The concert raised close to $128-million. 

Cassper  chose to perform ‘Harambe’ - a song originally done by the late HHP. 

“ Ladies and gentlemen this next song we are going to be doing is a cover. The original was written by a very very great man by the name Jabulani Tsambo. Us, his fans know him as HHP, ” the rapper said. 

“The title of the song is 'Harambe' which means pull together which is what we need the world to do right now,” he added.

The 'Tito Mboweni' hitmaker explained that the message in the song is important and fitting to the current condition the world finds itself in. 

"I had prepared this performance of this classic cause the message in this song is soooo important and fitting.  RIP to Jabba ! Love you forever!!!!" he wrote on Twitter.
