In attendance were the likes of Kamo Mphela, Candice Modiselle, DJ Sumbody, K.O, Lasizwe and Rich Mnisi. The launch, which was all-white themed, saw celebrities, friends of Cassper's and media dressed to the nines.

"Happy birthday to myself. I didn't grow up with a silver spoon. I build this life from nothing but prayer and hard work. Parents raised me to believe in myself and they made me feel I was chosen. This is for all the kids in the hood who dare to dream!!! The Don Billiato!!!

Internationally acclaimed South African DJ Black Coffee hit the decks to play a set during the launch, too.

"I can't believe i have the international superstar [email protected] playing in my backyard on my birthday. I think the president can close the country cause nna I'm fine. #BilliatoPrivateLaunch

After first teasing the tequila earlier in the year, Cassper and his team made Billiato available in stores across the country on Tuesday.

Ever the opportunist and strategist, Cassper also took the opportunity to release his eagerly anticipated single with British artist Ray, "Summer Love".

Cassper and Raye first teased the song earlier in the year when Cassper was in England to perform at the Kings of Amapiano event.

The song was produced by Cassper's frequent collaborator and live show pianist, Alie Keyz.

In celebration of his hugely successful year, Cassper will be headlining a show, dubbed “Mufasa”, at Soweto's popular live performance venue, Zone 6, tomorrow.
