The beef between Cassper Nyovest and Prince Kaybee is not dying down anytime soon. The two just do not get a long and Prince Kaybee seems to be enjoying the drama.
With everyone taking aim at Cassper’s sneakers saying they are a replica of previously released sneakers, Prince Kaybee came to his defense – whilst adding a fist full of shade because why not?
Cassper Nyovest has collaborated with Drip Sneakers for his very own #RF990 sneakers which are inspired by his birth year. He and Drip Footwear CEO and Founder, Lekau, signed a R100 million deal. A few weeks ago when he launched them he started off with the colour pink and then teased a few other colours.

Although some like the sneakers, many are just dissatisfied. The fact that they look like previously released sneakers and also retail at a higher price than the others, angers social media users.

“Cassper is killing that Drip brand. He hijacked a well established brand and made it about him, while his sneaker quality is an insult to the consumer. We must stop sugar coating, black business must sell quality and not blackmail us with “black owned” term,” said a tweep.
Prince Kaybee came to his defense saying starting a whole different shoe from scratch is costly so Cassper does not have enough funds to start one. He also threw shade at him and called him Sasko Sam, from the bread logo.
Prince Kaybee gave Cassper a new name "Sasko Sam"?????

“Just want to defend Sasko Sam here for once, starting and designing your own shoe from scratch is Expensive, he doesn’t have the money to do that so best bet is get a Chinese existing design, put a tree and sell to Dome Fill Ups, commercial business principal,” he mocked.
