The Mahikeng-born rapper is one of the richest music artists in South Africa. Throughout his career, he has released many chart-topping singles as well as commercially successful albums. Having acquired such substantial wealth, it’s no surprise that Cassper Nyovest’s net worth has afforded him a luxurious lifestyle as he owns an opulent mansion and expensive car collection.
Cassper Nyovest’s Net Worth Sources
Sitting on a net worth of $8 million is not what Cassper Nyovest achieved in a few years. It took him several years of hard work and dedication to his craft to be able to establish himself as a music icon and a savvy businessman. Beginning his business career with the launch of a record label in 2014, Refiloe Phoolo moved on to spread his tentacles into the fashion and liquor industries.
Not only does he serve as the founder and owner of a best-selling liquor brand in South Africa, Billiato, but co-owns a sneakers brand called Root of Fame. It’s worth noting that multiple remunerative endorsement deals worth millions of rands also contribute to Cassper Nyovest’s net worth. That said, here’s a detailed look at how the accomplished artist cum record producer has accrued his staggering wealth.
As one of the top five richest rappers in South Africa, Cassper Nyovest has left an indelible mark on the music scene. He works as a rapper, songwriter, and record producer. For over a decade, he has been active in the music industry and has released smash songs and albums which have become trendy online, accumulating millions of streams on diverse digital streaming platforms. Now, let’s have a sneak peek at Refiloe’s illustrious musical career journey.
Mufasa Started Making Music at the Age of 12
Cassper Nyovest was born in 1990 and attended Sol Plaatjie Secondary School. In 2002, when he was 12 years old, he began rapping music. Two years later, while still 13, he created a hip-hop group called Childhood Gangsta with his friends. Soon after, the Mahikeng native left the group to join Slow Motion which had eight members that included record producer Aashish Gangaram.
After failing his Grade 10 exams in 2006, Nyovest relocated to his grandmother’s house situated in Potchefstroom in North West Province. Later in 2007, at the age of 16, Refiloe Phoolo dropped out of school to focus on his music career as a rapper. He subsequently moved to Johannesburg, where he signed a music deal with the record label Impact Sounds.
Due to creative differences, the relationship between the rapper and the record label went south. As a result, he left Impact Sounds and moved back home, where he continued his music career.
Cassper’s First Two Studio Albums were Platinum Certified
Cassper Nyovest started gaining media attention after he was featured by late rapper, Pantsula on his song, ‘Wamo Tseba Mtho’. The late hip-hop artist discovered Mufasa while he was performing in a show. Later in 2013, Nyovest dropped his debut single titled, ‘Gusheshe’ featuring Okmalumkoolkat.
Soon after, the hip-hop song gained airplay on several radio stations such as 5FM and YFM. In the next year, he released his second single, ‘Doc Shebeleza,’ and it received positive reviews. The song peaked at No. 4 on the EMA chart and No. 1 on 5FM Top 40 Chart. In that same 2014, the influential rapper released his debut studio album, ‘Tsholofelo’, under his record label, Family Tree Records, as well as Universal Music South Africa and Kalawa Jazmee Records.
The album was a critical and commercial success, establishing Cassper Nyovest as a force to reckon with in the music industry. Released on July 18th, 2014, ‘Tsholofelo’ peaked on iTunes SA Album Chart for two successive months (July and August). Also, the album was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry of South Africa in April 2015 after recording sales of over 40,000 copies. Currently, it has sold over 80,000 copies and is certified 2x Platinum.
Following the success of the album, Cassper Nyovest was rated No. 1 on the MTV Base show, The Hottest MC in Africa, in October 2014. Then in August 2015, the acclaimed artist dropped the lead single, ‘Mama I Made It,’ from his second studio album, ‘Refiloe’. He eventually released the self-titled album in October 2015.
Amazingly, the album was certified Gold by RiSA on the day of its release as the ticket buyers of his show, Fill Up The Dome, received a complimentary copy of it. Subsequently, ‘Refiloe’ attained Platinum certification from the Recording Industry of South Africa after selling over 40,000 copies domestically.
