Rosefest 2020 – Power to She! is proud to play its part in seeking actionable change in the music and creative industries. This is while being mindful of and exploring the context they work and create in. Shekinah shared her thoughts on her brainchild.

“Rosefest culminates into an amazing music experience, however, the journey of Rosefest has been 8 weeks of creating open discussions with women through conversations like body image, anxiety, gender-based violence, bias in the workplace and deeper discussions that highlight women whilst educating society”

Shekinah was excited to share the day's major headline acts on her Twitter account, which included Ami Faku, Boity, Darkie Fiction, Msaki, Busiswa, Holly Rey and Simmy took the stage.

The ever-so humble Ami Faku was overjoyed by the love she receives from her fans, she expressed her gratitude when one fan Tweeted that he will be tuning in to the Rosefest because of her. Ami Faku is definitely one of Mzansi's most talented vocalists/songwriters and it comes as no surprise that she was on the lineup.

Boity also graced the event with her first performance as part of the second annual “Rose Fest”, this past weekend alone the busy rapper/media personality was booked for four different live performances.

Simmy also gave a stellar performance as usual and she looked amazing in her natural hair and semi-traditional outfit, known for working closely with award-winning artist, Sun El Musician when Simmy performs live, fans fall in love with her all over again because she gives it her all and engages with her audience.

Another powerful vocalist to serenade us for the evening was Holly Rey, the Durban-born singer who produced smash hits Deeper and You is making waves in the industry as she deserves! Her new-found mainstream success has been a long time coming for the bubbly star who began her music career more than a decade ago.

Arguably the best performance for the night went to Busiswa, the star has worked on countless music collaborations in the country and abroad, having worked with Beyonce on her visual album Black Is King as well. It comes as no surprise that Rose Fest attendees loved her energetic performance.
