Addressing mourners at the memorial service, Cassper Nyovest revealed how he ended up on DJ Sumbody’s hit Monate Mpolaye. Nyovest said he was never keen on the song Monate Mpolaye and he only did it because Sefoka asked him, “it became 1 of our biggest hit..he was an old soul. It was like you had a father & friend”
