When Nneka walked in to speak with us, she had a tissue in one hand and a cup of warm cocoa in the other. Fresh off a packed weekend of performances, interviews and appearances she was a bit under the weather. But despite her approaching cold she still took time to chat with us about her past and present tour with Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.
Born and raised in Warri, Nigeria, Nneka Egbuna was exposed to all different types of music as a child. Although the half Nigerian, half German singer is new to the US, she previously released two complete albums and several EP’s abroad. Her most current album, “Concrete Jungle” has gotten much praise as being a harmonious mix of her distinct cultural background.
Watch to find out more about her and why she’s not concerned with fitting into one box.
