Nneka featuring Ziggy Marley & Eeday

Music Television, MusicTelevision.Com, Nneka, Gregory J. Chamberlain

Anyone who has read from this blog, or the archive, knows of Nneka. Here is a track not available on iTunes U.S., but is available on iTunes in other markets. The track entitled "Express Yourself" features features Ziggy Marley & Eeday.

Last year, Nneka toured the U.S. opening for Ziggy Marley's brother Damian Marley. It's great to see the Marley clan has embraced Nneka's music. I feel that Bob Marley would surely appreciate Nneka for the messages she puts forth in most, if not all, of her songs. She is one of my top 5 favorite artists since I first heard her music! gc

Nneka - THIS IS "IT"

Photo of Nneka by Gregory Chamberlain for Music Television

There is no better way to describe Nneka than to simply say she has "it".

Her songs are and lyrics are deep and complicated. They personify an independent voice and rebel spirit that challenges the status quo where greed and corruption in her native Nigeria and throughout the world is rampant. Right out of the box, in the feel and groove department, she has that "it" thing too. It's one of the main ingredients.

What separates Nneka from most of the rest in the supposed top tier is that her songs dig hard to say something important. This leads me to wonder why she is not in the top tier, yet.  I long for the day that she and artists like her are the top tier that exists. Perhaps in due time, substance will trump bling.

Her songs weave in and out from what seem like love songs at first, into geopolitical humanitarian statements often pointed at unnamed political leaders. At least her songs naturally conjure thoughts of certain leaders without even mentioning their names. Her songs make those who listen think. Nneka really reaches deep for truth which she considers to be real love.

This first song below is one of my all time favorites. It is a beautiful and timeless recording, as is the music video, and it is a very heavy and sad statement about the state of affairs in many parts of Africa and where she originates in Lagos Nigeria, where this video was filmed.

Nneka - Africans (originally released in Europe 2007)

This is an amazing live take of Nneka performing one of her signature songs titled Heartbeat. The studio version of this song (second one down from here) is the very first song I ever heard of Nneka's years ago. And, it did not sink in at first listen. It took a few listens to interpret the meaning of her lyrics clearly, but when I did I felt her depth and it had impact. The song is screaming at political leaders questioning if they hear the heartbeat of their electorate or in the case of dictatorships, the people they rule. I like the interview that follows live take in the video below. It's a tiny window of insight into Nneka. I have had a few chances to speak with her in person and I came away feeling her authenticity is genuine.

Nneka - Heartbeat (live in France with French/English Subtitle after song - 2009)

Nneka is some sort of female Bob Marley in terms of that activist spirit as she stumps for a conscious state.

She has a new record out for late 2011 titled Soul Is Heavy. It has not yet been released in America, but Amazon is offering up expensive import CD's. No idea why Sony Music is withholding the U.S. release, but they making a big mistake, in my humble opinion. Nneka is the kind of artist who deserves development and big pushes in the marketplaces of the world, everywhere.

This next track kills me. I love the live one, that is first below, as well as the next one which is the studio version. The song seems to be about politicians who make promises, but who fail to remember or live up to their promises, but it could be interpreted many different ways.

Nneka - Do You Love Me Now - Live On The Streets of Paris.

Bliz - Transition - (Rap - Warning: Explicit Content)

Heard the rapper known as Bliz for the first time, yesterday, after becoming acquainted with Redd Pen Media after they introduced themselves. Dug through Redd Penn's numerous music videos and when I heard this Bliz track entitled Transition. The song made me think hard about life's harsh realities and wonder how life can end up that way. Bliz lays down so many rhymes that are so true, such as "Guess you can't say if you ain't never been, man..."

It's a testiment to the reality of thug life and the prison industrial complex. I can't help but think and feel: "There for but the grace of God go I" when I hear a rap like this. It's thought provoking, but hopefully not provoking kids to reach for this. Enough of that already! Kudos to Bliz for his well done delivery. Hopefully he's just acting. Kudos to the director, Juan Ortiz, for the outstanding light & photography. - GC
