Cassper announced his intention to fill up the massive venue after his show at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg late last year. The rapper has spent much of 2018 getting his plan in order and marketing the concert.
As fans eagerly countdown to the highly-anticipated event Cass has been updating his fans on the progress he is making to fill the venue to capacity.
According to Cass, 50% of golden circle tickets sold out last Thursday but the figure jumped by a further 30% and TshisaLIVE understands that the area is now over 80% sold out. It is expected to sell out by today.
The rapper also claimed that the upper tier, upper stands and disabled seating areas had also sold out.
A quick scan on Computicket showed that tickets for these areas were not available, with requests being directed to middle tier, lower tier, general access standing and golden circle tickets.
Computicket claims that the total number of tickets sold for the event was not available to the public but at the discretion of the organisers.
Cassper's manager Lerato 'TLee' Moiloa told TshisaLIVE that his team was not able to provide the latest figures on sales but encouraged fans to watch social media for more announcements. On 2 November, Mr Fill Up himself, Cassper Nyovest, was in Durban and spoke about his upcoming concert taking place at the iconic Moses Mabhida on 1 December. During that week, Nyovest, real name Refiloe Maele Phoolo, had visited local radio stations to talk more about #FillUpMosesMabhida.
During an interview with East Coast Drive's Bongani and Mags, Nyovest revealed that those attending the show can expect a number of Durban-based artists and friends of his like Babes Wodumo to join him on stage.
Apart from marketing his concert, Nyovest also opened up about his feelings about the death of South African artist, HHP.
Nyovest shared that HHP was more than just a friend to him.
“He was more of a big brother. I go through so many emotions through the day, I am still numb. It still feels like a dream because it was so sudden. I have so many questions. You know, I sit in bed thinking maybe if I had called him that day things would be different. Man, I miss HHP,” the multi-award winning artist said.
