Cassper Nyovest is a dad!
The superstar rapper and his partner Thobeka Majozi welcomed son, Khotso, into the world on Sunday.
And as Cass is known as Mufasa, he hailed the arrival of his Simba.
Taking to Twitter shortly before Khotso was born, the excited dad shared a photo of himself donning scrubs alongside the doctor, captioning the post: “Let’s f****ing gooooo! #AnyMinuteNow.”
Moments later, Cassper, 29, who dropped his long-awaited album #AMN on Friday, shared the exciting news of his son’s arrival, also revealing the baby’s name.
He wrote: ”This album means sooo much more and it makes sooo much sense now that my son, Khotso is here. #AnyMinuteNow.”

After the news broke, fans and celebrity friends including musician King Monada and TV host Minnie Dlamini-Jones took to social media to congratulate the couple.
Minnie tweeted: “Congratulations guys. I can’t wait for mine now. Sending all the blessings and good spirits your way. Love to my baby girl.”

Last month Cass and Thobeka, 27, hosted a larney baby shower with a Simba-themed party for their guests at Nto’s Boutique Hotel in La Lucia.
The extravagant affair had social media buzzing with mense wondering how they managed to pull off such a kwaai event during lockdown.
In June, Cassper confirmed that he was going to be a father for the first time.
Taking to social media a day after Father’s Day, the then dad-to-be said: “I’m going to be a father any minute now.”

Sharing an image of the baby scan, Mufasa revealed that he would be dropping his latest album, and would be a father too.
The star said the album was inspired by his son.
“The album cover is an actual scan of my son in his beautiful mother’s womb. (I’m) excited about this album but I’m more excited bout being a dad to a beautiful baby boy. #AMN drops September 11th,” he said at the time.(sic)”
