Is music the pursuit of anthropology by other means? Nneka was born and raised in Nigeria and came to Germany, her mother's homeland, to pursue her studies which she gradually disregarded in order to dedicate herself fully to music. Note that this rapper-singer likes to express as much as she likes to listen, and thrives as much on stage as when acting upon society, she likes to write incendiary texts as much as she needs to make sense of the world. In that vein, her new album entitled My Fairy Tales, explores the history of the African Diaspora, between pains and hopes. A great political voice to look out for.
