With 23-year-old award-winning singer and songwriter Shekhinah
My current #MCM: John Legend. He’s an amazing musician, husband and father. I opened for him during his South African tour and it was a beautiful experience. And my #WCW is: Right now, K Naomi. She shares a lot of inspirational content on social media – especially about self-love – and I really love that about her. My happy place: My couch, at home in Johannesburg. My life mantra: ‘Life is what you make of it.’ Fave Insta account: @theshaderoom – I don’t condone it, but I’m obsessed with gossip. My guilty pleasure: Fried chicken! My style in three words: Grunge, boho, lazy. The item of clothing I can’t live without: Black stockings. I wear them with everything.
My go-to makeup look: Highlighted brows and standout lashes. Fave drinks spot: Hudsons in Parkhurst. It’s where we always go to debrief after a show, or to have a bit of fun if we’ve been working hard. What I’m most looking forward to in spring/summer: I’ve been working hard at the gym, so I’m excited to experiment more with seasonal fashion. My favourite type of training: Cardio. I ind weight training really, really horrible. I especially enjoy cardio outside of the gym, so my trainer and I will usually take a power walk outside. She makes me walk and talk, which helps to synchronise my breathing and voice. It really helps with my work. The best advice
I’ve ever got: ‘You can’t change someone, you can only change yourself.’ The artist I admire: SZA. She’s moulded her craft and grown as an artist. Performing feels like: Real life. It’s all I want to do – it allows me to express myself.
What I look for in a partner: Humility and attraction. They must also be funny and be able to crack a joke.
