The good news for those of you who aren't up on game yet, is that she's coming through with her first official U.S. release, Concrete Jungle, in February 2010.

For your listening pleasure here is a track from the songstress entitled, "The Uncomfortable Truth." Check after the jump for Nneka's November U.S. tour dates. Naija on the rise!
