WATCH: Grammy Winner H.E.R. Performs ‘Lonely at the Top’ at South African Festival

H.E.R., the American singer, wowed the audience with a solo performance of ‘Lonely at the Top’ and ‘Smile’ at South Africa’s ‘Hey Neighbour’ event.

Asake, a Nigerian artist, had a hit song called “Lonely At The Top.” Asake enlisted H.E.R. to remix the song last month.

‘Smile,’ on the other hand, is a collaborative track released in 2020 by Afrobeats singer Wizkid.

Last weekend, the Grammy-winning singer made her first appearance in Africa at the festival.

Hey Neighbour is a three-day global music festival presented in collaboration with Heineken. It brings together foreign and local artists.

“The Grammy-winning artist took centre stage to deliver solo renditions of Afrobeat hits – Asake’s “Lonely at the Top” and Wizkid’s “Smile,” reads a statement released on Monday.

“Her choice to spotlight these Afrobeat tracks during her first-ever performance in Africa underscored the global acceptance and influence of this vibrant musical genre.

“H.E.R.’s solo interpretation of these songs represented a significant cultural moment, as she immersed herself in the essence of Afrobeat.

“While honouring the Festival’s monumental celebration of Heineken’s 150-year legacy.”

Other entertainers who performed at the festival include Rema, CKay, Nasty C, Focalistic, Musa Keys, Sauti Sol, and Khalid.

H.E.R. is an American R&B singer and songwriter. Born Gabriella Wilson, she has received an Academy Award, a Children’s and Family Emmy Award, and five Grammy Awards.
