Back in June, the 9th annual Roots Picnic festival was yet another Philly day of shaking things up with unforgettable performances and good vibes. Attendees saw the return of DMX, the all clad in red Ibeyi, Kaytranada, Dev Hynes a.k.a. Blood Orange and more—with Usher backed by The Roots capping the night off with a groovy take on his hits.
We caught up with Jidenna after his performance on the North Stage after he graced his fans with storytelling, masquerades and his fresh, dapper style with a touch of ankara—and his quintessential red cap.
From touching on his plans to tour the continent this year, to sharing the vibes he felt throughout the day hanging with the likes of Anderson Paak and Kehlani backstage, watch more of what’s been up with Jidenna on “The Questions” above.
