American artist Kehlani has finally released the much anticipated music video for her track, Distraction.

Now I had no doubt in my mind that this video would be flames and LOOK AT GAWWWD!

Kehlani once again delivered!

Known for her unique style and addictive lyrics, Kehlani has always managed to exceed fans expectations.

One can never really guess what she has planned for her next project.

Distraction has no complicated message. It’s exactly as the song title says and what Kehlani asks over and over in the track.

“Do you,do you, do you wanna be….a distraction baby?”

“This song is about a girl. I was talking to this girl and I was really in my vibe like in Philly making all of these songs for the album. And I was like ‘it’s cool to like have a little thing but right now I’m so in my vibe. So you gotta be a distraction but you really can’t take away from like what I really got going on. I made an Instagram caption first and then was like ‘ay that shiii was fire’ and then took it off the caption (laughs). Then we made the song right after,” Kehlani told Genius. com.

Enjoy!

Yoncé all on his mouth like… LEMONADE! 🍋

When life gives you lemons, be like Beyoncé. Make an album and call that shit Lemonade!

Okay, Okay she bad and she know it! Bow down b*tches! 👑

Who the fvck do you think I am” – Uhm I am pretty sure you are Beyoncé. This diva knows she be dripping swagu! And it’s not like we don’t know that.


Beyoncé has stunned the world yet again by releasing a visual album. This obviously had fans going crazy.

Wait, Wait,  allow me to introduce to you, Lemonade! (Please do not hold the applause)

Beyoncé dropped her album LEMONADE this past Saturday (23/04) and it is causing quite a stir. Not only has the QUEEN blessed her Beyhive with some new music, but she has blessed them with some visuals to go along with it.
Beyoncé released the album shortly after her HBO special. This special features her latest tracks off the album, this being her way of premiering her gold to the world.
Fans have been waiting for this much anticipated album for a while now. When Bey killed it in her song Formation, fans knew they had to prepare themselves for something even bigger.

 

Are we even surprised that Beyoncé dropped an album unexpectedly yet again??????? Its takes one back to December 2013 when she released her self-titled album and made people lose their minds.
The album tells a story. And it comes with an intense story line, If I do say so myself (insert Jay-Z here).

Beyoncé has  people talking once again and this time everybody is giving Jay the side eye. I mean are we even surprised?

But lets move on, shall we?

The 12-track visual album is set up in such a way that it really does tell a story. One cannot listen to it in any other order. If you listen to the album, you will soon realize that this wasn’t just an album to get out and make ’em dollars quickly💰. This was art that took its time and when Beyoncé was proud of her work, she knew that this was the right time to drop it. And my, my, my what a time to be alive.

The album shows a different side to Beyoncé. This in your face album, shows her “I’ve had enough” side and you know what? I ain’t even complaining. Do you Booboo!

Beyoncé goes deep and if you thought that Bey was done… oooh child!

On one of the tracks titled “Sandcastles” Beyoncé shows us the vulnerable side again. All that anger and revengefulness subsides when it comes to this track. While listening to the song, you feel every emotion that Bey is feeling while singing it. You hear the rawness of her voice. This song shows us such a rare side to an artist that fans hardly gets to see.img_6764-2
If you read through the track list and saw that track 10 is called FREEDOM and it features Kendrick Lamar, you already know before even listening to it that it is going to be fire.
Well it is safe to say that that assumption is 100% true and more! The beat alone makes you think “Oh Lawd, they gon’ kill it” and that is exactly what they do!
Need I even comment on Kendrick’s verse?
  😭🔥🔥🔥
Like yeah, open correctional gates in higher desert

Yeah, open our mind as we cast away oppression
Yeah, open the streets and watch our beliefs
And when they carve my name inside the concrete
I pray it forever reads”

I pray it forever reads”

With a catchy chorus, this song will definitely be a crowd favourite!
Freedom, Freedom! I can’t move
Freedom, cut me loose!
Singin’, freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
Cause I need freedom too!
I break chains all by myself
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell

Hey! I’ma keep running
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves”

And if you still do not know what you’re in for when it comes to LEMONADE, here are a few lyrics taken from some of the songs off this album:
“How did it come to this? Going through your call list. I don’t want to lose my pride, but imma fvck me up a bitch”
“What’s worse? Looking Jealous or Crazy?” 
“Middle fingers up, Put ’em hands high. Put it in his face. Tell him BOY-BYE” ✋
Beyonce-Knowles-high-quality-backgrounds
Too smart to crave material things
Stacking her paper
Stacking her cake up
She grinds from Monday to Friday
Works from Friday to Sun”
Nine times out of ten, I’m in my feelings
But ten times out of nine, I’m only human
Tell me, what did I do wrong?”

