This collaborations comes with AG Mobile, which has signed a deal with the South African hip hop star to release his own branded Cassper Nyovest phone. This is the first time that AG Mobile has teamed up with a star to create and design a smartphone and the results are pretty cool. The phone has specific features and design elements the hip hop artist included, making it feel like the phone has gotten the Cassper Nyovest stamp of approval.

The phone is called AG#Hashtag and comes in a red, vibrant colour which is the hip hop artist’s favourite colour.

Based on the phone’s name, it’s safe to assume that the South African music artist is a lover of social media. It comes as no surprise that Cassper Nyovest took to Instagram to announce this cool collaboration with AG Mobile and the artist shared shots of the phone which will be exclusively available through MTN:

#Hashtag #ItsHere #CassperPhone #AGmobile #YouNeedANewPhone #ProudlySouthAfrican
