MOBO Winner Nneka's UK TourWith the BBC Radio 1 A-listed 'Heartbeat' and 'Best African Act' MOBO under her belt, Nneka embarks on a five date UK tour following the success of her recently released album - the lush and visionary 'No Longer At Ease'.

It's a record on which brains, beauty and beats collide. It's a record that has already made its mark with chart success across Continental Europe and beyond. It's a record that Lenny Kravitz and Lauryn Hill both heard and said: 'I want this girl opening my show!' It's easy to see what got Lauryn and Lenny so animated. Nneka's music has still got a big splash of Bob Marley in the recipe, a measure of Nina Simone and a lick of Erykah Badu. But this time around there's more of the best ingredient - Nneka herself. Holding it all together is the emotional focus of her beautiful voice, located in a place somewhere between yearning and rage.
