[embed width="620"][/embed]

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 closed the show with a beautiful rendering of "My Home" (above). This is the last in a four-part Bare Soul series brought to you by Okayafrica and Decon. Below are her alluring versions of “Shining Star,” "Do You Love Me Now?," and "Camouflage."
