Nneka Gives a Firey Debut Taking LA By Storm

The much anticipated Los Angeles debut of Singer/Songwriter Nneka last Wednesday Nov. 18 at the SkyBar as part of the Svedka Vodka Sessions series, was everything hoped for and then some. The Sultry vocals of the Nigerian born singer was only enhanced by the strong message she communicated to the dazzled crowds. Helping warm up the crowd on that windy night was the masterful spinning of LA’s own DJ Vikter Duplaix.

It was a high profile night covered by many, including Blogger Yaz Jenkins. For more photos and info you can check out her blog Pop!A-Razzi
