Kehlani, an R&B and neo-soul musician, has been named as the second international artist at Rocking the Daisies 2022.
The Distraction singer joins previously announced artists Clean Bandit and a slew of local talent on the lineup, which includes BLXCKIE, DBN GOGO, Will Linley, Sun El Musician, Focalistic, TxC, Sio, Matthew Mole, Aymos, Nasty C, and Kid Fonque.
“Regarded as one of the leaders of the contemporary R&B garde, Kehlani’s repertoire, at just 27 years old, is something to marvel at. Receiving her start on American Idol as part of a girl band in 2011, just three years later, Kehlani went on to drop their debut solo album SweetSexySavage and subsequently find their way to numerous collaborations with names such as Charlie Puth, Cardi B, Ty Dolla Sign, Eminem, Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, Zayne Malik and Musiq Soulchild (to name a few) in the years to follow,” reads a press release.
Kehlani’s upcoming performance at Rocking the Daisies 2022 will mark their first time performing on the African continent.

The festival will take place in both Cape Town and Johannesburg over the weekend of 7 – 9 October.
