Pop music is a 'here today, gone tomorrow' world. A starburst of Youtube notoriety and then oblivion. Or at least it is for most. But when your journey has been as long and extraordinary as Nneka's -- when you've traveled 10,000 miles and are still only just starting out -- then instant celebrity is the last thing on your mind.
Nneka's first US release, Concrete Jungle is a collection of songs that put the singer/songwriter at the forefront. The album is an offering of love, hope and optimism dedicated to the people of Warri & The Niger Delta of Nigeria. Holding it all together is the emotional focus of her beautiful voice, located in a place somewhere between yearning and rage.
