Gibson Maganga, 42, a farmer from the otherwise the green-gold city of Nkhotakota has come in the open to claim that South Africa’s bestselling artist Casper Nyovest is his son. Malawi Punch can reveal.
In an exclusive interview with Malawi Punch, Maganga narrated that he met Casper’s Mother in April, 1989 when he worked as a chef at one of the lodges in Ngaka Modiri Molema District, South Africa.
“I remember that time, she came and booked at the Lodge I worked and she was so lonely after suffering a break up. She ordered some food and because waiters had gone, I served her in the room where one thing led to another and we made her son,” explained Maganga.
“Earlier in the morning, she called me and expressed regret over what had happened and told me not discuss with anyone. A few weeks later, she came and told me that she was expecting. Despite the fact that I pledged to help her, the lady never came back until I left South Africa and came back to Malawi where I also married,” he said.
However, Maganga noticed his son when he watched one of his videos.
“I saw him last week at a video show ku boma and I can’t miss my son. He even looks like me. We were never in contact with his Mother but I believe she would have loved to see her son connect with his Father, so I am asking you to send this message to him. I am here dying from poverty when he is very rich. I might not have been there when he grew up, but I planted the seed,” lamented Maganga.
Casper Nyovest, born Refiloe Maele Phoolo on December 16, 1990, is a South African recording artist and record producer. His debut album Tsholofelo was released on 18 July 2014 and made him stand out in South African music industry. He is up to date, one of the richest new age singers in South Africa.
