Cassper Nyovest Breaks Down In Tears During DJ Sumbody’s Memorial Service.

At a memorial service this morning, friends, relatives, and coworkers of the late amapiano pioneer and entrepreneur Oupa John Sefoka, also known as DJ Sumbody, gathered to honor him.

While en route to a gig, the 38-year-old DJ was killed early on Sunday, November 20, in Woodmead. It will take time for those who knew him to come to terms with the loss of him after his untimely death, which has shocked the nation.

As multiple speakers recalled him and paid tribute to him, sadness could be felt through the little displays. Cassper Nyovest, a close friend of his, had to hold back tears as he paid tribute to him.

Cassper recalled the first time he met DJ Sumbody “Me and DJ Sumbody met a long time ago. I don’t know who he took my number from. However, when he was on the radio he would call me every week to give me an interview without telling me anything before. I would answer thinking it was just a call, and he would be like “you are live on air, you see we are supporting you” and that is how our relationship started. How we became close friends with him is a funny story,” he said.

He continued “One day he pulled me at a party where they had booked me at Ayepyep and said you are my boy and I understand you. I want to tell you something, they are jealous of you.”

Cassper also discussed how DJ Sumbody’s release of the popular song Monate mpolaye, which featured him, altered his life.

“He was not scared to tell what everyone was scared to say and from there we became very close mutual friends. We went on to release the song Monate Mpolaya and I didn’t like it but he would take no for an answer and when the song was released it changed everyone’s career not only theirs but even mine.

It became one of my biggest songs to perform on stage and when I performed it at Global Citizen and everyone loved it he said there was not only hying that was missing,” said Cassper.

He claimed that the reason he skipped the performance was so that Beyonce could see him. Thanking him for all of his lessons.

“I am grateful to have had a friend like this. It is such a difficult time for all of us because he was a person who would always make plans whether it was business or personal,” said Cassper as he fought back his tears.

Cassper you could say something bad to the DJ, but he would never take offense. “You could be brutally honest with him and he would not take offense. No matter how much youf**k with him he would love you. I am going to miss you and I love you,” he said.
