‘Ice’ is a very important part of a rapper’s aesthetic and branding, rappers are known to splash ridiculous amounts on diamond, gold and even platinum pieces be it watches or neckpieces they even sing about their love of ice in their songs, Durban rapper Lucasraps even has a sog titled ‘Johnny Dang.’ Everything about Cassper Nyovest is big as the state of Texas, his boasting on the mic, his shows, his businesses so it’s no surprise he has a jewelry collection that can rival a lot of people’s car collections.
Last year Cassper tweeted about his newly acquired jewelry piece for his birthday “New chain alert. Early birthday Gift. Dropped 70 000 pounds not Rands. It’s been a good year!!! Don Billiato!!!,” he tweeted.
Around the same time, Tibip spoiled his baby mama on her birthday with an Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 Rolex Watch, with a bright blue diamond set and a jubilee bracelet costing R164,900.
“It’s Baby Mom’s birthday, so I bought her her first Rolex. Here’s a video of me surprising her. Shout out to @the_watch_channelsa for helping me find the perfect piece. A 31mm date just with a factory diamond dial. Happy birthday Mama ka Boy @bexxdoesitbetter . Love you forever! You are a real one!,” tweeted Cassper.
Now Abuti Fillup after filling up Mmabatho stadium in his hometown of Mafikeng has decided to also fill up his jewelry set with a new piece.
The piece inspired by his Alcohol beverage brand Don Billiato is a diamond-encrusted ‘B’ but Nyovest has not revealed how much it cost him, but we can guess he indeed broke the bank to get that one custom made. Let’s see of this one can give his spinning family tree pendant a run for its money in popularity amongst fans.
