JOHANNESBURG - The ever eccentric Erykah Badu entered the main stage of the DStv Delicious graciously. She wore a tall white hat and held a beautifully decorated umbrella.
She was calm, the stage was set, and her band was ready.
The crowd cheered in excitement to see the 'analogue girl in the digital world' perform songs they have been listening to most of their lives.
The event saw at least 18,000 fans pouring in to see the Bag Lady hitmaker end off their weekend. Her set was filled with most of her greatest hits which saw festival goers singing word for word.
The festival is an annual international food & music festival which took place at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit.
Speaking at the media briefing after her performance she said the mic is her therapy and she enjoys being on stage.
When asked how she felt about the crowd’s reception in the country she said she was received like a kid coming home from college, which made the family proud. "Like it was my first steps I took as a baby, like a put a great picture on my mom’s refrigerator. It was so much love and appreciation. I was overwhelmed.”
When ending her performance, Badu urged her fans to never stop evolving, growing and loving.
