Wednesday 22 December is finally here, which means South African rapper Cassper Nyovest and controversial YouTuber Slik Talk are gearing up to face off in the boxing ring tonight.

The long-awaited and much hyped celebrity boxing match, dubbed “Fame vs Clout” will take place tonight at 21:00 on Cassper’s YouTube channel.

In a new YouTube video, Slik Talk has revealed why he is so eager to get into the ring with the Baby Girl hitmaker, sharing that he was cut off by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) at the start of this year.

NSFAS announced in April this year that they will no longer be providing funding for university students in postgraduate courses. The decision included postgraduate certificates, postgraduate diplomas, honours, masters and PhD degrees. 

They also announced that they will not be funding students who were studying towards their Bachelor of Laws (LLB) qualification at the University of Witwatersrand (Wits).

YouTuber Slik Talk revealed that was affected by these decisions. 


Speaking about his boxing match against Cassper Nyovest, Slik Talk said he was not leaving the boxing ring without R100 000. Slik Talk revealed that he was “R42 000 deep” and needs the money to pay off his student debt. 

“I need this money more than anything. I would rather leave that ring in a stretcher, but I’m not leaving that ring without that money.”

“That money means everything to me and I’m leaving with it.”

“I’m putting my future in my own hands. I’m getting in that ring, I’m leaving with that money and I’m paying my fees.”

Reacting to Slik Talk’s new video on Twitter, some expressed that they hope Slik Talk wins the fight, but others were doubtful about his remarks. 

One tweep said: “He knows Cassper likes a charity case and maybe this is to go easy on him but I need Cass to yeet the sh*t out of him.”

“Not the villain being sympathetic and having a tragic back story.”

“Yea shame he won me over with this won’t lie. Hope he gets it.”