“But you my lifeline, think you tryna kill me? If I wasn’t me, would you still feel me? Like on my worst day? Or am I not thirsty, enough?”

“They say true love’s the greatest weapon
To win the war caused by pain, pain
But every diamond has imperfections
But my love’s too pure to watch it chip away”

Listening to this album, I didn’t have to skip through the songs. I literally sat and listened to each and every song, even googling lyrics to understand it better. This album amazed me. It’s not the Beyoncé that most is use to, but sometimes change is good. This was a bold move but I mean, it’s Beyoncé👯.

Can one ever doubt this woman’s ability to BRING IT??!

Now go on and call Becky with the good hair and tell her ’bout LEMONADE!🍋

Rihanna drops music video for Needed Me

It’s heeeere!!

The baddest song on her album now has a NSFW music video!

Try to hold the excitement, please.

Rihanna is getting good at this “not-telling-anyone-shiiiii” thing! First Work, then Kiss it Better and now this!


Guys, Needed me now has a music video! A music video that will have you thinking “Can this chick get any more badass?” 🕶


In this video, directed by Harmony Korine, Rihanna exposes her boobs once again.

I feel like seeing her topless or wearing a sheer top has become a norm ever since ANTI was released. Rihanna spends most of the video in a hotel room by herself with a breathtaking view of the ocean in a sheer robe and thong while holding a pistol.


Rihanna plays an assasin and  plots her revenge on her target, a man covered head to toe in tattoos,who is the main guy in the video. She then walks through a strip club, knowing exactly where he is situated. While he is getting a lap dance in a private room, Rihanna enters and fires several shots, three to be exact, killing Mr Tattoos.


This music video will remind some of her BBHMM video where it also has a storyline. Both music videos ends up with a dead body.

The video then ends with her smoking on a yacht right after she gets her revenge.


If this video doesn’t make you realize that Rihanna is the Baddest, then I suggest you watch this over and over and let her show you why she is Queen. 👑

Brap! Brap! Brap!

Introducing, William Singe!

Everybody loves listening to covers of popular songs on Youtube. It has become a norm for people all over to do their own version of these songs. It’s wonderful to see how many talented people there are across the globe. It’s even better if you find someone who just blows your socks off.

Well, I stumbled across someone who had me thinking “Why isn’t this guy famous yet?!” The person I am talking about is 23-year-old, William Singe. This guy is all the way from Sydney, Australia.

If you one of those people that doesn’t believe in covers because you believe that only the original artist should sing their songs, then I suggest you listen to this guy. Not only does William sing songs by different artists, he also makes the songs his own. He takes songs with up beats and turns them into slow jams. For example Fetty Wap’s 679. Not sure what I mean? Take a listen here:

He takes popular songs and does his own renditions of them.Did I mention that he plays his own music for his covers? No instrumental version or backtrack! This guys is talented.

William has a way of taking songs that you wouldn’t even listen to and make number one on your playlist. As another example, I am not a fan of Lifestyle by Rich Gang ft. Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan because in my opinion, its too noisy! But when William works his magic, I have this cover on repeat. Listen for yourself and see why I am feeling this track now:

Usually, I hate it when people take songs and try to change it, but with this one I am definitely not complaining. ❤

You’re Welcome!

 

Two for one surprise! Rihanna drops Official video for Work! 

If you thought that the song Work itself is amazing, then you would absolutely love the video to go along with it!

Now most really amazing songs, has really crappy music videos but not this one honey, oh no no!

Rihanna took her time with this one and can we just admit, she delivered and proved why the saying “worth the wait” exists!  

The official music video, which was directed by Director X, dropped today and it is filled with island flavour. Island flavour OVERLOAD to be exact! This music video setting will remind you of Rihanna’s Man Down  music video, which was shot in her hometown, Barbados.  This video was shot in a Caribbean restaurant in Toronto.

This whole music video is a party. People grinding on each other and having a good time. You will think you went back in time and you are now on the set of Dirty Dancing. Remember that famous scene where everyone is just on top of one another, supposedly dancing? Picture that with just a whole lot more grinding. Also the amount of twerking in this video is so much that it will have you attempting it after watching this. But whose complaining? Rihanna is a natural when it comes to winding those hips, so for the #Navy this is a plus!

