Global Girls: Nneka, The Fly Naija Gal


Here’s another global gem since we all loved V.V’s London state of mind. A true blend of two worlds, Afro-German Nneka Egbuna brings a raw sence of soul, style and subtance that I haven’t heard since Lauryn’s Miseducation classic. I first peeped her in Arise after hearing rave reviews from folks who saw her open up for Lenny Kravitz back in April and receiving the Best African Act for this years MOBO’s. She’s already released three albums that our Euro Parlouristas are already feeling and is gearing up for her US release next year—so you know I had to give you a scoop. Check her lead single and a video after the jump. Thoughts lovelies?

Her first US Single “The Uncomfortable Truth” from Concrete Jungle


Nneka, “Heartbeat” from 2008’s No Longer At Ease
