Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader, Julius Malema was the talk of the Twitterverse this past weekend after gifting 50 lucky Twitter users a pair of Cassper Nyovest’s new sneakers.
The sneakers retail for R990 each, and would cost R49,500 for 50 pairs.
“In support of a Black Child, Black Enterprise and Black Business – The first 50 people to retweet this tweet, using this hashtag: #RF990 and tag @casspernyovest, will get #RF990 sneakers directly from Don Billiato himself, in a venue to be communicated directly to the winners,” he tweeted.
Cassper launched the Roof Of Fame .990 sneakers with Drip Footwear in July.
Reacting to the news, the Tito Mboweni hitmaker thanked Malema, saying the initiative was a great thing to wake up to. “What a great thing to wake up to. Thank you, CIC. Let’s do it,” he tweeted.
