Inside Cassper Nyovest’s Highs & Lows In Preparation For #FillUpOrlandoStadium

The mammoth task of filling up a 40 000 seater arena is a daunting task for any artist, especially if you have to do it alone. Cassper Nyovest is a proven sell-out artist, however it took corporate businesses a while to eventually buy into the brand even with his impressive track record. Thus it was welcomed news – for more than one reason – to learn that MTN finally got on board and will be sponsoring the #FillUpOrlandoStadium concert. With the preparations for the record-breaking undertaking in progress, we check out the highs and lows associated with the concert.

HIGHS

Getting Fit

Cassper Nyovest has always been conscious of his body mass index but hardly did anything about it. The sexy chubby rapper and some of the artists set to perform at the concerts have been getting into shape for the past few weeks now in preparation for the concert. The latest of the workout schedule included a two hour workout of the rapper lifting weights and then some streamed live. Some of the artists who took up the call to loose a few are the Major League Djs and Cassper’s day one homie Carpo.

Family Tree Fridays

As means of conjuring enough material to last his full set (possibly three hours) and still keep his avid fans jumping up and down, Cassper established a campaign dubbed #FamilyTreeFridays. The campaign involves releasing tracks every Friday morning that have seen him collaborate with artist from the Family Tree roster and others. The last track to be released from the series saw Cassper squash any resemblance of bad blood  and collaborate with Cashtime Life’s Dj Vigilante on the track titled Ayeye.

MTN Sponsorship

Following learning of the fact that he needed 25 million to host the concert at Orlando Stadium, the Doc Shebeleza hitmaker sounded the call to corporate businesses to align themselves with the massive undertaking. Having successfully filled up The Dome last year, the record-breaking feet seemed not to be enough to entice big business to support his latest project. His previous concert managed to attract the support of petroleum giant BP and cellphone brand AG mobile to finance his dream. With just a little over two months left before the concert, Nyovest tweeted that MTN has agreed to be part of the event.

Delete Button Debacle
On Thursday afternoon, Cassper tweeted about loosing 4 years worth of material he intended to showcase at the Fill Up Orlando Stadium concert on the 29th of October. This included tracks he had planned to debut on the Family Tree Friday series.

All things considered, the day ended with Cassper finding a silver lining to all the turmoil he went through.
