Nigerian Soulstresses Nneka & Asa on MTV Iggy! View the Photos & Watch Nneka’s Interview



Nneka was recently profiled and interviewed on MTV’s Iggy.
The Nigerian musician also delivered an acoustic set of songs from her recent album. In her interview, Nneka opened up as she shared the source of her inspiration.
If there were no pain, there would be no inspiration. So it’s coming from a dark place, I would say. But I like the dark. I’ve understood that within the darkness, you can always take something from it. And that is what has made me create an album that is, I think, positive; that uplifts people, gives them courage and hope.” she said.

We totally love the photos and her acoustic set will melt you heart! Talent…

      I think it was meant to be awkward. Large table, really small teacup set? The proportions are all off, and quite intentional. Her facial expression pulls it together.

    I love the fact that Asa has her own style and it works for her. I also love Nneka’s free spirited mind and approach to life. She is a darling and they are both very talented musicians.

    call a spade a spade – WIERD is an understatement. All these sugarcoating nonsense. Say what you really think, na wa for you ppl. Not different – the real definition is WIERD – lets not mix the two words up – there is a difference btwn wierd and diferent!!!

    A part of me misses the old, austere Asa that seemed to have more depth than this Asa. Although, I must say that she’s glowing now and every artists deserves change.
    Still, I miss the old Asa.
