When Identity is the currency it doesn't pay to be part of the 1%.

Hypnotic rhythms, Cajun guitars and falsetto vocals will be your guides as you journey deep into Yinka's phantasmagorical world!

 

Hey!

 

The title of my new song I DON'T EXIST is a sentiment I'm pretty sure everyone in AfroPunk community has felt at sometime or other! 

The song itself contains…

I'm not on here that often but I do see you and appreciate your comment. and it is a vibe as far as the Nina Simone reference. Her voice is distinctively hers. you know it even when she was speaking. No one can mimic, but I certainly admire and would love someone to hear my voice and go, "that's Nakia"...

 

Peace to you and all you do, love. http://nakiahenry.com
