Cape Town - Award-winning singer Shekhinah may be our idol but this past weekend she met her idol – and it was everything she’s ever wished for.

The 24-year-old shared a picture of her and music legend Lauryn Hill in an embrace in front of a flower wall.

According to Shekhinah’s post, the picture was taken after Lauryn performed at her concert, which was held on Saturday at the Ticket Pro Dome in Johannesburg.

“Got to experience something magical last night... I got listen to @ms_laurynhill live wordsmith could even begin to scribe the way I felt or how much this hug means to me,” Shekhinah wrote in the caption of their picture together.

In the build up to the concert a lot of fans were skeptical about buying tickets to see her because of her reputation for cancelling shows, but the real fans such as Shekhinah and other local stars risked it all for Lauryn’s much anticipated performance.

Rapper Rouge also shared her experience with Lauryn, 

“I was shaking like crazy. Meeting the lady who guided me to be the musician I wanna be for WOMEN IN AFRICA without knowing. I'm reminded once more why I do what I do..words cant express what this moment meant to me. All dreams are valid”

Radio personality, Azania also tweeted how Lauryn performance was.
