Nigerian-born, Germany-based singer Nneka is prepping for her US debut, Concrete Jungle on Feb. 2nd, 2010. Nneka's emotion filled soul-singing and free-flowing rhymes embody the protest spirit of Fela Kuti and Bob Marley while being influenced by sass and attitude of Nina Simone, Erykah Badu, and Lauryn Hill. Her songs like "Heartbeat" and "The Uncomfortable Truth" speak about the frailties of life's injustices and struggles while exuding faith in social change and transformation. Nneka is the the new generation of protest soul!
