Nneka

Friday 29 June

Nneka
Main stage

Who? The Nigerian singer-songwriter who likes to shake up the world.

Why? Because king of hip hop Nas himself wholeheartedly praises her talent and she ensures Lauryn Hills’ succession. Live, Nneka sounds even more uplifting and empowering, having you sing along to more songs than you might suspect.

How do you know her? Blood, blood, blood keeps rushing through your veins as “Heartbeat” resonates across the crowd. The song was sampled by none other than Chase & Status and Rita Ora. Nneka doesn’t shy away from the “Uncomfortable Truth” and her political manifestos make her one of the strongest contemporary African voices.

Listen to some now… Her world hit “Heartbeat” has over 15 million views and her live performance at Jam’in’Berlin has you beg for more.
