Turning up the South African heat with the latest Nando’s Music Exchange documentary
Late last year Nando’s filmed the third instalment of their Music Exchange documentary series with UK based DJ Chloe Robinson aka Barely Legal and South African rapper Dope Saint Jude. Barely Legal travelled to Cape Town to explore the sights and sounds that defined Dope Saint Jude’s musical upbringing.
Made in association with Noisey, the film follows the two artists after they meet in the Cape Flats area of Cape Town. Despite growing up in starkly different environments, DJ Barely Legal and Dope Saint Jude share a determination to succeed as female artists and the courage to experiment – from launching labels to boundary-pushing music videos. In the film, the two visit DJ Real Rozzano – a founder of the hip-hop scene in SA and talk about the sounds that made them, from Lauryn Hill to UK Garage.
As well as speaking to media about the fantastic documentary, PrettyGreen hosted a screening of the film. Media and influencers were treated an exclusive early look at the film as well as a Q&A session with Barely Legal and director Jak O’Hare. After the screening the attendees tucked into a feast of PERi-PERi chicken while secretly checking when the next flight to South Africa leaves from London.
