South African rapper, Cassper Nyovest has responded to claims that he is homophobic and that he made a derogatory remark to a member of the LGBTIQ community who asked to take a picture with him.
A Twitter user known as Mattyyonce tweeted that she was denied pictures with Cassper simply because of her sexual orientation.
”So I met @CassperNyovest the other day and after our encounter he said “no homo”. This is the guy who performed at gay pride. A hyper masculine statement to reaffirm his hetero status. After that he’s goons giggled- very humiliating.”
This led to the rapper receiving a huge backlash on social media for being homophobic. However, the TitoMboweni hit maker has denied the allegations via a video he shared on Twitter. In the video, he denied being homophobic and spoke of how he once performed at a gay pride for free.
He tweeted: ”I performed at Gay pride for free.”
