We’re still on a high from Jill Scott’s phenomenal performance at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans and now she’s bringing her Black Girl Magic along as we take the party back to South Africa for the second edition of ESSENCE Festival Durban!

No stranger to wowing audiences around the globe, we’re excited to officially announce that Jilly from Philly will be taking the stage during the 2017 ESSENCE Fest Durban weekend, happening September 26 – October 1. Festival attendees can look forward to hearing the Grammy Award-winning songstress, actress and author perform a mix of her newest music, along with the classics we all love, when she takes stage in Durban.

Jill Scott joins an already announced lineup that includes Reverened Al Sharpton, Bishop T.D. Jakes and a host other influential voices who are making waves on the South African pop culture scene in entertainment, business, politics, activism, and more.
