Nneka 'Soul Is Heavy' + Tour w/ Bajah & The Dry Eye Crew + Contest


Soul Is Heavy, the third full-length from Nneka, builds on the Nigerian chanteuse's blend of hip-hop beats, Lauryn Hill-esque croons and an unmistakably Naija feel. We've been covering this release for a minute now — from our own Okayafrica TV piece with Nneka, to vibing on her stellar Lagos-street clip for "My Home" and her collaboration tracks with Black Thought and Ms. Dynamite.

Nneka's Soul Is Heavy LP is (finally) out now and avaiable for purchase in the US. In its promotion, Nneka will be embarking on a North American tour with Sierra Leone's premiere hip-hop bandits Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew. Grab the album over at iTunes/Amazon and check out the full tour dates below.

In addition, Okayafrica is giving away 2 tickets to the tour's stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, New York and Philly. Enter our contest below!
