Ashur Petersen and his mom just hit over 4 million views with their cover of “A Whole New World” from Disney’s Aladdin. The Cape Town duo are going viral across the world with their beautiful version of the song.
Ashur and his mom, Madeegha Anders posted the video just over a week ago and it has already amassed 4,6 million views.
The 24-year-old is the son of the late Great Dr Taliep Petersen.
He grew up with both parents being music artists and producers, and this naturally rubbed off on him. After matriculating from Wynberg Boys High School in 2010; he went to study at the University of Cape Town doing his BMUS.
Ashur recently successfully produced his very first show and performance called “Like Father, Like Son”, which was a sold-out show at the Baxter Theatre’s Concert Hall and 2 sold out shows at the Artscape Theatre.
He believes that this video is more significant than just himself and his mom.
"This is for my people. The Capetonians. For my people who never get recognised. For the artists who work with no recognition. If only the world knew about the talent that we breed in this land, we’d be unstoppable"
