“Stay” by Nneka

I can’t believe I’ve strayed away from the amazing persona of Nigerian singer Nneka this past year. After producing her first album, Concrete Jungle, she’s created waves of sumptuous talent that’s almost non-existent to the masses of what’s most popular around the world. Her fierce curly fro and aura of confidence encapsulates the minds of many with the truth and power that resides in her music. Her raspy croons emanate a persona of compassion and loyalty to her native continent of Africa. Many of her songs tremble with the revolutionary movement of social justice within the groundbreaking elements of her words. Yet, Nneka pulls out her more emotional side in this melancholy tune from her latest album Soul is Heavy called “Stay.” The shadowed logo of a cartoon version of herself comes alive in this visual play-land of stark colors and progressive movement. The tune embodies a somber mood extenuated from the dismal violin and light piano. Passion politely escapes her voice as she pleads for a loved one to stay. This song further represents the amazing ability of what Nneka has to offer. She is a woman who stays true to the integral values of her mind which could only define her as presence who’s here to stay.
