YoungstaCPT Shares Lovely Visuals for ‘For Coloured Girls’

Watch YoungstaCPT's music video for 'For Coloured Girls.'

In his latest music video, YoungstaCPT appreciates Coloured girls—the visuals showcase different Coloured women of varying ages, from different parts of Cape Town and other parts of South Africa. Some of the faces are familiar—you'll spot the writer Raisa Fisher, the dancer Tarryn Alberts and a few other familiar faces. A majority of them are just ordinary women and young girls that the emcee felt like shining the light on to appreciate brown women. A perfect visual to release on Valentine's Day.


"For Coloured Girls" is the latest single from YoungstaCPT's current album, 2019's award-winning 3T. 3T was the Cape Town emcee's first solo debut album after spending years in the mixtape circuit and releasing several EPs and collaborative albums with producers such as Arsenic and Maloon TheBoom.

"For Coloured Girls" is an ode to brown women from different parts of Cape Town—he lists multiple neighborhoods in which Coloured people live in the Mother City.
