Flash Back Friday – check out the music videos shot in Cape Town


Music captures the soul, doesn’t it? Here at Cape {town} Etc, we share that notion with popular international and local artists who have chosen the mother city as the location to film their hit music.

Local electronic band GoodLuck and ‘joy purveyor’ De Hofnar don’t disappoint in ‘Back In The Day’. The video serves up both establishment shots and close-up shots of the Cape that evoke nothing but feel-good chills.

Having trouble with BAE? It’s not the end of the road. Hear Nasty C and Rowlene wear it all in “Send Me Away (SMA).” We choose this video for the Table Mountain backdrop and of course – the relationship advice (maybe).

Solange Knowles serves up some serious retro haute couture in ‘Losing’ in the heart of the case. The pattern in the video highlights the ultimate Cape Township experience. Enjoy!

Afrobeats pioneers – twins Peter and Paul – P-Square and hip-hop king Rick Ross make an impressive collaboration with “Beautiful Onyinye”. Discover love, yachts, champagne and talent united in the video. Pure romance!

This flashback dates from 1997, it seems like an eternity ago. Since the video had no physical characteristics of Cape Town, we can confirm that “Got Til It’s Gone” was made right here in the mother city. It was the local fashion, culture and history that touched us and drew us to video.
