Biography

Pop music is a ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ world. A starburst of YouTube notoriety and then oblivion. Or at least it is for most. But when your journey has been as long and extraordinary as Nneka’s – when you’ve travelled 10,000 miles and are still only just starting out - then instant celebrity is the last thing on your mind.

When your heart is as big as ... Read more in Amazon's Nneka Store

5.0 out of 5 stars She will blow your mind!! July 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Nneka is a 26 year old Nigerian/German singer/songwriter with her musical influences ranging from Fela Kuti to Bob Marley to Lauryn Hill. Her music is an eclectic hybrid of Dub, Soul, Hip Hop and even Electronica and Rock, with mostly socially conscious lyrics touching on hardship and injustice in Nigeria and often interjecting Biblical quotes.

Opening cut "Death" is a lilting Dub with echoing effects. The lovely "Heartbeat" features tinkling ivories and skittery beats. "Mind Vs heart" is a breezy Soul song with sprinklings of guitar, while "Walking" is Reggae with a traditional Gospel feel with inspirational lyrics about the walk/struggle black people have to make.

"Suffri" (meaning softly) is sung in Pidgin English with lyrics touching on the ills in Nigeria; electoral malpractice, the rich oppressing the poor, etc. "Come with me" is an acoustic Folky song with her vocals gaining intensity towards the end against a wall of harmonies. "Gypsy" has a Dub feel with Hip hop beats. "Halfcaste" is somber Hip hop with Nneka rapping autobiographical lyrics.

Touching on the tough life on the streets is the Reggae-ish "Street lack love" with sprinklings of tenor sax delicately floating in the background, while the self explanatory horn-peppered Reggae of "Niger delta" talks of the destruction and neglect of that region of Nigeria in the process of getting oil. "From Africa" is rhythmic traditional Igbo music sung in Pidgin English.

5.0 out of 5 stars PHENOMENAL album from an upcoming star!!! March 26, 2010
By Mike
Format:MP3 Music
"No Longer At Ease" is my favorite of Nneka's albums. She sings and raps from the soul and has so much emotion and incredible rhythm in her music. Give it a try, you won't be able to stop listening to this amazzzing album.

I can't stop listening to this album. I just wish she was touring in North America. Check out Deadly Combination.
