Frontman Jared Leto may not have been quite as active as fellow singer John Legend, but he still managed to snap a couple of pics – and post a video - to Instagram, chronicling his time in the Mother City.

R&B singer John Legend was a hit in Cape Town with three sold-out shows and it looks like the Mother City left its mark on him as well.
The legendary crooner and his wife – model Chrissy Teigen – were posting up on storm on Instagram as they captured their travels in the city this week, from yacht trips and show-time selfies, to more intimate moments on tour.
John, you legend, thanks for coming, and hopefully we see you again soon!

Over the past 10 years, the creative scene has crept eastwards, from the heart of Long Street towards the East City district into Woodstock. Young artists and collectives are taking root in the city’s more industrial areas and breathing new life into them.
