Former South African president Nelson Mandela once said that, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

But rapper Cassper Nyovest begs to differ. The high school drop-out took to social media to gloat about not completing his Grade 12.
“If I listened to people I would be stuck at home with a job I hate cause that’s what they told me when I was young. They told me I should go to school cause I wouldn’t make it. Go to school, get a job, they said. You know what I said? Watch me do it! By God’s grace, we here!”

Cassper went on to say, “Don’t ever listen to people. People will advise you and then turn on you when their advice fails. People will crush your ideas and then applaud you and claim to have believed in you from the start. People will laugh at you for trying and failing, then copy your idea when it works.”
