YoungstaCPT and Shaney Jay have recently dropped a music video for their popular track ‘Benni McCarthy’. This visual masterpiece is the second collaboration project from the duo’s ‘Suffer for Beauty’ album, which was released in March this year.
The music video was inspired by the fans’ love for the song and pays tribute to the legendary South African football player, Benni McCarthy. Shot by Mzi Xander, the video captures some of the important moments in Benni’s career, including his birthplace of Hanover Park and some of the football successes he had enjoyed.
Aside from the tribute to Benni McCarthy, the music video also includes behind-the-scenes footage of YoungstaCPT’s 2019 music video ‘Main Ous’, filmed near Benni’s childhood home, paying respects to the late AKA. The video also showcases Ocean View, where YoungstaCPT spent time with his grandparents, highlighting the humble beginnings and making dreams a reality.
The music video was shot at Athlone Stadium, a cultural landmark in the coloured community where Benni also played in his early years. The visuals strongly represent the homegrown aspect, with resident Shaney Jay making an appearance.
This music video is a beautiful tribute to Benni McCarthy, as well as a nod to YoungstaCPT’s own roots and beginnings. It’s a beautiful and heartfelt project that truly showcases the power of music in storytelling.
