Nneka rolls out the carpet for a stunning return to form with the release of her second single, ‘God Of Mercy’, to be taken from her debut album, ‘Victim Of Truth’ out on Four Music / Yo Mamma’s Recordings, and it looks set to sizzle this year.
Nneka was born in a small town called Warri in Nigeria and used to sing in her school’s and church choir in Nigeria which is where she honed her talents. “In my life the only places I really felt secure were, and still are, in the Music and in the Lord”, says Nneka Egbuna.
After relocating to Germany Nneka has been singing professionally for the last 5 years.
Her influences reflect her younger days in Nigeria as well as her time in the western world as she draws influence and inspiration from artists such as Fela Kuti and legend Bob Marley as well as contemporary rappers Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Mobb Deep and Lauryn Hill.
Teaming up with production whizzkid, DJ and Hip Hop Beatmaker, DJ Farhot (Hit Spot Productions), Nneka also roped in the musical talents of Maskoe and The Chosen Few Crew (Short Lord, Sensai Miyagie, Antonio, Seven 30 a.o.) to lay down some tracks for her debut.
Nneka’s brilliant single, ‘God Of Mercy’ has mega hit written all over it. Jazzy blues, hip hop / soul is what this Nigerian soulstress delivers. This is a gentle meandering song which evokes a summer of love feel with its sloppy drums as Nneka delivers her softly rapped verses and sweet choruses. Written by Nneka and produced by DJ Farhot, this is a track that will raze the speakers and take over the airwaves. Time to join in the Nneka revolution.
Look out for Nneka’s stunning debut album ‘Victim Of Truth’ out now!
