High School dropout, Cassper Nyovest, who famously left school after failing grade 10 to pursue a rap career, has recently inked a 7 figure deal with Drip Sneakers worth a whopping R100 million.
Cassper called the partnership with Drip Sneakers #TheLegacyDeal implying that his legacy is secured forever with this one. This is really huge especially for someone who’s constantly been berated online for failing grade 10.
After dropping out, Cassper had no choice but to leave Mafikeng for Johannesburg to start pursuing his rap career seriously and oh boy oh boy, he struggled dismally at first but because his “WHY” was strong enough, he decided to persevere.
Being a high school dropout meant Cassper had to take any job possible to make ends meet and pay up for studio time. Believe it or not, Cassper once worked as a pamphlet distributer for major companies like Shoprite and Bradlows, he even rapped about it in songs.
This goes on to show that when you’re still in the start up mode, you should take anything that comes your way to make ends meet until your hustle finally starts paying dividends.
What people don’t realize about this mega deal is that it didn’t happen overnight, it took years and years of Cassper putting out hits that people enjoyed. It took years of Cassper keeping his brand clean, It took years of Cassper filling up stadiums and finally, it took years of Cassper being independent and disciplined.
The Cassper Nyovest story really proves anyone can come from the mud and be successful in life as long as they believe in themselves and have a vision for their future. It doesn’t matter what your parents, naysayers or the so called “odds” say, you can be successful despite them.
So the take home massage for you today is to always attack your dreams with everything you got. Your mega deal is waiting for you in the future.
