Dedicated to the 200+ girls kidnapped by militant extremists Boko Haram over 114 days ago, ‘Who We Are’ is Atlanta-based Nigerian singer Ene’s latest single.
The events of the Chibok kidnapping is one that affected Ene deeply. On a Facebook post, she states ‘I went to a boarding school in West Africa before immigrating to the U.S. I’ve been blessed with educational opportunities — enabling me to earn an MD and practice medicine while pursuing my passion for music. We can work together to ensure that nothing stands in the way of educating our girls.”
Ene was raised partly in Scotland and Nigeria and works full time as a doctor. In her EPK (below), she describes her music as ‘World Soul’ due to the different genres that she incorporates into her music. Her style is a fusion of African and Latin Rhythms as well as R&B, pop and jazz that are evident in her sultry vocals. Ene names Fela, Sade, Stevie Wonder and India Irie as big influencers in shaping her unique sound.
