#FreshFromTheGrill: @YoungstaCPT releases Cape of Good Hope music video
Do you remember the science fiction flick 2012 starring John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton and Danny Glover? The plot is about a man seeking a safe haven for his kindred when the earth is facing a potent calamity which wipes almost the entire population, the only blessed place is The Cape of Good Hope. Bear in mind that motion picture was released in 2009, now fast forward a decade later to a time where the Lyricist of the Year in 2017 by the name of Youngsta CPT drops visuals to his latest single Cape of Good Hope taken from his thought-provoking album 3T.
One thing you can’t deny Youngsta CPT is his quest to fully represent the Cape Coast and his fellow Coloured people. The music video narrates the beauty that is Cape Town with many tourist attraction sites enticing the eyes although the lyrics reflect a rather grisly reality about the city “Welcome to the Cape of Good Hope call it Skolliewood/Riyadh Roberts robbing from the rich call him Robin Hood/Colonialism shook us, we got off to a rocky start/Now we building empires and calling it Grassy Park/I’ve never seen democracy, Skaap Kraal to Ottery/Salute to Marc Lottering but this isn’t a comedy.” The place serves as an inspiration for heartfelt poems. Dale Fortune did an impeccable job as a Director and Camera operator capturing great moments. This is a fresh video.
