Cassper Nyovest takes his security seriously following the death of his friend, DJ Sumbody.
The DJ was gunned down in his car last year, and there has been no update about the gruesome incident to date.
Speaking to Zimoja, Cassper says his friend’s death made him realise that he isn’t safe.
“It’s not safe man. I have been ignorant for a very long time and DJ Sumbody’s death woke me and made me realise that we are not safe. His death really f%&ked me up,” he says.
Nyovest lives in luxury; he rides expensive cars and jewelry and he isn’t set to risk his life by being carefree.
“I am always walking around with expensive jewelry I can’t afford to put my life at risk and tempt people,” he says.
“I also need to remember who I am; I am Cassper Nyovest. I am not just some normal guy who can just walk around freely. I would love to live like that, walk round the streets, and not be recognised, but I am not that guy. Someone made me realise that this is not the way to go, and Sumbody’s death made me aware that, I need to be safe and remember who I am. We spend a lot of money on stupid things, so why not invest in security and knowing that wherever I move, I am a bit safer and everything is controlled.”
Cassper Nyovest says he misses his friend as he found it easy to reach out to the deceased for help.
The rapper spoke more in detail about investing in security.
“It comes as part of the booking. Even before I blew up, when I travel to other countries they come with mad bodyguards and safety. They even stand outside your hotel room, it’s the norm and I will be doing the same here at home. People are hungry.”
