- Shekhinah has admitted that she had a tough time navigating her life in her 20s
- The singer realised she was more focused on her brand than herself, which included her friends
- Shekhinah is hosting a Rosefest Festival of Fantasy today for Women's Day, which features a line-up of all-female artists
Mzansi songstress, Shekhinah, has spoken out about navigating her life in her 20s, which has been more than tricky but has moulded her into who she is today.
While some may think Shekhinah has everything going for her, especially being announced as the top-streamed SA female artist on Apple Music, her journey getting here wasn’t easy.
According to TshisaLive, during her interview on the YouTube channel, Defining, Shekhinah described her 20s as a process of discovery.
“You think you know yourself and then it’s like, noooo, you don’t know yourself. I thought I was aware all this time. My twenties keep slapping me across the face.”
But the singer said she has learnt to deal with the blow life keeps throwing at her.
“l am grateful for life. It’s part of the journey. As a musician I want to continue to unpack this for as long as I can.”
Shekhinah released her debut album called Rose Gold 2 years ago in 2017, which has also been the brains behind the upcoming RoseFest Festival of Fantasy that takes place today, Women’s Day.
The talented singer said it’s important for her to focus on running an all-female production that’s also headlined by female artists.
“Every step I’m making is one that I want to make, and that’s a really cool position to be in.”
The 24-year-old singer said she had taken a break from the industry in June to focus on her health after undergoing surgical procedures.
Shekhinah explained that adulting had presented many challenges thus far.
“The bank is a big one, My personal life is a disaster. My love life is a disaster… no, it’s interesting.”
The singer also described herself as a “horrible good friend” because she has not paid enough attention to her friends due to her focus on 'Shekhinah the Brand' instead of being herself.
