Youngsta’s Top Reasons to #lovecapetown
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.
He’s been making waves in the Mother City’s Hip Hop scene since 2011 but at heart, Youngsta (born as Riyadh Roberts.) is just a #lovecapetown boytjie with big dreams.
Hailing from the bustling Wynberg in the Southern Suburbs, the 22-year-old rapper has had his sights set on fame since the tender age of 12, when he wrote and recorded his debut single. A decade later, Youngsta is reaping the rewards of pursuing his dreams and can proudly lay claim to the title of South Africa’s King of Street Rap , as well as performing alongside some of music’s greatest artists including U.S. legend Lil Wayne.

In the video below, he shares his tale of success and just why he #love(s)capetown:
