Many times we perceive artists and their ability to do their crafts by how they are portrayed and captured by the media. By their interactions that are filmed. Whilst we can never fault their ability to do their craft, we often hear stories of how entitled some artists can be, once them and their crafts are accepted by the world.
This is not the case with John Legend. He is as humble as he is portrayed to be.
Yesterday, 07th November 2017, a day to remember. A group of friends and I won a competition which comprised a meet and greet with the legend himself and also tickets to his darkness and Light concert here in Durban South Africa.
Now I’d love to include every detail about the build – up and anticipation to THE moment, about how we obsessed over how we looked because we wanted it to be perfect, but I will spare you guys those boring details 🤣
All I am going to say is that he is as chilled as a cucumber, he has the most amazing smile, he is an absolutely amazing performer and the love he has for his daughter and his wife and then his music, is just absolutely admirable!
Now, if that weren’t super amazing, I also got to meet THE Shekhinah! Many of you who know me, know that I’m one of Her biggest fans 😍🙈.
I was honestly in awe at how normal and humble both these performers are. They really are just ordinary people doing extra ordinary things and I wish them nothing but the best in all their future endeavors.
But that still wasn’t the highlight of the night. The highlight of the night was that I got to spend the evening with these amazing girls.
We sang, danced. Laughed, almost cried, got wet in the rain and loved it and even shoved our shoes off just to take the moment all in. The #carTALs. And after it all, I cooled off at Cuba and McDonald’s with this Chika and her amazing hubby.
It was definitely one of THE best nights of my entire being.
A huge thank you to Big concerts and East coast radio for arranging the meet and greet. A huger thank you to everyone that helped us win , the votes, shares and support has been nothing short of amazing. And the hugest thank you to Amy and Laiyah for the memories of both making our carpool karaoke videos and lastnight, for always keeping it 100 and for the support through-out the years.
