If there’s any major artiste we slept on right here on notjustOk.com in 2009, it has to be Nneka! (well, most people slept on her anyway). She’s been doing quite well in Europe but never really got a head start in Africa… till her MOBO Award win, followed closely by a Channel O nod. Today, this Waffi babe (born and bred) has broken every barrier when it comes to African music, and she’s started hitting the US hard with a tour billed to start soon. A possible Grammy candidate, if you ask me.
She recently gave a candid interview to Bola Mosuro of BBC Network Africa about how her career has blossomed since her MOBO win. You can watch the interview below.

Here’s Heartbeat, her breakout single…
…and then be prepared to be blown away by her performance of the song “Come With Me.”
