Cassper Nyovest’s #FillupRoyalBafokeng A Magical Homecoming

Published

on

Cassper Nyovest’s #FillupRoyalBafokeng homecoming edition was nothing short of magical. The 5th installment of the historic Fill Up concerts took place this past Sunday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg, North West.

A true Superstar, Cassper Nyovest gave a spectacular three-hour performance that was authentically African, beautifully choreographed, and entailed world-class visual and sound production.

Raising the bar year after year, Cassper Nyovest’s perfectionism was loud and clear during his live set which included remarkable detail such as three hair changes – from blonde to orange to pink, custom made wardrobe, a memorable performance moment with his father, a tribute to the late HHP, an action call for men to do better as he spoke against gender-based violence and so much more.

FillupRoyalBafokeng ended on a high note as the close of the show ushered in Cassper Nyovest’s 29th birthday.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better homecoming! The best birthday present ever! We’re doing it again next year. Thank you, Rustenburg!” expresses Cassper Nyovest.

There’s nothing comparable locally to the show Cassper Nyovest puts on for his Fill Up concerts and this sets him apart time and time again.

Half a decade of Fill Up concerts have also marked for the first-time true support from corporate South Africa. #FillupRoyalBafokeng was supported by headline sponsor, Samsung, and partners such as Standard Bank, Ciroc, Castle Lite, Department of Sports, Arts, Culture & Recreation, South African Tourism and SABC 1.

Below are sentiments from some of the partners as to why they chose to partner with Cassper Nyovest’s #FillupRoyalBafokeng.

“Samsung is proud to be the headline sponsor of Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up Royal Bafokeng. Cassper is a pioneer intent on blazing new trails and bringing joy to his fans, a vision Samsung has always shared. His “Fill Up” concept was birthed from the notion that South Africa musicians cannot fill up stadiums without an international act and Cassper has proven people wrong. This is seamlessly aligned with Samsung’s brand ethos of “Do What You Can’t”. Samsung is proud to support innovative local artists and is firmly behind Cassper as he once again raises the bar in the South African music industry.” – Edward Makwana, Group Public Relations Lead, Corporate Marketing Division, Samsung.

“CÎROC is about celebrating success and being at the forefront of what’s hot, and Cassper as well as Fill Up is an epitome of this. He is living his dream. We believe that Cassper has arrived and continues to arrive which makes him the ultimate lifestyle aspiration and match for our brand. Together with Cassper, we will celebrate memorable on arrival moments and provide our consumers the access to new world luxury experiences.” – Candice Ngcobo, Senior Brand Manager, CÎROC.

“SABC 1 has always supported Cassper’s dream of Fill Up. His story inspires millions of young South Africans which is a strong value of the SABC 1 brand, inspiring ordinary South Africans to be more, achieve more and not to stop dreaming and believing in themselves. We see our role as being an enabler of dreams, giving a platform to a young artist to achieve his dreams. We have been doing this with Cassper Nyovest for years now and this edition is no different. We are proud to be the media partner of Fill UP Royal Bafokeng.” – Dichaba Phalatse, Network Marketing Manager – SABC 1, 2 & 3.

“This partnership with Universal Music and Cassper came about after Cassper’s Move for Me music video which captured the South African travel experience perfectly. As lifestyle events are a big drawcard for travel, the #FillUp concert is the most appropriate platform to encourage South Africans to travel their own country.” – Mashoto Mokgethi, Domestic Hub Head at South African Tourism.

BBNaija: Biggie Serves The Ultimate Twist As Jackie B And Jay Paul Emerge Heads Of House

Published

on

For this week’s Head of House (HoH) challenge, the BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemates were all gingered to bring their A-game after the triple eviction last Sunday night. In a shocking twist, Big Brother told the housemates that tonight’s HoH challenge and nomination process would be rolled into one.

The male and female to finish the fastest would become the ‘Heads’ of House and will share the lounge as well as receive joint immunity. At the end of the challenge, the other 15 housemates will be put up for possible eviction.

The first challenge required the housemates to drink whatever number they roll on the dice. The second challenge required the housemates to eat eggs soaked in a milky concoction before moving on to the next challenge. For challenge number three, the housemates had to enter the slimy pool and pick two keys, which they dropped in a bucket held by a skeleton. The fourth challenge required them to crawl slowly across a slippery path from one end to another. And for the fifth and final challenge, the housemates used a straw to transfer a reddish concoction into beakers.

Saga had the honour of starting the game, but luck wasn’t on his side as he didn’t find any of the keys. Nini took on the challenge, tried very hard not to puke and ended up without a key. WhiteMoney gave it his best but didn’t find a key as well. At the end of the grueling challenge, Jackie B and Jay Paul emerged winners of the double HoH whilst the rest of the housemates were automatically put up for possible eviction on Sunday, 5 September.

The voting lines opened on Monday at 8pm and will close on Thursday, 2nd September at 9pm.

Voting will be on the Africa Magic website and via the MyDStv and MyGOtv apps. Abeg is the headline sponsor of Big Brother Naija season 6, and the associate sponsor is Patricia.
