Rita Ora & Nneka

The singer responsible for such smash hits as “Party” and “R.I.P.” who has been tagged by many a music critic as “the next Rihanna”Rita Ora pulled up Nigerian Songbird, Nneka onto the stage during her performance at V Festival 2012 of her hit single, “R.I.P.”

Many music heads know that a sample from Nneka‘s popular “Heartbeat” song was used in Rita Ora‘s hugely successful, “R.I.P” and it was a huge surprise to fans when Nneka came on stage to perform with her.

The V Festival is one of the biggest concerts that hits England every year during the penultimate weekend in August and features a myriad of superstars from different music genres and countries so I can imagine how many Rita Ora fans are now bumping to Nneka‘s music.

The recently concluded V Festival featured the likes of Nicki Minaj, LMFAO, Emeli Sande, Tinie Tempah, David Guetta and Cher Lloyd just to name a few as the event is held at two parks simultaneously which share the same bill on up to four different stages. Here’s a clip of the performance. Check on it.

      Shey u can all see that it’s not only Tiwa that use to off shoe when performing. Lol, lovely performance. I think Nneka is über talented and is as real as they come. I also think she’s a “rainbow girl”. Love her. Thank u for not posting my comment on Teju baby face’s video shenanigans. You don’t have to post this either. Na u get ur site.

      Bye the way, someone please tell Don Jazzy and Dbanj that Bacardi is using the beat of Oliver in their commercial. Just mentioning it so they can get their due.
