Cassper's dad is retiring from teaching in 17 days, and as a proud son, real name Refiloe Phoolo, Cassper paid a moving tribute to his father.

The Mama I Made It rapper took to social media to honour his dad, calling him "the greatest man" he's ever met in his life.

Cassper reminisced how as a kid he'd ask his dad why he was not as successful as his students who would greet him with enthusiasm in their Range Rovers while they were in their Nissan.

"I didn't understand that some people are meant to make millionaires and not millions and their greatness is in exactly that," wrote the rapper.

"Today I want to say Dad, you may not have been the richest or the strongest man in the world but your overall the greatest Man I've ever met in my Life," he added.

Nyovest further congratulated his dad on a great career spanning over 36 years, wishing him well in his retirement.

In 17 days my dad is retiring from teaching after a 36 year long career. I would always ask him as a kid why he wasn't as successful as his students when they would greet him with so much enthusiasm while they drove in their Range Rovers and we were in his Nissan. I didn't understand that some people are meant to make millionaires and not millions and their greatness is in exactly that. One of his most successful students went on to make history and filled up the dome last year besides many other accolades. Today I want to say Dad, you may not have been the richest or the strongest man in the world but your overall the greatest Man I've ever met in my Life. I admire you and I love you very very much. Congrats on a great career and may the good Lord bless you with a restful retirement. From your Son, Refiloe Maele Phoolo.
