I got to see Nneka live at SOBs one night. Before she came out, my friends from told me she was african. I expected african music and dialect that I wouldn’t have no understanding of. But she came on to stage and started to sing. As soon as I heard her first words to the song, I was hooked from there on. Nneka’s Nigerian accent coupled with her revolutionary lyrics gave me a soulful consciousness I never knew about her homeland. She help me realize that we all are one and that there are people out there who needs more help then others.

Nneka- Come With Me

“Come let us be truthful, surrender our pride
Admit the stains on our, our chest, our hands
We seek, we find, we take, we kill
Our love is hate, our smiles are fake
Take my body, take my hands,
Take everything you created
Take your riches, take your money, take everything
But not my experience”

Amel Larrieux’s voice and lyrics on this song engulfed me as soon as I heard it. This song is a reminder that there is someone out there that can “…live on my smile”

For Real!

I can run like a race for hours and hours
And don’t stop
I can float I can fly us to the highest
Mountain top I can breathe you, I can drink in your laugh
I can… I can live on your smile I can trip and if I can fall into your arms I can
Stay there my whole life
