Marvelous Music: Nneka

Though categorized as hip-hop, Nneka's music is a nice mix of lots of genres. Despite it being very original it also has a very familiar sound to it.

The Nigerian-German, having lived in both places, has a great cultural understanding of both Africa and the Western world, you hear that in her music and if you pay attention to her lyrics it becomes clear that her message is a very political one.

It's so rare these days that people make music to touch on important subjects, sure songs often have some sort of message, but it's been a while since I heard someone trying so passionately to make a change.

Enough said, take a listen.