  
Can we just talk about Drake in this music video? One would think that with all this island flavour, where does Drake fit in? But girls 😍, Drake is fire! When it gets to his verse, we see him against a wall and Riri twerking and grinding up on him while he does his thing. It amazes me how cool and calm he stays while there is little to no space between Rihanna’s booty and his… You know? Drake is THAT guy! 👏

But wait, there’s more! As the music video ends, you wonder “but why is there three minutes left if the video is finished?”, well let me tell you about Miss Fenty and Drizzy! Not only did they record one music video for Work, they recorded TWO! Because who listens to this track once? I can hear the heavens just opening “haaaaaaaaah 😇”.

 

In the second music video, which was directed by Tim Erem, the setting is more intimate than the first one. Just Drake, Rihanna and a couch. Yes, a couch!

Rihanna dances and sings as if she’s alone in the room while wearing a short skirt and a sheer top that shows her nipples, while Drake sits in the background and enjoys the show.

Do you envy Drake yet? 🐸☕️ While watching this video, you get the feel of Drake’s Hotline bling video. Maybe it’s the lights, but when you watch it you will feel the same.

www. rap-up.com

 

The work these two produce together is fire! One cannot help but think about that important word ; CHEMISTRY! Drake and Rihanna’s chemistry is at a high in these videos and it is starting to become harder not to notice it!

If you haven’t yet made an effort to watch this video, then just follow this link:

You’re Welcome!

Work, work , work, work, work!

The wait is OVERRRR! 

The wait is over, the wait is over!🎶  

  

ANTI IS OFFICIALLY RELEASED and the fans can finally be blessed with some new Rihanna music. I could cry just at the thought of it 😭I am so excited!!! Don’t worry girl, we love your old music but you just got us all excited to hear dat new new!

  

ANTI has been released a day after Riri dropped a single off this much anticipated album called Work featuring Drake. Then a day later, yes TODAY, she released the deluxe part of the album which gives fans THREE bonus tracks. Clearly she is trying to play with our feelings. Now before I get into praising the album, let’s just take a minute to thank the heavens for this long awaited album 😭😭😓🔥🙏🏻………. Amen! 

  

Rihanna has been keeping her #navy on their toes for quite a while now concerning ANTI. The album was first rumoured to be called R8 but Riri later announced that the official name is ANTI; which is quite a weird name if i do say so myself (if I do say so myself🎼). When you ‘Anti’ something it means against, I don’t see this fitting because we all on Rihanna’s side, right? Hopefully The beauty from Barbados will explain the name soon. Moving on!

  

The album cover is a little creepy. I am sorry but I know I just took the words right out your mouth. Just a random child with a crown and a balloon. Not forgetting that dash of red. Well wonder no more because I have done my research. The artist behind this album cover is Roy Nachum.  

 
Believe it or not this is a picture of Rihanna when she was younger with a crown over her eyes and a balloon in her hand. The cover also has braille dots all over it. Seeing obstructed eyesight in Nachum’s work is the norm. He uses his artwork to get through to people, telling them to open their eyes. By adding braille to his work, this allows people who are visually impaired to also experience art. If you are wondering what the braille on the artwork says then fear not, I got your back. The piece was written by poet Chloë Mitchell:

    

The album starts off with a track called Consideration. This track is nothing like any Rihanna fan is use to. A friend of mine once mentioned that it would be cool if Riri did more songs that has that Barbados feel to it. Well, here you go Friend! This track is full of that island flavour. 

 
Another track on the album is called Kiss It Better. This song will definitely be a crowd favourite. Kiss it better is all about a relationship that ended but she now wants it back again. In the song she reminisces about the good and the bad in the relationship. Even saying things like “So I argue, you yell, had you take me back. Who cares when it feels like crack?” This song is about those type of relationships that are toxic yet it’s what you need. Definitely one of my fav tracks!  

 
Another Anti favourite I get to boast about is Work featuring Drake. Work is one of the tracks off this album that will have you loving it by just one listen; I swear one listen and you will be hooked! This is one of the more fun sides to Rihanna. Even though this song will have you winding your hips like you are Shakira, it will have you asking “what the **** is she saying?” In the beginning and during the chorus, Rihanna sounds like she’s mumbling but this is all part of the song. This just sets the right kind of mood that comes with the song. And need I mention the chemistry between these two? Two hit singles together and a third on its way to the top? Need I say more! 

