Award-winning rapper Cassper Nyovest has received an outpouring of congratulatory messages from fellow industry mates and South Africans for filling up FNB stadium over the weekend. The star’s #FillUpFNB concert saw a whopping 68 000 fans flock to the stadium to make history. The rapper made history by being the first South African hip-hop artist to ever hold a concert at the stadium and receive such a massive turn out.
This is Cassper’s third time filling up a stadium. The 28-year-old began with Fill up the Dome which boasted 20 000 seats in 2015. Last year he doubled that number at Orlando Stadium and hours after Saturday’s concert he announced he is taking the concert to Moses Mabhida Stadium in 2018.

Here’s a look at the love he received.

What @CassperNyovest managed to do last night was nothing short of remarkable. I’m trying to work out how people think they possibly could throw any hate at this achievement????Let’s just give credit where it’s due.

To have witnessed this leaves me with chills. A lot can be & should be said about this feat that @casspernyovest & his team achieved, my perspective: #FillUpFNBStadium is a testament of what God can do when His power meets a willing heart, a determined spirit, & limitless faith. pic.twitter.com/RSipsK9Qin
