It’s a been a hard and crazy year for everyone, even our fave celebs.
Ahead of the release of his new single, Bonginkosi featuring kwaito star Zola 7, rapper Cassper Nyovest, asked his fans to share their stories of gratitude with #BongiNkosi, which means “thank God,” to remind us that while it’s been a seriously awful year, there are still things we can be grateful for and happy about.
And what’s Cassper happy about? The arrival of his son, due to be born “any minute now,” he tweeted. “I'm going to be a father Any Minute Now so I decided 2 name my album #AMN (Any Minute Now). The album cover is an actual scan of my son in his beautiful mother's womb. Excited about dis album but I'm more excited bout being a dad 2 a beautiful baby boy. #AMN drops September 11th.”
His timeline was soon flooded with many heart-warming stories from fans.
