US rapper Kanye West surprised fans over the weekend when he interrupted his own show in Edmonton, Canada. Moreover, it turned out Kanye just had to take shots at an unnamed artist for “stealing” the idea for the stage.

Kanye reassured his audience that he’s the artist with the original idea and any other person doing the floating stage is a copycat.

“This (is) the original, accept no imitations! You with the rap god, right now. N****s be copying our sh*t bro. Stealing our shit, stealing our stages. Copying our shit one-to-one.”

Meanwhile, taking to Twitter on Monday, Cassper rubbished the speculations that Kanye was referring to him. Notably, Cassper had his fans in high spirit by elevating his stage above the crowd during his Fill Up The Dome concert.

Thus, SA rapper Cassper Nyovest stood his ground on the fact that he conceived the idea before Kanye. This is irrespective of the fact that he found US reports implicating him in the mess.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Cassper spoke out on the floating stage issue. Back in August after Kanye first debuted the stage, Cassper took to Instagram, pointing out that the US star’s stage was “the very same concept” as his. In addition, he said that it was a “great feeling” to have done it before his idol.

Thus, the rapper said in an Instagram post showing the two stages side-by-side;

“Obviously the world will bug out more (be) cause it’s Kanye but it’s just a great feeling for me to do something before my idol. African child!!! This pic should show you that we are just as great!!! All we need is a platform!! #SameStageAsCassper.”

While Kanye is yet to reveal who copied him, social media detectives are having a field day pointing accusing fingers. Nevertheless, Cassper maintains that the idea was so last year.