He Encountered More Success With His Subsequent Album Release
Before trying out the popular amapiano genre making waves in South Africa and beyond, Cassper Nyovest’s net worth was augmented with the earnings from the sales of his third studio album, ‘Thuto’. Released on May 5th, 2017, the album sold over 20,000 copies on the day of its release and was certified Gold. It was eventually certified Platinum in the subsequent weeks after registering sales of more than 40,000 copies.
Later on November 30th, 2018, Mufasa moved on to drop his fourth studio album, ‘Sweet and Short’ and the album sold more than 40,000 copies on its day of release, gaining a Platinum certification from RiSA. Furthermore, while anticipating the birth of his son, Khotso Izwe Simba Phoolo in September 2020, Cassper Nyovest dropped his fifth album titled, ‘Any Minute Now’.
Just like his previous albums, ‘Any Minute Now’ was an instant hit. Not only did the album emerge as the best-selling album in South Africa across all genres a few weeks after its release, one of its singles titled, ‘Good For That’ was certified platinum. Also, another single from the highly anticipated album titled, ‘Amademoni’ gained a Gold certification from RiSA.
Cassper Nyovest then ventured into the amapiano genre with a mix of hip-hop and kwaito after pioneering hip-hop in South Africa for several years. He dropped his first amapiano album, ‘Sweet and Short 2.0’ on July 30th, 2021. It featured many amapiano artists such as Boohle, Reece Madlisa, Lady Du, Abidoza, Zuma, and DJ Sumbody. One of the singles from the album, ‘Siyathanda’ peaked at No. 1 on the African Music Chart.
How Cassper Nyovest’s Net Worth Increased With Fill Up Concert Earnings
With the notion that South African artists cannot fill up stadiums without international acts, Cassper Nyovest challenged himself with the Fill Up project. In partnership with Cîroc Vodka, Cass kicked off the Fill Up The Dome Concert in October 2015. He planned on filling up Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, which can accommodate up to 20,000 people.
He promoted the concert with the lead single from his second album, ‘Mama I Made It’. With six days left to host the event, the ‘Thuto’ crooner announced on Twitter that he had sold out tickets for the concert. The show was successful and allegedly made over R20 million in gross revenue. Consequently, the celebrated rapper was inspired to start hosting a Fill Up concert annually.
In October 2016, he held the second Fill Up concert titled, Fill Up Orlando Stadium and the venue has a seating capacity of 40,000. With sponsorships from government agencies and many notable brands, Cassper pulled off the show and had a total of 40,000 people in attendance. In the next year, he challenged himself to fill up the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg with a seating capacity of 94,736.
Although he planned to fill out 75,000 of its seating capacity, he failed to sell out all the tickets. Nevertheless, the show was a success. Initially, the music star had struggles with funding the event as he lacked sponsorship. He eventually got three major sponsors―SABC1, Cîroc SA, and Budweiser.
Fill Up Moses Mabhida Stadium was an Exception
Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up event for the year 2018 was held at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. Even though he managed to sell 68,000 tickets for the show, the concert flopped and left him in debt of R7 million. He apparently achieved a historic feat by filling up one of SA’s biggest stadiums but lost millions due to broken promises from potential sponsors who pledged to finance the concert but didn’t keep their promises.
Despite the setback, the rapper didn’t refrain from holding Fill Up concerts in subsequent years. He hosted the fifth event at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg, North West, and it was successful. Due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, he didn’t hold the event in 2020 and 2021.
Later on December 3rd, 2022, Cassper Nyovest filled up Mmabatho Stadium in North West, and the event was a success, though costing about R16 million. The concert was held in his hometown, and the venue was a few walks away from his grandmother’s house, where he grew up. The Fill Up concert boosted the economy of the North West province, and the artist was urged to come back for another show.
The Rapper Has Held Several Sold Out Shows While on Tour
Mufasa is undoubtedly one of the most influential South African music artists. He has not only filled up some of the largest stadiums in the country but has had multiple sold-out shows. In March 2015, when the platinum-selling artist had his Malawi Tour, his concert at both Lilongwe and Blantyre were sold out.
