South African rapper Cassper Nyovest is gearing up to drop new music again, and it looks like he’s dropping another amapiano track. He has been featuring on numerous amapiano songs, including “Le Plane E’Landile” by Major League DJz, and it looks like he’s making another amapiano banger following the success of “Ama Number Ayi ’10.”
The new song appears to be using an interpolation of Bob Sincler’s “World Hold On” as a sample. He captioned the post, which was a response to a fan asking about his next album: “I’m on it as we speak, sir. Trust me!!! We coming with the vibes!!!“

A statement signed by the Health Minister, Mr. Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, said the new verification tool, which took effect on Wednesday, April 21, will allow only travelers with certificates bearing Trusted Travel of BIOMARS codes to travel out of Ghana. It said the platform covered all the authorized COVID-19 PCR testing laboratories in the country.
5. Lewandowski plans to play ‘for at least another five years’
Robert Lewandowski remains tied to a contract at Bayern Munich through to the summer of 2023, but the prolific Polish striker has stated a desire to “play for at least another five years.” At 32 years of age, one of the finest finishers in the business shows no sign of slowing down.
He has been nursing a knee injury of late, keeping him out of a Champions League quarter-final defeat to Paris Saint-Germain, but has 42 goals to his name this season and remains a leading contender for the 2021 Ballon d’Or. Quizzed on his plans by the press, Lewandowski has said: “I haven’t really thought about what will happen in three or four years. But I want to play for at least another five years. Maybe longer if I can.”
