Maropeng stars in this 'cosmic' Johnny Clegg music video

  • March 06, 2017 | Stuart Buchanan

Have you seen the music video for Johnny Clegg's Take My Heart Away remix, released last year?

If not, check it out below – it's a beautiful story of a young township boy who dreams big and aims for the stars.

Taking centre stage is the unmistakable Tumulus building that houses the Maropeng Visitor Centre, albeit with an incredible, computer-generated space centre as an added backdrop!

Watch the video here:

The video was written, produced and directed by Johnny Clegg's son Jaron, a filmmaker. He told Channel24: "It was quite an emotional project for me – making a film for my dad. I treated it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and pushed really hard to bring the script to life. I put a lot of pressure on myself to create something I could be proud of."
