Not only was Mufasa up against some serious competition, but he also needed the support of his fan base to clinch a win.

Cassper overcame tough competition, which featured the likes of his rival AKA, K.O, Emtee, Kwesta and A-Reece.

At one point during voting, it seemed as though Slimes A-Reece's fans had secured A-Reece the win, as he was leading strongly.

As with any competition, however, anything can happen, and Cassper ended up taking the lead and bringing the award home.

An excited Cassper reacted to the news and tweeted that he had won the prestigious award.

Cassper also had a message for his naysayers, who always have something to say.

"Y'all know I deserved that award. If you don't agree, you don't know nothing about SA Hip Hop in the past decade. The most important force in years," tweeted the rapper.

Cassper may have not been in the limelight for a decade, but he has certainly had a huge impact on the SA Hip Hop streets.

The multi-award-winning artist, when he entered the hip hop game, made everyone stand up.

Who can forget that ponytail and Doc Shebeleza blasting from every corner.

Concerts were always a thing in Mzansi, but Mufasa changed the game with his iconic “Fill Up” concerts.

He was the first South African rapper to sell out tickets at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, for his Fill Up The Dome concert in 2015.

He went on to "fill up" stadiums around the country, such as the Orlando Stadium, FNB Stadium, Moses Mabhida Stadium and Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Cassper has six albums under his belt and is constantly working on new music, be it on his own or with other artists.
