We caught Nigerian chanteuse Nneka at Cielo in NYC, where she performed an intimate acoustic set of standouts from Soul Is Heavy — grab the album at Decon. Nneka spoke of her relationship to "the system" in Nigeria and living in fear before she launched into a beautiful version of "Do You Love Me Now?" (above). This is the second in a four-part Bare Soul series brought to you by Okayafrica and Decon. Part one, below, is an alluring version of "Shining Star." Nneka is currently on tour with Bajah & The Dry Eye Crew catch them both live on their remaining dates!
