Kelis is on the World Jam menu

CityPress - - News -

In­creas­ingly quirky R&B star Kelis is head­ing for our shores for the in­au­gu­ral World Jam Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, which will take place in Dur­ban. She’s billed to per­form on De­cem­ber 6 along­side lo­cal rock­ers Prime Cir­cle and Bri­tish act The Kooks.

“2 days. 60 acts. 350 artists,” is how the fes­ti­val is billing it­self, slightly rem­i­nis­cent of the am­bi­tions of the botched Tribe One fes­ti­val in Tsh­wane. The Milk­shake singer­song­writer has not been as prom­i­nent as Nicki Mi­naj, who was on the bill for Tsh­wane. In­stead, she has been hon­ing her gourmetchef skills. She has de­vel­oped a cook­ing show for TV, re­leased a line of sauces and is writ­ing a cook­book.

Cook­ing is so big for her that her new al­bum is called Food. The first track is called Break­fast and on it, her four-year-old son asks: “Hi guys, are you hun­gry? My mum made food.” Other songs on the al­bum have ti­tles like Jerk Ribs, Fri­day Fish Fry and Bis­cuits N’ Gravy.
