South Africa’s Hip Hop artist, Cassper Nyovest, has ditched his ponytail trademark saying it is time for him “to boss up and do the suit more” to show that he is growing up.

Mr Doc Shebeleza debuted his new look on the MTV Africa Music Awards (MTV MAMAs) red carpet on Saturday night at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg.

He was dressed in a slick black and white tuxedo.

“I’m growing up bro, my brand is growing up. I’m a CEO now. It’s time for me to boss up and clean up. I need to do the suit more,” said Cassper Nyovest.

The rapper, who claims to have ancestral roots in Malawi, walked away with the Best Live Act accolade which serves as a nod his #filluporlandostadium concert slated for next weekend.

Wizkid, an artist from Nigeria, scooped three major awards: Artist of the Year, Best Male, Best Collaboration. Click here, for the #2016MAMAs full list.