  

So as you might have noticed, artists are now taking golden oldies and making it more modern or making it their own. Rihanna decided that it is now her turn to take an old school ballad and make it her own. But all she did was take the old school melody and added her own lyrics. In this song called Love on the brain, we see a different side to Rihanna. Something we as the #navy isn’t use to. She lays her heart on this track and gives us a chance to see a softer side to her; besides all that bad girl shenanigans. This track has had people comparing her to Etta James and Erykah Badu.  

 
After listening to Needed me and taking note of the lyrics, I actually appreciate Rihanna’s cocky side. We are kind of familiar with this side to her and we are not complaining at all about this track. Giving compliments and telling the guy how good they were but then changing it up and saying things like ” You was just another nigga on the hit list. Tryna fix your inner issues with a bad b*tch. Didn’t they tell you that I was a savage” Does this not scream “I do not need you”? Reminds me of Jhené Aiko lyrics that says “You weren’t special ’til I made you so” , well this is exactly what Rihanna is trying to say in this song. This is a raw and real side to Riri. Fans has even started calling this their anthem. Saying that in a way this song gives a female power. You have to listen to this song to completely understand why this particular song has females going crazy! Guys better watch out! 👀

  

I could go on and on about every single track on this album, but I will not allow myself to spoil it for you. ANTI consists of many different Rihannas. And I am sure you are thinking “What you mean different Rihannas?” Let me explain; on every single track she brings something different to the table. On one song she brings so much island flavour and then on the next she’s singing an old school ballad. Allowing us to see different sides to her. ANTI album as a whole cannot be categorized into one box AND IT SHOULD’NT. 

  
All I know is, this was definitely worth the wait.  Now what you waiting for??? Go get Anti right now!

  
BRAP! BRAP! BRAAAP! 

ANTI is Reeeeal! 

  
I have to start this post off with an honest heart.. I thought Rihanna was “just kidding” when it was rumoured that she was going to release a new album. With all the rumours and her pushing her release date further back, I started to lose hope.. BUT FEAR NOT!! ANTI is real!!  

 

So Rihanna probably knew that fans (like myself) were starting to doubt whether ANTI was real or not. So she had to show us that she has our backs! 

  

She released a single featuring Drake called Work. And it was released TODAY! 

Now many would be over the moon that Riri came through and provided, but one has to state the obvious, this is yet another track that Drake and Rihanna has worked on together. Let’s talk about the fact that she and Drake makes such great music together. What’s my name? and Take Care are two great hits and then this? Can we just take a moment….. Talk about chemistry!😍

  

Work is the name of this oh-so-catchy song and this is eveything beyond your expectation. You know how you expect the song to be “bad” just because Rihanna portrays that ‘bad girl’ type but nooooope! This track has little bits of the ‘old’ Rihanna. I am talking about the SOS and Break it Off kind of Rihanna. This song has a catchy chorus that will soon be on every single person’s lips! You will find yourself winding your hips while listening to this song on repeat! I promise. 

  
 If this is a taste of what her much anticipated album will be like then Ghaaaad damn Riri! I don’t know about you but this song has definitely got me even more excited ( and convinced) for Rihanna’s new album, ANTI

 If you haven’t heard it yet, then i suggest you minimize this post and download it immediately.

  

You’re Welcome.

Hello… It’s Justin Bieber!

images-6

Let me start off by saying, I am not a fan of Justin Bieber, but OH MY BELIEBER his new album is FLAMES!

This post might come off a tad bit bias but I don’t care, you guys need to know how insanely good this album is.

So Justin Bieber has been silent for quite a while now and everyone used this silence as a way to push him down, making all types of negative comments. The media even tried to come up with different reasons as to why the Biebs just went M.I.A. But little did they know, he was about to do the unexpected.

Now we all know that ever since Boyfriend was released, Justin Bieber started gaining more matured fans (is it even okay to make that comment?). In this track, he showed the world that he can sound like a matured,young man and this got girls weak in the knees: like made your knees freeze? Haha images-3

The album is titled Purpose and the name definitely says it all. Justin Bieber took a totally different turn with this one and made it something that all can enjoy and relate to. When I say the words “relate to”, I mean that everyone  can relate to a few songs on this album. All the tracks that are on this album, has a message that comes wit it. There are different emotions that goes along with each track and it will also bring  familiar feelings along with it that will have you saying “oh my word! I remember when I went through this”.

