Speaking about the deal Lekau Sehoana, founder of Drip Footwear said;

“The synergy of two businessman coming from similar backgrounds sparked this alliance. This is a celebration of two brands working to reach international markets and inspiring the young ones in Ivory Park, where I grew up, and Mafikeng, where Cassper is from.

The deal was signed under Cassper’s own company, Family Tree which is not only a recording label but also a clothing brand too.

Posting on his Instagram Cass said, “Today is a big day. Today is a beautiful day. It’s one of those days where your hard work pays off. We made it. We became a boss, you know, in the city of Joburg. When I came here I was sitting at the back of a van. (Chuckle.”

Through the partnership the two brands (Drip and Family Tree) are set to launch a lot of unnamed products and work hand in hand beyond music and footwear.
