Ten days before his most anticipated fight with rival rapper Priddy Ugly, Cassper Nyovest stated that he has lost sponsors and TV partners.
On October 1, the Sun Bet Arena at Time Square Casino in the Capital City will host the boxing battle between Nyovest and Priddy Ugly.
In a lengthy message published to Instagram early on Tuesday morning, the “Tito Mboweni” hitmaker lamented, “With Sponsors and TV partners bailing out this fight it’s going to take a miracle to turn it around but I ain’t gave up just yet.”
And it doesn’t appear that the news has dampened Nyovest’s attitude, as he told his fans that “instead of tossing and turning for hours,” he went for a run.
Mufasa, in response to a fan’s tweet asking where the concert would be shown, announced that SuperSport had pulled their sponsorship.
I’m hoping SuperSport will air this fight,” @tatteddiplomat tweeted.
“Nah. Currently unavailable on SuperSport. “It’s a long story, but we lost the SS partnership, which led to us losing sponsorship from a betting firm because those guys want to be on TV,” Nyovest said.
During the buildup to the fight, Mufasa said he would retire from boxing if he lost to his newest opponent, Priddy Ugly.
Against October 1st, just two weeks from now, I’ll be taking on Priddy Ugly at Sun Arena. If I have to lose, I’m done with boxing for good. If I come out on top, I want to square off against Big Zulu. The only person willing to take on Zulu is myself. However, the star tweeted, “But first, Priddy Ugly on October 1 at Sun Arena.
Despite Mufasa’s insistence on a rematch after losing against musician and actor Anga “Naak Musiq” Makubalo at Sun City in April, the former “Isidingo” star declined.
SuperSport, found on DStv Channel 209, aired the show live.
In December 2021, Mufasa competed in his first celebrity boxing battle, claiming victory over the divisive YouTuber Slik Talk.
The weekend of September 30–October 2 will be filled with great events and musical performances, highlighted by the Celeb City Boxing exhibition fight.
Mufasa has announced to his 4 million Twitter followers that on Wednesday he will release the track “Pardon My Arrogance.” A portion of the caption said, “Cassper Nyovest didn’t have to go so hard!!!!”
