Rapper Cassper Nyovest and his personal photographer, Jabu Nkosi, are frantically running around in search of the muso’s prized possession – his camera.
A night out with friends turned sour when Nkosi lost his boss Cassper’s camera in a cab in Cape Town last Sunday.
According to Nyovest, his protege forgot the Canon EOS 6D camera worth over R40 000 in the maxi cab. “It wasn’t an Uber, so we can’t trace it. Eish, we need it back. So, it’s like 40k for a new one,” he said.
Speaking to Sunday World this week, Nkosi said an act of kindness after going out clubbing at Saint in Cape Town backfired on him. “I wasn’t alone at the time, there were a lot of people there. Everyone was leaving the club already.”
“When we got to the hotel, I was helping a girl out of the car because she was intoxicated. She couldn’t even walk, I mean, I had to help her take off her shoes. As soon as I went into the hotel the guy drove away. I couldn’t even run after him or get the car registration.”
Nyovest’s relationship with Nkosi kicked off when he shot an iconic #Fillup FNB Stadium picture in 2017 with over 60 000 people captured in one frame.
On Nkosi’s birthday Cassper lauded him for the work well done.
“The man behind the lens!!! All my pictures and videos are shot by this young man. Such a pleasure to work with …,” Nyovest tweeted.
