Nneka

Nneka Egbuna has always been singing, but it was only by chance that she turned it into a career. While studying after moving from Nigeria to Hamburg in her late teens, she met DJ Farhot, who would bring hip-hop into her life. It hasn’t left since then, but it’s gained company over the years: soul, reggae and many other genres have inspired the singer and songwriter to this day. Nneka has had a stellar career, playing with big shots since before she had a record deal and, in 2005, made international waves with the release of her first full-length, »Victim of Truth.« Enthusiasm for her energetic and sensitive songs hasn’t died down at all, but the artist – who has also worked as an actor in the meantime – has kept a relatively quiet schedule as of late. This is not the only reason why her concert at Pop-Kultur will be a rarity.
