Nneka Announces U.S. Dates


From Nigeria to Hamburg to the United States, it is Nneka's journey that is at the center of Concrete Jungle, her stateside debut album available February 2.

Journeying to the U.S. to spread her message of hope, optimism and truth, Nneka embarks on her "Concrete Jungle Tour" January 27, hitting 14 cities including New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles.

The Nigerian-born artist will also make her U.S. late night television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman, which airs February 3. Other media supporters include SPIN and Rolling Stone, who recently selected her as an Artist to Watch in 2010. Additionally, her video for "The Uncomfortable Truth" has received regular spins on both BET and MTV.

The artist has also ventured into film, making available a short video of her November 2009 U.S. visit, titled Who Is Nneka? Who Is Nneka? is an intimate look at the artist, and the important message she hopes to share with Concrete Jungle. "My main message is to wake people up," Nneka explains.
