Powerful Nneka Quotes

A compilation of 20 Nneka quotes.

Nneka Lucia Egbuna was born on December 24, 1980. She is a singer, songwriter, and actress from Nigeria. She sings in three languages: English, Igbo, and Nigerian Pidgin.

Nneka was born in Nigeria to a German mother and a Nigerian father. Nneka’s German mother left the family when she was two years old.

Nneka originally came to public recognition in 2004 when she opened for dancehall reggae sensation Sean Paul at Hamburg Stadtpark, and after great praise, she declared her plans to record her debut album.

Following the release of her debut EP, The Uncomfortable Truth, she embarked on her first tour in April 2005, performing throughout Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Nneka’s debut album, Victim of Truth, was released in Europe, Nigeria, and Japan in 2005. After receiving positive press, the UK’s Sunday Times dubbed Victim of Truth “the year’s most criminally overlooked album.”

Nneka Quotes

  1. “Everything that the West is today is predominantly because of Africa.”

2. “Take advantage of educating yourself.”

3. “I hope that what I am today is of positive benefit to other people.”

4. “If you’re able to grow up in Nigeria and go through certain things, you’re able to tackle anything around the world because you’re able to live wherever, if you can survive in a city like Lagos or Warri or Niger Delta, as far as I’m concerned.”

5. “I must be true to myself within my music or I would be a liar.”

Nneka quotes

6. “The cultural differences between Germany and Nigeria were extreme. The way they dress, the way they carry themselves, their religion. For two years I was overwhelmed.”

7. “In Nigeria, if you say you’re a singer, people say, ‘So what? Everyone sings.’ In Germany, my voice stood out more.”

8. “I don’t want to be a big star. I just want to get my message across.”

9. “My heart’s desire is to be recognised in Nigeria.”

10. “I think it’s important to learn instruments, whenever one has a little space. Be eager to learn and love your instrument.”

My favorite Nneka Quotes are, “Take advantage of educating yourself.” and “Everything that the West is today is predominantly because of Africa.”
