80s pop icons in Cape Town, the Mother City
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
If you’ve had Just an Illusion stuck in your head all week long and suddenly have a renewed love for all things sparkly, you know that the Virgin Atlantic 80s Rewind Festival has hit Cape Town.
With pop icons Rick Astley, Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley, Belinda Carlisle, Imagination’s Leee Johns and ABC’s Martin Fry in town for the Virgin Atlantic 80s Rewind Festival, the Mother City is awash with a sea of neon clothing and nostalgic supporters.
Competition was fierce for the best dressed title:

Tickets are still available for tonight’s performance of the Virgin Atlantic 80s Rewind Festival at Computicket. Book them now!
