In 2009, She won the MOBO award for Best African Act.
In the words of influential music magazine, Rolling Stone, “Nneka is…pure hotness”
She was named as one of the Top 10 artists to watch in 2010 by SPIN Magazine.
Her new single “The Uncomfortable Truth” was picked as the iTunes Single of the week for 1/26 – 2/1.
And now she is appearing on the David Letterman Show tonight as the musical guest!
What more can we say, Nneka is quite simply on fire!
There are so many striking things about Nneka, however, we are most enamored with her talent and the strong sense of social consciousness conveyed in her music. She is truly a worthy musical ambassador for Nigeria and Africa.
