Nneka 2015
Nneka has announced summer tour dates in support of her forthcoming studio album ‘My Fairy Tales’, due out May 26th on Bushqueen Music.

‘My Fairy Tales’ was recorded and produced in France, Denmark and Nigeria while Nneka was living in Paris. It was produced by Mounir Maarouf, the Danish Silver Bullit team and The Slag.
