I am a huge fan of this woman’s music, she really goes deep into the soul in all of her music which you’ve got to love. Like I said in my last post, a true artist is one that is able to bear their soul in their music and that is exactly what Nneka does. For all of you who don’t know about Nneka, she is a Nigerian/German hip-hop inspired soul singer who grew up in Warri which is in the Delta region of Nigeria. Once she turned 18, she relocated to Hamburg, Germany and pursued a career in singing & Anthropology. Nneka states that her key inspirations in music are Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Mos Def, Talib Kweli & Lauryn Hill. The fact that she looks to such greatly talented artists for inspiration is a telling sign that her music is great as well.
Here are a few of her songs that I love:
