His concert tickets are close to being sold out and it’s with good reason – Pharrell is worth the watch; whether he’ll be showing off his musical talents or not, we look forward to seeing him in South Africa for the “AreYouWithUs?” campaign. This is a creative partnership by Woolworths aimed at uplifting education and environmental sustainability in the country.
In case you are still contemplating attending the event, here are six good reasons you shouldn’t be unsure:
He is shockingly 42 years old, but doesn’t look a day over 30. We love his young looking skin; but more than anything, we love that he is young at heart – perhaps this is how he keeps his skin young.
HE IS SUCH A NERD
He was a member of the hip-hop band N.E.R.D, but he is also a real nerd. He may not look like a bookworm, but Pharrell is one of the few hip-hop artists who are genuinely into books. In fact, he is so invested in academia, it is the reason he is the face behind Woolies’ education campaign.
You get your bubblegum rappers. You know, the ones who rap just to please the crowd or make money off the fans. But that isn’t Pharrell. Pharrell is one of the most sensitive rappers who keep it real. He knows how to please the ladies with his lyrics, but also knows how to keep it real with the guys or homies.
MR GOOD LOOKING
He doesn’t just look young, but is totally handsome and attractive as well. He is a pure example of God’s beauty in all the right places. Need we say more, you’ve seen the guy right?
BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS HAPPY
Who doesn’t love themselves a hipster? Okay, perhaps not every hipster, but you need to make Pharrell one of those hipsters you like, and he will bring you a little happiness.
He is a fashion designer, businessman, creative of all sorts, and Grammy award-winning producer and performer. You have to love him for his skills if not anything else.
