A Chronologial Listing Of YouTube Videos Of The South African Gwijo "Beyonce" (October 2018 -August 2021)

Edited by Azizi Powell

This pancocojams post presents a chronological listing of all the YouTube gwijos that I have come across as of this date (September 13, 2021) that have the name "Beyonce" in their titles. These videos were published on YouTube from Oct 2018 through August 2021. 

Hyperlinks are given for each entry in this list along with a brief description of the video. In addition, brief information (including the video's publisher, the length of the video, and statistical information as of September 12, 2021) is also given for each entry on this list.

With one exception, all of these "Beyonce" gwijo videos feature male singers. Most of these videos are very brief (less than 1 minute) and most of these videos have no comments in their discussion threads. 

The content of this post is presented for folklore, historical, and cultural purposes.

All copyrights remain with their owners.

Thanks to the composer/s of these "Beyonce" gwijos. Thanks also to all those who are featured in these videos and thanks to the publishers of these videos on YouTube.

Additions and corrections to this list (including descriptions) are very welcome.

CHRONOLOGICAL LIST OF YOUTUBE "BEYONCE" GWIJOS

It's likely that these "Beyonce" gwijos were sung before one was published online. 
The publishing dates for these videos aren't necessarily the date that these videos were made. If you are aware of "Beyonce" gwijos that were sung before Oc. 2018 please share that information in the comment section below. Thanks! ]

Description: 
This is the only YouTube video that I found of girls singing the "Beyonce" gwijo.
 
Some South African 
females in their school uniforms are part of an outdoors audience outdoors for a progam that includes male students singing the “Beyonce” gwijo. The girls begin to sing that song harmonizing with the boys. Unfortunately this video clip ends waaay too soon with the scene of the  girls moving in a procession while singing this song.
