Boohle, real name Buhle Manyathi, has revealed that she did most of the work on Cassper Nyovest’s single, ‘Siyathandana’.
The song was released in June and has over 7.9-million views on YouTube.
The singer says she wrote almost all the lyrics of the song, and Cassper only wrote his verse.
“He only came with his verse. I wasn’t even there,” she told #PodcastandChillwithMacG.

Cassper took to Twitter to respond.
He said he was disappointed by Boohle’s comments.
“This is so disappointing, and I’ve watched it a few times,” he wrote.
He further explained that he will not be engaging in a debate about the lyrics.
“I won’t even explain anything about how this song was written,” he wrote.
He added that he has no hard feelings for Boohle.
“I got sooo much love for Boohle man. One of the most gentle of souls I’ve met, and we made magic together. May God bless her, may she make many more hits,” he wrote.

MacG just used Boohle to advance his career and killed hers. This is artists need managers. Dumbest thing I’ve seen in ages https://t.co/ZKuGj5gwhT

The video has itself 7.9 million views on YouTube right now , I doubt it would’ve reached those numbers if Boohle released the song alone. While Cassper is not the reason we have Boohle he has still played a role in making her well known now , the numbers speak for themselves https://t.co/UCORCQk1GJ

This was so unnecessary, how do you say Cass verse was unnecessary when is the only verse that you hear people sing everywhere you go… Boohle is great, she kills every feature but let us stop being unnecessary Cass played the part, to even think of Boohle, it was genius.. https://t.co/1vMlNMTWuR
