Biography

Nneka Lucia Egbuna is a hiphop/soul/reggae singer and actress who was born in Warri, Delta state on 24, December 1980. Her music career started when she moved to Hamburg, Germany at the age of 19 to attend university and she found herself collecting her thoughts on paper.

Nneka toiled for years in the underground scene in Germany, performing countless clubs and opening for various Nigerian and foreign artistes. She first gained public attention in 2004 while performing as an opening act for dancehall reggae star Sean Paul at Hamburg Stadtpark. A record deal followed shortly after and her first album, Victim of truth was released in 2005. Hailed by critics worldwide as one of the finest discs of the year, Victims of truth was heavy with the social observations and political consciousness that would come to characterize Nneka’s later work.

She released her latest albums My Fairy tales independently.
