Cassper Nyovest and Benny Mayengani #FillUp War Gets Messier
As far as we know, muso Cassper Nyovest has been making ambitious attempts to fill up stadiums as far back as 2017.
In that year in question, he held his “Fill Up FNB Stadium,” and had backup from other A-list artistes including Babes Wodumo, Kwesta, A-Reece, Somizi, Riky Rick, and Nadia Nakai. The list is by no means comprehensive.
He was still in the fill up fever this year as well. In early June, he announced another ambitious “fill up” project. This time, though, he is moving a new stadium altogether.
The theme of this concert is Fill Up Moses Mabhida Stadium. The concert is scheduled to hold on Saturday December 1, 2018, and the “Tito Mboweni” hitmaker is high on expectation.
Apparently, the “Fill Up” fever has caught on in Mzansi, as Tsonga music star, Benny Mayengani is up with his own “Fill Up” game running on the theme #FillUpGanyaniStadium.
But Mufasa isn’t having it. And plans to take legal action against Benny Mayengani is supposedly in the works. He is insisting the phrase #FillUp is his trademark, and to use it Benny Mayengani has to pay.
While some celebrities have supported Cassper Nyovest. Simphiwe Dana, for instance, said that Benny Mayengani should not copy Mufasa’s idea.
However, much of Twitter does’t think so. It has emerged that the EFF ls siding with Benny Mayengani. In a atatement, it described Cassper Nyovest’s move as “greedy,” and even describing his lawyers as “lousy”.
See the full press statement by the EFF below, as well as the reaction of some Twitter fans to Mufasa’s plant to sue Benny Mayengani.
