South African celebrities have come out in support of Cassper Nyovest and his dream to fill up the biggest stadium in Africa, FNB Stadium, come December 2.
If he fills up the stadium, Cassper, whose real name is Refiloe Phoolo, will have staged the biggest local hip-hop concert history.
Taking to Twitter at the weekend, the "Tito Mboweni" hitmaker said he could not do it on his own and called for people to buy tickets to the show.
I can't do #FillUpFnbStadium alone. I need all kinds of Help. I need sponsors, engineers, promo teams,dancers ect. But most importantly we need 75 000 people to buy tickets. That's the simplest but most impactful way you can help us. Just buy a ticket. #JustBuyATiicketBroer— #FillUpFnbStadium (@CassperNyovest) November 11, 2017
Fans, music lovers and celebrities alike responded with messages of support with many putting their money where their mouth is:

And we could not agree more with Vusi Thembekwayo.
#FillUpFnbStadium is more than an event to make history for an artist. It's about making history for our entire race & our generation.— Vusi Thembekwayo (@VusiThembekwayo) November 11, 2017