This shit was legendary. We toured the whole country with a stage that costed 600k a night. That's what they spend at festivals. We did a self funded countrywide tour in 2016 with our own stage, sound engineers, light technicians, band, dancers & artists. Nota single fuck given!! https://t.co/U6CkyIsmeg
— Don Billiato (@casspernyovest) May 4, 2020
Also, in the following year, he sold out shows during Refiloe Tour. In promotion of his then-newly-released album, Nyovest had 24 shows across South Africa during the tour. It was a phenomenal experience for him and his fans as well. With his combination of open-hearted rhymes and glorious trap braggadocio, the Mahikeng-born was able to gather fans from across the nation, resulting in sold-out shows.
Even though he claimed that Refiloe Tour was self-funded and he spent R600,000 per night on the stage he toured the country with, the countrywide tour’s legendary production ensured that Cassper Nyovest’s net worth got jacked up. Furthermore, the iconic rapper embarked on an amapiano tour in August 2021, a month after the release of his first amapiano album, ‘Sweet and Short 2.0’.
Exporting the amapiano sound beyond Mzansi, he had performances in Ghana, Dubai, and the United Kingdom. While he spent 10 days in Ghana, he had two shows in the UK and then finalized the short tour with a show in Dubai. Later in March 2022, he organized Billiato Lifestyle Tour.
How Much Does it Cost to Feature Cassper Nyovest?
In 2016, it was reported that Cassper Nyovest charged R100,000 for a verse on a track. Over the years, he has been featured in numerous songs by other artists. No wonder Cassper Nyovest’s net worth is estimated at $8 million. Also, having established himself as a top artist in SA, Mufasa ranks atop the list of South African musicians with the highest booking fee.
He reportedly charges R207,000 for a 30-minute performance. This was revealed by a YouTuber named Oabile, who sent emails to some of the booking managers of top hip-hop artists in the country. The booking cost also included riders and travel costs. While Cassper is rated as the artist with the highest booking fee, his long-time rival, AKA, comes second with a booking fee of R150,000.
If Cass’ booking fee is something to go by, then he must have pocketed multi-million rands from his diverse performances across South Africa. Little wonder, he bragged about making R2 million in one night from his many performances. Throughout his booming career, the hip-hop star has headlined several shows, including the AMA Fest held on September 3rd, 2022, in the United Kingdom.
He performed alongside many other artists, such as Uncle Waffles, Musa Keys, Uncle Vinny, Boohle, DJ Tira, DJ Stokie, and Sho Madjozi.

As such, the recording artist was part of the collaboration campaign between Cîroc and Moschino.

More so, Cîroc was among the sponsors of the musician’s Fill Up projects.

In recent years, Cassper Nyovest has made it known his desire to become the first billionaire rapper in South Africa. As a result, he has been strategizing on how to get his goals achieved not only through music but by diversifying into other businesses and exploring other industries such as fashion, entertainment, and liquor industries.
Family Tree Records
Soon after leaving Impact Sounds Record, Cassper Nyovest began building a music empire with the establishment of a record label called Family Tree Records in the year 2014. He serves as the chief executive officer of the company and partnered with Universal Music Group South Africa as the digital distributor.
Since its launch, Cassper’s record label has signed many artists that eventually became big names in the music industry. They include Nadia Nakai, Tshego, and Gemini Major. Whilst Nadia, Tshego, and Gemini joined Family Tree in 2016, they eventually left the record label in 2021, 2018, and 2020 respectively.
Over the years, Family Tree Records has become well-known for producing some of the hit songs trending in South Africa and overseas. They include ‘Siyanthandana’, ‘Good for That’ ‘Mama I Made It’, ‘Money Calling’, ‘Naa Meean’, Sqwaa’, and ‘Money Back’. Additionally, Cassper’s record label served as the producer of his six studio albums, including his platinum-selling albums, namely:
- Tsholofelo (2014)
- Refiloe (2015)
- Thuto (2017)
- Sweet and Short (2018)
- Any Minute Now (2020)
- Sweet and Short 2.0 (2021)
Family Tree further produced some of Nadia Nakai‘s highly successful albums such as:
- Bragga (2016)
- Nadia Naked (2019)
- Nadia Naked II (2020)
The Root of Fame Sneakers
In June 2021, Cassper Nyovest’s master plan to attain billionaire status hit a milestone when he entered into a partnership with Drip Footwear to design his own sneakers brand called Root of Fame. He signed the deal, which is referred to as the Legacy Deal with Drip owner Lekau Sehoana, at The Leonardo in Sandton, Johannesburg. The partnership deal is reportedly worth R100 million.
