Refiloe Phoolo most popularly known as Cassper Nyovest has the mills running. People have been speculating about the state of affairs between him and his obviously estranged sweetheart, Amanda du-Pont, but now, they are talking.
What had people talking was not just rapper Cassper Nyovest’s multiple wins at the Metro FM awards – it was his closing performance which he used to blast Skeem Saam actress, Amanda du-Pont.
During his energetic performance of Phumakim, Cassper changed the lyrics of his hit to:
‘Even Amanda du-Pont wasn’t tailored for me, now I really f*ck with women as famous as me.’
His original lyric said:
‘She ain’t no I’m Amanda du-Pont, She ain’t tailored for me, Cause I only f*ck with women that’s as famous as me.’
But getting on stage, Cassper decided to alter his lines and clear his mind as well as that of his numerous fans. And he succeeded because shortly after uttering the changed lyrics, the social media was abuzz trying to decipher what it meant for the one-time golden couple.
Actress Amanda Du Pont also came out saying that she does not think the rapper wants to be with her, and Nyovest is not putting any concerns to rest. This is happening only three months after they started dating.
The duo made their love public with their spectacular romance at the Channel O Awards last year, they shared a kiss on stage and were seen at several events hand in hand. They even took their union to Instagram, posting couple selfies on a pretty regular basis and mooning over each other at the slightest chance.
Then all of a sudden, it seemed like the love was waxing cold as the lovebirds were no longer spotted out and about as often as usual. The selfies shrunk and diminished like a deflated balloon. Cassper Nyovest was alone at the Metros and it wasn’t long before adoring fans began to wonder what was going on and why they were no longer being wowed.

Meanwhile, Du-Pont kept posting selfies of herself seemingly at home. Then an Instagram user told du-Pont that her ex-beau had taken five awards to which she had replied: ‘We thank God, thanks for letting me know.’ You will agree with me that her answer did not sound like the answer of a loving mate.
Well, they both seem to have passed the point of getting back together as du-Pont was linked to a Free State businessman and is said to have enjoyed a brief dalliance with him. Eventually, it was discovered that she was involved in a secret romance with a mystery man who later turned out to be Shawn Rodrigues. After many months of keeping the identity of her bae a secret, the TV personality finally came out clean about her new love and ever since then, the pair has been flaunting their romance on social media without a care.
Cassper Nyovest also seems to have moved on. He is now crushing on TV presenter, Minnie Dlamini and uploaded an image of her as his #WomanCrushWednesday.
Times reported that Several Instagram users were divided as to why Cassper had put du-Pont on blast. @okuhle_n said: maybe changing the line was just a joke while @esthervix3n said: That was just harsh and embarrassing. He didn’t have to do that. Immaturity at its highest level.

Speaking during a chat with eNCa.com writer, Nonkululeko Ngqola, Cassper explained that his purpose for changing the lyrics was not to hurt Amanda rather, he was simply expressing how he felt at that moment.
His actual reason for dissing her like that remained unknown until he released a song titled, “Super Ex”, few hours after his Lip Sync Battle Africa episode with Boity aired on MTV Base on Thursday night, April 14, 2016. In the song, Cassper Nyovest revealed that Amanda Du-Pont cheated on him.
In the new single, Cassper raps: “…all I have are these memories of how we used to make love and how we used to promise each other we’d never break-up. At least you never cheated like Miss du-Pont.”
