On Wednesday South Africans learnt that legendary soul singer Erykah Badu would be performing at the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival, and we could not contain our excitement.
New Zealand soul muso Jordan Rakei will join Badu at this year's festival in September, as well as DJ collective Jazzanova and British acid-jazz band D'Influence.
Tweeps vowed immediately that they would be attending the event.
