s why it didn’t go anywhere!!! You can steal the plan but not the vision,” she explained.
She said even though Mpura is a good friend of hers, she stand for the truth and will expose it even if it will destroy her friendship with Mpura.
“I’ll never ever choose loyalty over honesty, I CANT STAND LIES!! If I lose a friend over honesty that’s fine. Lies need 10 other stories and I don’t have that time Mina. Aniyekeni ukubullshita amafans wenu, (stop playing your fans) stappppppp it,” she said in another tweet.

Cassper monitoring things in the background decided to boasted about the success of the song and thanked Lady Du for her contribution. “#AngishoGuys is the No 1 most played song in the country!!!! And all because of @Ladydu10 !!! Thank you!!!”
