Cassper Nyovest has ditched his signature ponytail which has been a part of his ‘stage persona’ ever since he burst onto the hip-hop scene.
Cassper debuted his new look on the MTV MAMAs red carpet on Saturday night at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg. Dressed in a slick black and white tuxedo – Mr Doc Shebeleza looked smoking-hot.
Speaking on the red carpet about ditching his ponytail which has been a huge part of his brand for years, Cassper said that it’s part of his ‘new image’.
“I’m growing up bro, my brand is growing up. I’m a CEO now. It’s time for me to boss up and clean up,” Cassper said
The rapper added that those close to him reacted emotionally when he told them about the decision to cut his ponytail.
“I didn’t know how much of an emotional attachment people had to it. If the guy who was cutting my hair was like, ‘man I can’t believe you making me do this’,” he said,
Cassper added that as an artist you should never be afraid of change.
