An accomplished singer-songwriter and guitarist Nelson Emokpae, also known as “Nelly”, originally hails from Nigeria, Africa. He has drawn on his multi-cultural background and experiences to tell his story in music and lyrics. His skillful blend of soul, reggae and blues coupled with infectious hook lines and tremendous vocal abilities transport the listener into the musical story being told. Nelson has been compared to the likes of Seal and Sting, with a little John Mayer thrown in as he mixes a little calypso, a little Afro-beat and a lot of soul into a winning and charming style that is always a crowd pleaser. His journey has so far been very complex, and it would take several pages to get across to you, but he has found a better way; His story will be crafted in to melodies and dressed up with some lyrics and rhymes and played for you!
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
