Watch: Swizz Beats & Alicia Keys Blessed in African Ceremony

Boricua hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz—who recently announced that he and Alicia Keys are engaged and expecting!—stopped by Good Day New York this week. While the musician was there to talk about his charitable work with the local Bronx Charter School for the Arts, the conversation was quickly steered towards his recent trip with Keys to South Africa for the World Cup kick-off festivities.

The couple spent some time in Africa after the concert and had quite an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Their union and baby were blessed by the elder women in a local village they visited in Durban, who took them under a healing fig tree that they believe has positive energy. “It turned into this ceremony that I didn’t know about. I felt like I was on Punk’d or something! But, yes we had a special blessing,” admitted Swizz Beatz.
