Claiming via the MacG Podcast that he made the decision to include Cassper Nyovest and no one disputed that as he produced and arranged the song.
“The reason why he was on that song it’s because of me. Nobody else involved in that song wanted him, except me and it was my decision to make. I knew that having him on that song would connect the Nguni speaking parts of this country with the Pedi, Tswana, and Sotho speaking parts of this country… That would make it like a super smash hit,” claimed Nota Baloyi.
Nota Baloyi also said that rapper Boity Thulo is even going to do better than her ex-boyfriend Cassper Nyovest in the rap game.
“It’s gonna be funny… It’s gonna be sad because Cass is gonna watch his ex becomes a better rapper than him.”
However, in an interview with OkayAfrica (2017) Kwesta Dakar, he says he visited Cassper’s studio and they started to play each other what they were currently cooking, claiming that Cassper went crazy when he heard Ngud’ jumping all over the room.
“How Cassper got on the joint… he’d hit me up to do something else with him. I went to his studio and worked on his verse, finished that. He started playing me some of the songs he had for his album. I’m like, dope, dope. And naturally, I also started playing him some of the things I had, and when he heard Ngud he went crazy.
“He was jumping, he was like a little kid, he was jumping up the room all over the place. “Yo I think you got the sum of this, that, and the third, you know,” and I literally said, “Dude, if you like the song so much, why don’t you drop a verse on it then?” Because it had two verses, just my first and second verse. He literally was like, “Yo dude I ain’t trying to mess with your vibe.” But I’m like, “Hey dude, just mess with the joint… jump on.” – OkayAfrica.
