Ed Sheeran wines and dines in Cape Town
Everyone knows a visit to Cape Town is not complete if you haven’t been to at least one wine farm and a world-class restaurant - and international hitmaker Ed Sheeran is no exception to that rule.
'The Shape of You' hitmaker is currently in the city and will wrap up the second part of the South African leg of his world tour at Cape Town stadium tonight.
Sheeran has made the most of his time in the country and has been spotted at sports events, local restaurants and even wine farms.
On Tuesday afternoon the red-haired singer spent the afternoon at Groot Constantia. He also purchased two cases of wine.
Sheeran enjoyed the wine so much, that he had to have 24 bottles. But what's not to love about our local wines?
The staff at Groot Constantia described Sheeran as a "very nice guy", who was "open to people taking a selfie with him" and even offered to take the picture himself.
Later the same day, Sheeran was spotted at the Test Kitchen where he shared a table with an elderly couple .
Michelene Dyers, who was at the restaurant with her friend, Lezahn Jansen, had a "slightly awkward" encounter with the star as they were leaving the unisex restroom.
"My friend and I were in the bathroom and he came out of the cubicle just as we were leaving. We said hi and asked if we could take a selfie. He took the phone and took the picture himself. It was very awkward because he just came out of the bathroom," Dyers laughs.
Sheeran is set to do his final SA performance at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday.
