She performed at the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House on Friday night as part of Vivid Sydney – the hugely popular festival where art, technology and commerce collide.“I had performed at the Sydney Opera House but in the foyer area for this Google corporate event,” Wafia, 22, said ahead of the event.Then I got to perform in the Sutherland Theatre portion of the Opera House for a TEDx event and later at the Concert Hall,
so I felt like I grew into it. I’m on such a high from it.”She performed with collaborator Ta-ku, with whom she recently released the single Meet in the Middle.
Although she’s only been putting out music for a short time, Wafia has already received plenty of attention, including from Pharrell Williams.“I was just about to go on stage at
