Idols SA Winner Paxton Releases the Dreamy Video For ‘Demonstrate’

"Can you take me high like a tail feather?," Paxton croons.

17-year-old Cape Town-based singer Paxton was announced as the winner of Idols SA's 13th season last week on Sunday.


The singer decided to strike while the iron was still hot, as she just released a music video for her single 'Demonstrate.'

On the song, Paxton croons she requires someone who will give her excitement for a partner. "I need a go-getter/ Can you do better?/ Can you take me high like a tail feather?" she sings on the hook.

In the video, which plays out as a fantasy movie of some sort, she seems to be getting just that. Among chic models, who include the rapper Joshua The I Am, Paxton seems to be experiencing the excitement she demands on the hook.

Watch the video for "Demonstrate" below.

We caught up with Toketemu Ohwovoriole, a multimedia storyteller & journalist; Solis, a singer, songwriter, poet, & muse; Lauretta Yemoja, a beauty artist and rapper/singer; Tiwa Pearl, a dancer and creative; and Oyinkansola Dada, an art curator and founder of art gallery Polartics, to talk about their careers.