The first track on the album is called Mark my words. This track is an intro on the album. I feel like this intro is used to prepare fans for what is yet to come. I would see it as Justin telling fans “watch me”. Telling all the negative people and media that they need to sit back and prepare to be blown away.noyDZ0SI64EGSzHzTHyrKa0ZY_ksOHqPNVGBphprSDygNlJYBoqyd4k7avDpUuexbI6M_I6tCIX2Q77xC6fmr4vvCe04nM1WJdlH-ZHfOPhVcuKYQ7ZQcdNzfGvIhtHRm2MhaZhcMOIDeri16k-k80s09PPtVg=w399-h369-nc

Now I wouldn’t want to spoil it for everyone and go through every track and explain what it is about because I wouldn’t want to take away the feeling that I felt when I heard all the tracks. My emotions went UUUUUP! So to be fair, I will just mention a few of the many favs that are on this album.

Let me just say that there are 20 tracks on this album. Uuhm excuse me? What? Yes, belieb it!

Crowd favourites are obviously What do you mean and Sorry . These are two of the tracks that gave fans a taste of what was yet to come. This was a sound that was totally different to the normal Justin Bieber that we are all use to. Whether you a fan or not, you know how JB is supposed to sound. Don’t even deny it.

justin-bieber-00-320x192

Track 6 is called Company and can we just take a moment to appreciate this brilliant track. How smooth is Justin Bieber’s game?

Can we , we keep..keep each other company? Maybe we,can be, be each other’s company..ooh company

He wastes no time and Ladies, before he even asks this question, he will have you saying “YES! We can”. I won’t spoil it and give away every single detail about this track but all I know is that with this track, he is showing you just how smooth he is; Guys listen up!

images-4

Track 9 is called The Feeling and is all about going through the stage of being confused and stuck between being in love and being in lust. I am sure at 21 or 22 years old, the same age as Justin, we can all somehow relate to this phase. This song is sure to have you thinking twice about certain love situations. It willl have you thinking back to when you had to deal with a situation just like this. This song is defs going to be a crowd favourite too!

f91302a48531e6ce4fb8a59a7d3401fa

Besides the many love advice and experiences that is being given on the album, there is a track that is so inspirational. Track 12 is called Children and this features Skrillex. So let me just stop there for a minute. If you see that Skrillex is featured on a track, that’s how you know that this song is going to be a hit. The beat in this song compliments the song perfectly. It’s a serious song but adding Skrillex to it makes it even more enjoyable. This song conveys a message to everyone, young and old, to take a look at the children of the world and know that change starts with them. JB wants people to pay attention to the positive in this world that is currently so negative. Clearly, this track was inspired by the king himself, MJ!

There are five featured artists on this album. The artists include Big Sean, Travis Scott, Skrillex, Diplo and Nas. Although there aren’t much, this was just enough to make this album one of the best.

images-7

When it comes to my personal, personal, personal opinion concerning this album I would have to be honest. This album can easily be number one on any chart. I feel like people are so focused on Adele, who released one song after a long time. Yes, people love songs that make you miss that stranger you saw on the bus when you were 12 but listen up people! Justin Bieber was silent for quite a while and then BAM! He releases an entire album. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?! Where is all the credit for this guy? Where are all the Facebook updates about how amazing this album is? Why isn’t the internet going insane? Or are we just focused on the negative this guy does?

images-8

Let’s play a game of never have I ever. Never have I ever, listened to an entire album from beginning to end and be simply blown away. Usually you need to listen to a song a few times in order to say “oh that’s my fav” but nope, not with this album. Never have I ever, been a Justin Bieber fan, but oh then there’s this album. Never have I ever, gotten goose bumps for songs that I’ve heard for the first time. Never have I ever, felt the emotions that an artist is trying to convey through a particular song. YES, I felt it JB. I could go on and on but let’s stop right there.

images-5

This album is unlike anything else. It cannot be compared to anybody else’s work and it shouldn’t be.

Justin-Bieber-VIP-Package-

This is an album of self-discovery and acceptance.

This album is growth.

This album is Justin Bieber.

This album is Purpose.

V&A Food Market

IMG_1044

The V&A food market is the place to be! This market is situated in Dock road, Cape Town. This is the perfect place to visit, whether it is intentionally or not. It is super easy to find and is right next to the V&A Waterfront.

Looking in from the outside, you won’t believe that there are more than twenty little shops that you can purchase from and it is all unique in their own way. Not one stall is similar to the next. You can make your selection of anything from gourmet foods to all the different kinds of tea. This food market offers different kinds of foods and drinks for all ages.

