As bad as 2016 was, it was also a year for crazy glo’ ups.
“What is a glo up?”you ask? Well, it is the the aesthetic change that most people undergo due to puberty, weight loss or financial/social upward mobility and it is exactly what Anatii and Cassper Nyovest have done.
Motivated by the major shows they both planned and performed at this year, both rappers hit the gym in order to be fit enough to perform an entire set at the shows they were each headlining.
For Anatii it was the 2016 Artiifact Tour which saw the rapper hit the stage in Johannesburg and Durban alongside his friends Omarion, AKA, Dreamteam and more.
We were at the Joburg show and we must say, it paid off. Anatii managed to hold down the entire set without showing any signs of slowing down, mimicking the crowd’s energy the entire night.
The same can be said for Abuti Fill Up who hit the gym hard in preparation for the concert.
We almost couldn't recognize him without his signature chubb.
In addition to the weight loss, Nyovest also shed his ponytail and we cannot tell you how happy we are about that.
Aiich, Cassper went from 'Phumakim' to 'excuse me my kind sir, won't you kindly remove yourself from my personal space' pic.twitter.com/KDfH6v5g2F— Muchi4TheKids (@Sipho_Says) November 13, 2016
The world might be embracing the‘dad bod’but Cassper and Anatii are leading the charge when it comes to the fall of the sexy chubby n****. I wonder what they’ll call themselves on songs now.
He may not have be sexy (in our eyes), but he was chubby. Emphasis on 'was,' seeing as he's sporting a slimmer figure now.
We love the new look (below his neck). As for the beard, we're not sure about that hey....
At least he said it himself in the caption.
Whatever inspired the weightloss, good on you! Keep it up.
