Cassper Nyovest – the biggest winner at the 14th Metro FM awards, which was held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Conference Centre (ICC), in Durban – was full of praise of the almighty God last night.


Born Refiloe Maele Phoolo, 24, the hip hop star repeatedly quoted his favourite bible punch line (with the help of screaming fans) – ‘God is good, all the time; and all the time, God is good’ – five times during his collection of 5 Metro FM silver trophies.

In total, Cassper’s debut album – Tsholofelo – has accumulated 15 awards and has since went gold.

Although the awards, temporarily renamed ‘Cassper Nyovest FM awards’ on social networking sites, was dominated by the Doc Shebeleza hit maker, other artists also celebrated their victory.
