“South Africa”, NerdzSquared’s first 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.
NerdzSquared, two multi-talented YouTubers have been taking the online world by storm with their latest release, South Africa and their first music video – filmed right here in Cape Town.
In this cinematic display of their love for their city and their country, NerdzSquared band members, Warren Bright and Justin O'Kelly, featuring guest artist and producer Devon Marshbank, show the world why they #LoveCapeTown with amazing shots of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Camps Bay, Cape Town Stadium, City Sightseeing Bus Tours and more.
The boys have been producing YouTube videos for the past six months (they have more than 7000 subscribers and over 300 000 video views) and the idea for the “South Africa” music video was sparked by constant queries from curious YouTubers.
“There is this general idea that most visitors have, that South Africans live in the wild or bathe with lions. With this in mind, and the idea to appeal to ex South Africans and other South Africans abroad we wanted to make a video that was both humorous and patriotic. Our song "South Africa" is very catchy and you will find yourself singing it over and over”, says Bright.
When asked why NerdzSquared chose the Mother City as the location for the music video, Bright says: “We #LoveCapeTown because of the easy access to do many things. Mountains, beaches, hikes and scenery ... we have it all waiting at our doorstep, and we are extremely lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.”
