HE went from being criticised on social media to dressing up one of Mzansi’s best artists!
Rapper Cassper Nyovest was seen wearing a Tshepo The Jeanmaker outfit over the weekend and now it is all the rage.
In fact, Cassper loved the outfit so much, he wore it two days in a row!
Casper opened his #FillupMosesMabhida concert in the jean-to-jean outfit on Saturday and also wore it at the opening for American stars Beyoncè and Jay-Z at the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday.
Tshepo The Jeanmaker designer Tshepo Mohlala said it was a moment he had waited for all his life.
“I knew he was going to wear the outfit at his concert, but I did not know he would also wear it at the Global Citizen Festival.”
He said he was humbled and excited.
“My outfit was worn on big stages and that makes me really happy,” he said.
Tshepo said it took him two days to complete the outfit.
“Cassper said he needed something comfortable. We did not make any fittings and he did not have a specific design, but when he saw the outfit he was like a baby seeing a lollipop,” he said.
Tshepo said he appreciates the support from people in Mzansi, especially Cassper.
“The response from the public has been positive. People were applauding Casper for wearing a local brand and I am happy about that,” he said.
