Solange Knowles releases music video filmed in Cape Town
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.
Pop singing sensation Solange Knowles has released the music video for her hit single, Losing You, which was filmed in Cape Town.
Already trending on Twitter, the video sees Knowles, younger sister of superstar Beyoncé, dancing on the streets of Langa, diving into a swimming pool and cycling around the vibrant township, dressed in stylish, retro outfits.
Losing You is a single off her third as-yet untitled album.
At the time of the music video shoot, Knowles said in an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper: "The locations for my video will largely be inspired by the colour in the architecture and townships around here. We'll just take a camera and see what happens.”
Knowles drew plenty of attention when word got out that she was filming in Cape Town in late August. Set to appear on the cover of Elle SA’s November issue, Knowles is considered by many as a bona-fide fashionista.
