Cassper Nyovest FNB concert didn’t fill up FNB stadium, but it was still a success History was made that day.
A few months ago, the rapper had neither sponsorship nor funding for the event FNB concert, and it almost seemed as if it would never happen.
Cassper Nyovest followed up #FillUpOrlandoStadium with a brave attempt to Fill Up FNB Stadium.
Cassper Nyovest planned to triple the audience members from his first ‘fill up concert’ by filling up Africa’s largest stadium in FNB concert and he did just that.
Going by the visuals gathered from the event, Cassper FNB concert seems to have been a total success managing to sell about 68 000 tickets with a FNB stadium to capacity target of 75 000.
The hitmaker announced two years ago that he would be attempting to fill up the Ticket Pro Dome in Johannesburg FNB concert but of course, few took him seriously.
The “Doc Shebeleza” rapper proved everyone wrong and went on to pull a crowd of 20, 000 – making history as the first South African hip-hop artiste to sell out a venue of that capacity without the help of an international act.
Shortly after that, he announced that he would take his cause a step further by attempting to fill up Orlando Stadium which has approximately 40, 000 seats – which is twice the amount the Dome sits.
Cassper achieved this dream in 2016, filling the Orlando Stadium, although unlike his first mega concert, the tickets were not sold out, although they did get close.
