Nneka – Europeanization Of African Roots

nneka 20When Nneka travelled to Europe from Nigeria, her homeland, she wanted to study singing. She  grew up in Warri, the Delta region of Nigeria, where she had contact with gospel music. Nneka migrated at the age of 18 to Germany, the country where her mother was born. There, she studied Anthropology and later, she met Dj Farhot, a producer who lived in Hamburg who helped her to define a musical style. Despite the fact that her songs have European and Anglo elements, she has included some rhythmic basis in her tunes and has incorporated Igbo lyrics to her songs, since she and her father speak that language.

  2. Damon Wayans Says He Wants to Do a Verzuz Battle Against Dave Chappelle
    The comedian and actor proposed a comedians version during a radio interview over the weekend.
    BabyFace. Teddy Riley. Patti Labelle. Gladys Knight. DMX. Snoop Dogg. Brandy. Monica.
    When it comes to music icons, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the Verzuz Cinematic Universe (VCU) has hosted more than its fair share on both the virtual and physical stage since its inception. Moving past the days of spotty
    internet service to full blown productions in front of fans, one might wonder what the next evolution of the pandemic-born battle could look like?
