Brooklyn Beckham sneaks into SA to film a video for charity and meets 'inspiring' local woman

Cape Town – British celebrity Brooklyn Beckham has revealed that he recently visited South Africa and met an inspiring woman. 

The talented son of footballer David Beckham dropped out of college last year – where he was studying photography -  to pursue an internship in the UK and then snapped Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner for a much talked about magazine cover. 

He has also done several other high-profile projects and released a photography book titled, What I See in 2017.

In a caption underneath a beautifully edited video, the 20-year-old explained that he along with Dutch Iranian entrepreneur Anna Nooshin came to South Africa to support the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and The Gates Foundation. The video was filmed in Johannesburg and was posted on Tuesday. 

While in SA, Brooklyn met an inspiring young woman named Sipho, who is living with HIV.

The famous photographer said about Sipho, "she radiates so much happiness."
