Chaka Khan set to headline Delicious Festival

With her frizzy hair, diva persona vibrato voice and larger than life demeanour Chaka Khan, together with the Godfather of House Louie Vega have been confirmed as the headliners for this year’s DStv Delicious International Food & Musical Festival 

When ZAlebs attended the Sony Max Upfronts event a couple of weeks ago, the organizers of the festival hinted to us that this year’s line-up would be absolutely insane and they were right! What better way to pair our indulgence of some of the most delicious food in the country than with the sounds of two of the biggest artists in the world? Especially when that locally produced food is displayed in several gourmet food markets; it really is set to be tasty pairing experience. 

“DStv is excited and honoured to be the first to bring an iconic woman such as Chaka Khan to our shores, in almost two decades. Our Subscribers can attest to the fact that she has been the soundtrack to their childhoods and many more memories. To see her live, surely is a life-long dream for many.” Says Colleen Goodman, Head of Retention for DStv

One artist whose childhood was strongly influenced by Chaka Khan is Kanye West who sampled her 80’s hit track Through The Fire for his debut hit  single, Through the Wire.

The late Whitney Houston also took a page out of Chaka Khana extensive crate of musical hits with her 90's single Every Woman.

Aaw man! Don't you just wish you could just relive 90's when watching these type of videos?

The DSTV Delicious Festival is set to take place on the 6th of June 2015 at Waterfall Polo, Estate in Midrand.