Prior to announcing the Legacy Deal on social media, the ‘Doc Shebeleza’ crooner was rumored to have been a brand ambassador of Drip Footwear as he was constantly seen rocking the brand’s sneakers. He signed the deal under his record label, Family Tree. One month after signing it, Cassper and Lekau unveiled their first sneakers together called The Root of Fame 990 which is sold for R990.
Soon after releasing the sneakers, the two entrepreneurs mounted a 240-meter square banner of the sneakers brand at the tallest African building, The Leonardo. The Legacy Deal is not only meant for the release of the sneakers collection, but the partnership will also involve the launch of other unnamed products. To show support for the hip-hop legend, South African politician Julius Malema offered to gift 50 of his Twitter followers a pair of Root of Fame 990 sneakers in August 2021.
When asked about the name of the label, Root of Fame, Cassper explained that during the lockdown in 2020, while stuck in his house with no fans, he realized for the first time that his fame was useless. And thus, he decided to make a product that would give people the taste of fame. The aim of the deal between Cass and Lekau is to showcase black excellence through the power of collaboration.
ROF Clothing Line
In the year 2017, the accomplished entrepreneur first tried his hands at fashion with the launch of a clothing label called Ska Ba Hemisa Capsule Collection under his company, Family Tree Media. The clothing collection consisted of apparel designed by some of the former artists signed to his record label, including Nadia Nakai. Later in May 2022, Cass teased his fans about releasing the Root of Fame clothing collection.
Six months later, he announced the launch of Root of Fame (ROF) apparel under his partnership with Drip Footwear. The business move was not surprising as his sneakers line has received positive feedback from his social media followers. Amazingly, Mzansi showed one of their favorite artists overwhelming support as the website where the clothing collection was sold got crashed less than one hour after its launch due to traffic.
It was believed that many people visited the site to make a purchase. Despite the rush over the merchandise, which was released in limited quantity, some people bemoaned the price of the clothing collection. On Twitter, some fraction of Nyovest’s fans complained about the price tags of ROF apparel. While the ROF graphic T-shirt was sold for R849.99, a two-piece tracksuit from the clothing label had a price tag of R2,499.99.
In an attempt to convince his fans that the merchandise was worth the price, Mufasa asserted that the clothing collection is of premium quality. The ROF clothing collection, which consists mostly of T-shirts and tracksuits, is being sold via the online store. It can also be purchased at the brand’s physical store located at the Newtown Junction Mall in downtown Johannesburg.
Having vast loyal followers on social media that support his business ventures, ROF sneakers, and ROF clothing line extensively contribute to Cassper Nyovest’s net worth.
With the aim to offer his fans a taste of wealth, Cassper Nyovest launched a premium tequila drink called, Billiato. He embarked on the venture in December 2021, and a few months later, he announced that his liquor brand had emerged as the 8th best-selling liquor in Mzansi. Interestingly, there has been a high demand for Billiato since its release.
Barely one year after its launch, Mufasa announced on Twitter that Billiato was ranked among the top three fastest-selling liquor brands in South Africa. Oftentimes, the liquor drink has run out of stock at its designated retail stores. Since its release, Cassper often promotes Billiato on his social media accounts and has even embarked on a Billiato Lifestyle Tour.
The sales for Billiato keep going crazy. We just Sold Out for the 2nd time this year. We just did a restocking with Pick N Pay, Utla, Spar, Makro and all the other big retailers. Thank you so much for the support.
