The wealth of AKA seeps into in his lifestyle and fashion sense. You can rarely catch him without a Rolex on his wrist or wearing something unfashionable. He also seems to be fond of luxurious means of transportation, as he owns a blue 2016 BMW X6M. While he is off tour, AKA stays at his gorgeous mansion in South Africa, which must have cost him quite a lot of money.
But enough about AKA, let’s talk about Cassper Nyovest.
Who is Cassper Nyovest?
Refiloe Maele Phoolo, who many of you know as the South African rapper and producer Cassper Nyovest, was born on December 16, 1990 in Mafikeng. Just like AKA, he started out young, as in 2004, he was a part of a band called Childhood Gangsta. The artist then moved on to the group called Slow Motion, but even then, he knew that he wanted to go solo, and that was exactly what he did.
After being featured on HHP’s track called Wamo Tseba Mtho, Cassper earned his shot at fame, and he used it wisely. In 2013, he released his first single, and a year later, the world saw his debut album Tsholofelo.
Ever since then, the musician has been enjoying his fame, as he got to perform on the same stage as many renowned hip-hop artists, see his singles top the music charts and become quite a star. Find him @CassperNyovest on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see more of his life.
What is interesting is that Nyovest actually owes a bit of his fame to AKA, as the two artists have had beef since the beginning of Cassper’s career. Both of the musicians recorded diss tracks about one another, which gained quite a lot of attention to both of them. Taking into account that Cassper Nyovest has a history with AKA, it is interesting to see whether he has managed to become quite as rich as his adversary. Make your prediction before you continue reading.

Now, when it comes to Cassper’s net worth, things get a little complicated. It seems like nobody can come to the unanimous decision about it! For instance, TheNetWorthPortal puts it at $800 thousand, while CelebrityNetWorth claims that it is as much as $3 million.
Either way, if you have guessed that Cassper Nyovest was richer than AKA, unfortunately, you were wrong. That said, the younger artist has not been around for as long as AKA, and he still has a bright future ahead of him.
This comparison aside, Cassper is still very wealthy. Not every artist can boast such fortunes as Nyovest. In addition to the sales of his music and concert tickets, the musician also earns income through his own record label called Family Tree (founded in 2014).
In addition to that, he endorses several big brands, such as Castle Lite, KFC and Ciroc. The latter deal is reported to be worth about $2.5 million, but it might be just a rumour. In 2015, Cassper collaborated with MTN and AG Mobile to release a phone called AG Hashtag, which he partly designed.
Nyovest enjoys life to the fullest, wearing brand clothes and accessories, driving luxurious cars and living in big mansions. He has a house in Kyalami, a BMW, and he dreams about getting a new Rolls Royce. Who knows, maybe in a few months, his dreams might come true!
As you can see, Cassper still has a long way to go before he can have a wealth-measuring contest with someone like AKA. However, taking into account how fast he is growing, we are certain it will not take all that long before he gets there. Nevertheless, both of these artists are very talented and deserve all the success and wealth that they have. Good luck to both of them in their careers!
