Ed Sheeran has added Shekhinah to his line up, along with Passenger for his first-ever tour in South Africa which will take place throughout March 2019!
There’s no denying that Shekhinah is one of South Africa’s greatest musicians, raking in awards and milestones, such as being the only female who peaked at number one in Spotify’s, since its launch in South Africa in March 2018. She has released her debut album ‘Rose Gold’ in 2017 leading with the single ‘Suited’. One of her successes are that her album is certified platinum and has claimed 6 SAMA nominations winning 3 for ‘album of the year’, ‘best female artist’ and ‘best newcomer of 2018’. She was also nominated for an MTV EMA for Best African Act. With the success of her singles ‘Suited’, ‘Please Mr’ and ‘Different’, Shekhinah has been announced as one of the highest streamed acts in South Africa. She was also named on Forbes Africa “30 under 30”. Now that’s more than enough reasons she has caught the attention of the UK’s greatest musical exports, Ed Sheeran whom she’ll open his show for this March.
