#VulaPresident: Cassper Nyovest gives his own view
Many South African celebrities came out in the early hours of today to protest.
The artists have blocked off the N3 Highway near the Spaghetti Junction in Durban, demanding that lockdown regulations around concerts be amended.
Using the hashtag, #VulaPresident, they want at least 70 percent capacity at live gigs.
However, many of the celebrities took to the street and social media to let their voice heard.
One of those is Cassper Nyovest, who took to his Twitter to share a piece on this issue.
According to him, the entertainment industry does not only feed artists as those who work for them such as cleaners, security guards, PR, caterers, among others are really affected.
Cassper said their source of livelihood has been put on hold since their employer is not getting anything yet.
He further stated that they should think about people like that and try to make amends.
Cassper said: “The entertainment industry doesn’t feed artists only. There are cleaners, security guards, caterers, sound technicians, Pr, engineers, tent owners, barricade fence owners, light technicians that have lost their livelihoods since March. Think about them if not us.”

We feel for you but asizi chief. You are on your own on this one. Just like we stand alone as ordinary South Africans when we have problems with the government. I wish you all the best

But how can these guys be crying so much if they can still record and release tracks online. My industry is corporate interior designing. No people in offices means no business and I am employ other professionals. What’s unique abt the entertainment industry? #VulaPresident
