Born in Nigeria, Nneka relocated some 10,000 miles to Hamburg, Germany, at the age of nineteen to pursue a career in singing alongside a degree in anthropology. The hugely talented singer hooked up with DJ and Hip-Hop beatmaker DJ FarHot and ever since, their strong musical relationship has been the backbone of Nneka’s success. Nneka cites famous compatriot Fela Kuti and legend Bob Marley as well as contemporary rappers Lauryn Hill, Mos Def and Talib Kweli as key influences in her pursuit of musical recognition. “Her album Victim Of Truth is just as good as The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill”, according to the Sunday Times! Nneka provides a range of sounds from deep soulful ballads to funky hip-hop tracks and she’s reinventing the 90’s UK soul sound. Check out her latest album No Longer At Ease featuring the hitsingle Heartbeat. Expand your horizons and make a superb discovery of new talent!
