Cassper Nyovest switches up the game with two new videos for new single

In an unprecedented move, much like his secret releasing of his album on iTunes during Women’s day, Cassper Nyovest has released two – yes, count them – videos for his new single, “Tsibip”.

To answer your first question, “Tsibip” receives two videos because Cassper Nyovest has repeatedly proved that he doesn’t do things by…

Happy Birthday @mixo_mm ❤️ http://tmblr.co/ZMs1ou1PVoi9l

When I woke up this morning, one of the first things I did was text Mixo (who if you claim to know me you should know is the one true love of my life).

I told her that I’d be dedicating today to her. She might’ve thought that that meant I’d change my WhatsApp profile picture to her beautiful face (which incidentally is the same face in the picture above only about 8 or 9 years ago). She didn’t get that. Perhaps she thought I would periodically tweet 20 tweets through the day to express my love for her. I considered this. She didn’t get that. Or maybe she hoped I’d get her a VIP entry to the Beatenberg launch next week. I considered this. She did get that actually. But not even this was my biggest expression of my love for this human being.

Taking from my un-executed Twitter consideration, I now list - in no order that’s meant to be taken too seriously really - why she’s worth every blessing that’s come her way since 29 August 1994.

1. I love her. I’m actually properly in love with her. We’re married, didn’t you know? Facebook never lies (sometimes). So cross-check and confirm there.

2. She knows music is my life and so she introduces me to dope shit like The Internet and The Jet Age of Tomorrow. She’s the truth.

3. She has grown into a Tweleb/Twitter Kool Kid/Twipster/Twitter-what-what-who’s-who of sorts. And she’s still down for me. And everyone else, ja, but I’m writing this so.

4. She was a proud Tsonga girl when I met her and now she has grown into a beautiful, beaming Tsonga woman. Gotdamn, gotdamn, gotdayum!

5. She endured all those terrible songs I wrote for her when we were in high school. And even THAT date. Mmhmm. I said it. LMAO. She knows. I needn’t elaborate.

6. When I turned 21 earlier this year, she made missions and came through. With Mondli even. Guys. But are you feeling the love nje? Should be by now. I mean.

7. Every time I see her she makes me smile. ‘Nuff said.

8. Every time I see her, her swag is on point. Gotdamn!

9. She puts me in order even when I don’t wanna hear it some times. Ey. You know these Tsonga women.

10. She’s able to laugh with me about the fact that her mother stays side-eyeing me every time I visit here in Nelspruit. LMAOOOOOOO.

11. She trusts me with her boyfriend issues. If only these boys knew shem. I can make things really difficult for them. But I choose to see Mixo happy. :-)

12. I can count on her for any damn thing under the damn sun. Seriously. The girl comes through yo! Even when I ask her to do things that aren’t her forte - like write an album review. Lol

13. I can trust her with anything. This point has a branch-off point which we’ll revisit in point 20. I mean. The things she knows about this industry and things I’ve done with people of this industry. Hahahaha. Well, well, well.

14. I told her one of my biggest secrets and she made it okay. And I know you’re reading this now so just so you know this is not about point 20 but rather about a nightmare I had once. Which leads me to the next point…

15. She gave me the best advice about how to deal with it and she always gives the best damn advice.

16. She keeps my secrets.

17. She always remembers to tell me she loves me. And I never told her this but I love that she calls me ‘boo’. :-)

18. She’s at UWC, I’m at UCT but missions are still made to see each other. And when I do see her, it feels as though we’d last seen each other a minute before.

19. She’s still the same, “village girl bougie,” God-fearing boo I met five years ago.

20. And then it hit me today. She’s literally the only person (okay minus my brother but that was coaxed out of me) that I ever came out to. Everyone else just sort figured it out by who I gravitated to on dingy dancefloors in Cape Town or by who I dated.

This is cheesy but “I don’t know why you love me / And that’s why I love you.”

I love you Mixo. Happy Birthday. I pray that God blesses you with his very best. Stay beautiful, strong, intelligent, innovative, sexy, stylish, confident, beaming, bright, fresh, fierce, fun, and exciting Tsonga woman.

I love you always and always.
