Cassper Nyovest books out the whole cinema for 200 kids. Rapper Cassper Nyovest took to Instagram on Friday to show a large group of smiling learners, for whom he said he had rented out an entire cinema so they could watch the film Matwetwe.
The rapper took to Instagram, posting a video showing smiling, appreciative schoolchildren at a screening of the film. “Booked out a whole Cinema on Friday for the Kids in my hood to watch Matwetwe. Little good deeds go a long way and the smiles on their faces mean the world to me. Shout out to my dad for helping me organise this [and to] Bridge Entertainment for putting it together,” Nyovest said.
Matwetwe, directed by Kagiso Lediga and produced by DJ Black Coffee, was met with rave reviews and great box office sales upon its opening. Tragedy struck, however, when one of the film’s stars, Sibusiso Khwinana, was killed outside a cinema where he was promoting the film.
Khwinana was stabbed to death, reportedly over a cellphone, at Sterland Mall in Pretoria, Gauteng police said on Saturday. Khwinana had played Lefa in Lediga’s hit film. He was 25. Khwinana was attending a screening of the film on Friday night.
Black Coffee tweeted his horror, asking for something to be done about crime in South Africa.
“Police have opened a case of murder and robbery after a 25-year-old man was stabbed and killed in Pretoria on Friday, 01 March 2019 at approximately 11 pm,” police spokesperson Captain Mavela Masondo said following the murder.
“It is alleged that the deceased and his friend were at the corner Pretorius and Steve Biko Streets when the deceased was accosted by a suspect who demanded his cellphone. As they were wrestling for the cellphone, the deceased was allegedly stabbed with a sharp object on the upper body. He was certified dead on the scene,” said Masondo.
Matwetwe, which means Wizard, is a rite of passage film following the trials and tribulations of Lefa and Papi, who are best friends and recent high school graduates, who create a potent strain of cannabis they name “matwetwe”.
Film critic Alex Isaacs said of the movie: “I think that Matwetwe is some of the best work our industry has to offer, not because it is perfect, but because it shows the intricacies of local life in a way that is relatable to a broad audience beyond our borders.”
