Nneka Nominated for the 5th Annual Nigerian Entertainment Awards

Nneka nominated in two categories at the 5th Annual Nigerian Entertainment Awards

Fresh off the Distant Relatives tour with Damian Marley and NaS, Nneka has been one of our favorite artists of the year. With a strong showing on Concrete Jungle and a live performance reminiscent of Lauryn Hill, Nneka has just been nominated in two categories (Indigenous Artist of the Year and Best Soul/Neo Soul Act of the Year) at the 5th Annual Nigerian Entertainment Awards. Vote for her before September 18th over at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards website.

See her live at the Highline Ballroom on August 2nd, with Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew. Rumor has it Bajah + DEC and Nneka might even have a song together coming out in September. For more Nneka check out her video for "Africans" above.
