We’re #Suited AF for Shekhinah’s Zimbabwean Debut at #UnpluggedZim
Unplugged is a monthly music and food festival that has in the past on local artists, both rising and established.. Once in a while, the Unplugged team surprises its audience with some international star power like DJ Zinhle, Oliver Mtukudzi, Jah Prayzah and Sylent Nqo. It’s also been a great springboard for artists on the come up like Bryan K and Killer T.
High flying South African R&B vocalist and Popstar Shekhinah is set to perform at the Zimbabwean post-winter Unplugged Concert slated for the 25th of August.
Shekhinah whose real name is ‘Shekhinah Thandi Donnell’ became famous following her exceptional performance in the music competition IDOLS South Africa. After singing and performing for many years throughout her childhood, she landed her first major gig competing in South Africa’s seventh Season of the hit television show where she made it into the Top 32. After being eliminated from the competition, showing high levels of persistence, she returned and courageously proceeded to the 8th season of the show only to make it into the Top 6 of the overall competition.
Since then she has evolved and established herself as an artist collaborating with the likes of Sketchy Bongo, Black Coffee, Jesse Clegg while rubbing shoulders with American Artist like John Legend.
Signed under the International record label Ultra Records, she’s owned chart lists with her beautifully crafted hits like Let You Know, Your Eyes, Suited, Please Mr and Breathing, amongst others. Shekhinah is strongly recognised worldwide as a formidable force in the African music scene. Her well-anticipated performance at Unplugged will be her first in Zimbabwe bringing Unplugged back to life after a somewhat controversial stint in May this year. Shekhinah will be supported by the equally noteworthy Tamy Moyo, Buhle, Vision of Hope and Asaph.
Unplugged has been hosted in places like Bulawayo and Kwekwe; although the venue is yet to be announced it’s safe to assume this edition will be in Harare. If you’re around, save the date. For ticketing info, check out Unplugged Zim on Facebook and Twitter.
