Nnena has scripted and produced comedic bite-sized sketches to post as companion pieces for each track from her forthcoming EP – Check out the one for “Heart Moan” HERE and for the previously released track “Rewind” HERE. Last month Nnena released a hilarious visualizer and stunning live performance video for lead track “Rewind” from her EP.
An incredible writer, lyricist, rapper and vocalist, bursting with effusive energy and a massive personality, the Cleveland native, born Nnena Adigwe to Nigerian parents, credits some of her robust, descriptive storytelling impulses to her past screenwriting experience. A former basketball player, Nnena began writing comedic sketches during college. That soon led to working on more full-fledged projects—the kinds of works that needed sound tracking. Rather than pay licensing fees, she tried her hand at making her own music.
Nnena has already received critical praise from Teen Vogue, Flood, BBC 1’s Annie Mac, Apple Music’s Ebro, and has been a sought-after songwriter for artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna and Normani and has recently performed as the opening act for rising star Boogie, Mayorkun, and Trinidad James.
She explains making music for her is about telling stories that simultaneously define us and connect us to others. “I want my music to elicit the truth and make the listener feel comfortable. I want people not to feel alone and I never want my music to leave anyone out.”
In the music and visuals that she creates, she shares stories, scenarios, debacles and personal experiences with a warmth, humor, and finesse that almost make you forget how hard life can be. “I’ll make the worst situations funny.”
Nnena also finds inspiration for her music from the female experience: “My music is what other females wish they could say out loud, but I do it for them in a song.”
Her music reflects her eclectic influences ranging from Otis Redding to Millie Jackson, from Queen Latifah to Miriam Makeba to Kendrick Lamar and especially “Lauryn Hill, she molded me the most,” along with other neo-soul genre artists Musiq Soulchild and Jill Scott, as well from Drake, J. Cole, to Tiwa Savage.