— Don Billiato (@casspernyovest) May 12, 2022
The price for a 750ml bottle of the premium tequila drink range from R277 to R299. And the price is said to be affordable by many. Cassper Nyovest’s liquor drink is sold at many retail stores across the country as well as online stores. They include:
- Pick n Pay

It’s worth noting that the rapper first ventured into the alcohol industry in March 2020 when he collaborated with Cîroc to launch the Cîroc x Cassper Nyovest FillUp bottle. The alcoholic drink was designed by the musician and only 30 bottles of it were made available. The venture was quite successful as it inspired Cass to go for his own alcohol brand.
Celebrity Boxing Matches
Cassper Nyovest is obviously a man with many hats. In recent years, he has solidified his status in the country as a talented amateur boxer by fixing boxing matches with celebrities. He eventually turned his passion into a profitable venture by partnering with Celeb City to work as the organizers of the boxing matches, which has become one of the most anticipated events in Mzansi.
Thus far in his amateur boxing career, Cassper Nyovest has had three total fights. He won two of the matches and lost one. His first celebrity boxing match took place in December 2021. And he fought against controversial YouTuber, Silk Talk and claimed his first win. Cass gained his next opponent when Anga “Naak Musiq” Makubalo commented on the match and called it ‘a weird fight’.
The musician cum actor moved on to challenge Cassper to a fight and fixed the celebrity boxing match on April 8th, 2022. Due to COVID-19 regulations, tickets that covered only 50 percent of the venue―Sun City Superbowl was initially issued. After President Cyril Ramaphosa relaxed the COVID-19 restrictions a bit, more tickets were issued.
The tickets for the match were sold out in just two hours despite being sold for R9,000. After promising to ‘Naak Out’ Naak Musiq in the first round, surprisingly, the match took a different turn as Cassper Nyovest was defeated by his opponent. The event was broadcast live on SuperSport. Even though Mufasa asked for a rematch, the former Isidingo actor declined.
Later on October 1st, 2022, the record producer had his third fight with music artist, Priddy Ugly, which he won. The match was held at Sun Bet Arena in Sun City, and the price of the tickets for the Vip floor seated section ranged from R990 to R1,200. Although Cassper lost SuperSport sponsorship to live broadcast the event, he later got sponsorship from ESPN Africa which aired the match live on TV.
How Much Did Cassper Make as the Host of The Braai Show?
To the surprise of many South Africans, Cassper Nyovest took up the role of the host of The Braai Show on SABC1, replacing AKA who hosted the show’s first season. Although the ‘Thuto’ singer disclosed that he was paid well for his role on the show, he never revealed how much he pocketed.
While SABC1 was having a legal dispute with AKA over the ownership of The Braai Show, Nyovest debuted as the presenter of the show’s second season titled, The Braai Show with Cassper Nyovest in September 2021. While on the SABC1 popular cooking program, the prominent music artist tried to show his fans a different side to his persona and that he’s quite handy cooking on the coals.
He hosted the show for only one season during which people compared the viewership rating The Braai Show had when hosted by AKA to his own rating. After Kiernan Forbes won the legal battle over ownership rights to The Braai Show, Cass stopped working as the host of the cooking programme. However, he had already shot the whole episodes for season two before then.
Lmao… Don't lie to yourself. I made 8 mill just from shows last year… https://t.co/8QIr8UQQq2

It is located in an upper-class estate in the suburbs of Kyalami, Johannesburg and it’s a beauty to behold. The house is quite big that Mufasa has lost count of the number of bedrooms it has. The mansion is erected on several acres of land. As such, it has a large garden with tall trees and also perfectly manicured green grass.
Cassper’s home additionally has a modern-day architectural look, thanks to its supported square pillars. There are also a number of sculpted lion statues around the house as Refiloe refers to himself as the king of the jungle, Mufasa. Here’s a look at the stunning features of Cassper Nyovest’s Kyalami mansion.
Cass has a gigantic living room that is well furnished with a thick dark grey furry carpet and black L-shaped leather couches with light grey throw pillows. In addition, the room features a low-hanging chandelier, a royal blue ottoman, a large HD TV set, and a long glass table.
