Rapper Youngsta CPT is known for his love of The Mother City.

Through songs like Wes-Kaap and To Live and Die in CA, the uber-talented artist uses his platform to speak about the best and worst parts of Cape Town.

CITY PRESS REVIEW: Youngsta CPT's booming record.

Now in his latest video and single, For Coloured Girls, Youngsta CPT writes a love song for the women from Constantia to Fish Hoek, Delft and more.

This feeling of adoration is in keeping with a conversation that Apple Music's Ebro had with Youngsta last year during which he said: "Cape Town has the most beautiful women in the world. Women like this [he then gestured to the crowd and Jeannie D, who was also in attendance at the gathering] would be considered supermodels if they were born in America because their beauty would be recognised for what it is, incredible."

Channel24 also attended the vibrant chat - which wasn't filmed - during which Youngsta spoke about his creative process and more.

When asked about how many children from all corners of South Africa look up to him as a musical and cultural influence, Youngsta said in part: "I hope that I spark one of the minds that change South Africa, through my music."

For Coloured Girls was directed by Dale Fortune and features a wide array of women including influencer, Nadia Jaftha.

At the start of the video, Youngsta writes: "Words are not enough, and I couldn't include you all, but this is for my coloured girls."


For Coloured Girls is featured on the rapper's latest album which is titled 3T