IMG_1035

One of the best parts about this place is that it is filled with the friendliest people. The people that owns stalls are really nice and they are more than willing to give you some information about the product or products that they are selling. They greet you with a smile even though you are not purchasing anything and just having look. The atmosphere in this entire building is just so fabulous and the constant buzzing of people gives it that real market feel. You know when you see actors in movies go to markets? This is exactly what it feels and looks like.

IMG_1034

One of the stalls that I would start off with is the stall called By Nature. This stall sells every little kind of nuts, dried fruit, seeds, grains and pulses. If you are a lover of all things healthy then this is the stall for you.

There is also a stall that sells different kinds of tea. If you thought that the only tea is rooibos, then you need to make your way down to the V&A waterfront market to check this out. So for all the tea lovers, this one is for you.

IMG_1025

There are different vendors within this little building, including a stall called The Hungry Herbivore.I walked past it and thought it was just really good toppings on toast. Turns out it wasn’t toast but instead it is called raw ‘pizza’ slice. I know you thinking “raw pizza??” but it look absolutely delicious. This stall sells vegan, gluten free and dairy free foods.IMG_1024

One of my favourite stalls is Yokos. This stall sells smoothies, yoghurt and fruit and muesli. This is just healthy heaven. Everyone wants to be healthy but we all know that not all healthy foods are yummy. But this stall seriously throws out the “yuck” and brings all things yum. IMG_1023IMG_1011

For all those who love biltong, including me, there is stall that just sells all things biltong. The name of it is Stokkiesdraai and I swear this stall makes you want to purchase every kind of biltong that they are selling. The stall gives the feel of the whole wildlife theme. They even have a board that says “Enjoy the rugby with your favourite biltong”.

IMG_1013

This is a clever way to get people to buy it because biltong is the perfect snack when the family gets together to watch the rugby or even if they are just popping in to say hello.

IMG_1015For all those who simply love baked goodies, the Harck & Heart stall is definitely for you. They sell all the little cookies that you can only imagine like little ginger bread men to Christmas trees and little Christmas boots. And for all of those that are in love and just simply do not need Valentine’s Day to show your loved ones that you are in love, this is the place for you too! They also have big heart cookies that you can buy for your loved ones.IMG_1014

The cookies have sweet messages on them and are just as tasty too.

Here you can also buy assorted Belgium chocolates and also for all those brittle lovers, they sell small treats of these too.

What is a market without assorted beverages? There are a few vendors within the market that just sell beverages. The first one is called Dr juice and they sell probably the healthiest juice that I have ever tasted. No salt. No sugar. Just fruit and vegetables. This is perfect for all those health junkies too.

They even have this cute sign that says “Warning raw juice can seriously improve your life”. IMG_1009

If you haven’t yet heard of bubble tea, then where have you been?! One of the vendors there also sells bubble tea. I’ve had bubble tea before and what I can tell you is that the iced tea has little bubbles in in it that bursts with flavour.

You have to try it at least once if you visit the market. IMG_1007

One of the other beverage stalls is the Truth coffee stall. If you are too far to make it for a lovely cup of amazingly good coffee in Buitekant Street in Town, then make a stop at the V&A Food Market because they are there too.

This place has like this real feel of a market. There are many different vendors within this market and it is not just ready to eat food. There is a guy who sells vegetables too. His stall consists of just vegetables, so if you are looking for some good vegetable to take home and cook then this stall is for you. Speaking of vendors that do not just sell ready to eat foods, there is also a cheese stall. This lady sells different types of cheeses. From the normal cheddar cheese we all know and love to the extravagant cheese that you do not eat every day.

For all those spice lovers, there is a spice stall called Cape Town spice market too. This stall is situated up the stairs and allows you to purchase any spice of your choice.IMG_1032

For all those who love going to the bar on a hot day to cool down with a nice cold beer, then the bar at the market is where you should be. There is a bar upstairs and there are different alcoholic beverages to choose from.

IMG_1039

One of the questions that are frequently asked when people visit food markets is “is the food there halaal?

When it comes to halaal food, not a lot of people are really in the know about this side of food. If something is halaal then it means that the food is permissible for Muslims. The word halaal itself means permissible or lawful.  The meat that Muslims eat is required to be slaughtered in a certain way. These meats have to be slaughtered according to specific rituals. When there is a green sticker on food packages or even a sign up at restaurants, then this means that it is safe for Muslims to eat those specific foods or at that particular restaurant. To some, if you’re not Muslim, you wouldn’t really understand how important it is to know whether the food is halal or not.
