Cape Flats meisies are going bos for YoungstaCPT’s latest track, called For Coloured Girls.
The three-minute-long video was aptly launched on Valentine’s Day and received 20 000 views in just one day, and by Monday it had been watched nearly 120 000 times.
For Coloured Girls, which was produced by J-Beatz, is YoungstaCPT’s eighth single from his debut album 3T and was shot in various locations in Cape Town.
The award-winning rapper names almost every neighbourhood in Kaapstad and his rhymes shows an appreciation for all shapes and sizes of women.
The video features some random female faces, but also some well-known ones, like radio personalities Kia Johnson, Saskia Falken, model Candice Manuel and influencer Nadia Japhta.
Youngsta, whose real name is Riyadh Roberts, recently scooped two awards at the SA Hip Hop Awards - Album of the Year for 3T and Best Video for Young Van Riebeek.
The chorus of For Coloured Girls goes: “This one for my coloured girls, not for any other girls, I think you’re so beautiful, you should be the cover girl. This one for my coloured girls, not for any other girls. I think you’re so beautiful, you should be the cover girl, I’m looking for a brown girl, brown girl.”
Coinciding with the "Month of Love", it’s no surprise that the song is trending on every coloured girl’s playlist right now.
Youngsta, 28, says: “I’m not trying to show people the stereotypical coloured image of us living in poverty and gangsterism, which plagues the community, but it’s our reality.
“Who knows, some glossy GQ-like magazine might just spot one of our coloured girls in my music video and give them a modelling contract.”
Social media influencer, Nadia Japhta, says: “I was excited to be part of the video, I think it was amazing that he paid tribute to different variations of coloured women, different shapes and sizes, just letting us know that we matter in our communities.”
Plus-size model, Candice Manuel, adds: “ It showcased different kinds of coloured women, different hair types and body types, this is different to his usual videos - not the rap style, but focusing more on vocals throughout the song.”
