It's been over two years since Nigerian-German songstress, Nneka, has toured the United States, and with the upcoming release of her third album Soul Is Heavy she's more than ready to return.
Nneka has also just released the Coki (Digital Mystikz) remix of “My Home” (premiered on Fader) which offers listeners a lively rendition of the heartfelt lyrics and powerful vocals derived from the original track. Nneka explains the song as the realization that “there is no peace on Earth until you accept that both bad and good are part of life.”
Encompassing a combination of hip hop beats, reggae grooves, brass riffs and African-pop, Nneka's album Soul Is Heavy is a raw and honest window into her beliefs of love, pain, politics and God. The album will be released on February 28th on Yo Mama's Recordings/Decon.
