Syleena sizzles for one night

US singer Syleena Johnson still has what it takes to get the heart racing.

The 38-year-old singer of the hit I Am Your Woman is in the country for her one-night only show Women of Note in Bloemfontein tomorrow night.

She also sang the hook on Kanye West's All Falls Down on the rapper's debut album The College Dropout.

This is her second visit to South Africa. She was last here a decade ago. This time she promised her fans loads of entertainment.

"I'm a high-energy performer. People don't come to shows to sleep, no, child, they do that at home. My job is to give more than what's on the album and if you like to dance, you'll enjoy the show . It's like a Charlie Wilson show."

One of her opening acts, Ayanda Jiya, said she was looking forward to the show.

"I've been rehearsing for this show for the past two months after they told me I'd be opening up for Syleena. It's one of the biggest gigs I'll play," the Go Go Girl singer said.
