Tricky x Nneka 'Nothing Matters'

Watch the video for UK producer Tricky's "Nothing Matters," featuring vocals by Nigerian singer Nneka. Loving this Tricky x Nneka collaboration!


Tricky's latest album False Idols is being heralded as his best since the UK producer's golden, mid-90s run of trip-hop output. For his new single "Nothing Matters," Tricky enlists Nigerian songstress Nneka, a longtime Okayafrica favorite, for a trotting electro-pop gem with visuals that feature high contrast black-and-white images of post-war British architecture. Nneka owns the track, skillfully juggling a delicate whisper and strong howl — and, near the end, spitting a few bars. Watch Tricky / Nneka's "Nothing Matters" below.

Meet Nigeria’s All-Female Bikers Club, Featured In Darey's Latest Video

Darey collaborates with all-female bike riders to reimagine a pandemic-free world in the new video for "Jojo."

In 2017, when Jeminat Olumegbon, an events manager in Lagos, set up the Female Bikers initiative (FBi) with her friend, Nnenna Samuila, the objective for the organisation was to facilitate some form of education for Nigerian women. "A bunch of us, bike riders, came together because we knew when we ride we draw attention to ourselves so we used that as a form of communication starter, especially in rural areas," Olumegbon, code-named Speed Diva, tells OkayAfrica via a phone call. In the three years since the initiative has been in operation, it has started a number of programs aimed at confronting socio-cultural barriers set against women in Nigeria but none is more resonant than the group's campaign against breast and cervical cancer.

"We found out that a lot of women die of breast and cervical cancer in Nigeria and they shouldn't be dying because there are preventive measures but lack of knowledge is what is really killing us," Olumegbon says. According to Nigeria's Cancer Control Plan, breast and cervical cancer are the most prevalent forms of cancer in Nigeria, disproportionately affecting women. And the Female Bikers initiative, a scion of D'Angels Motorcycle Club, Nigeria's first all-female bikers club, is working hard to get women tested early.
