Nkiru aka "NK" is a British Nigerian R&B/Afrobeats singer, songwriter, and musician born and raised in Newham, East London.
Her journey into music started from her interest in poetry as a young child, this interest manifested in the form of rap. Her influence then was majorly music she heard growing up, from artiste such as Shystie, Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Fela, 2face, Missy Elliot, Bobby Brown, Shalamar, Ja rule, Notorious B.I.G, TLC, to name a few.
Nkiru is known to bring a smooth and sultry R&B offering, led by East London flow and sensibilities, and her infectious Afro-influenced lyrics and cadence. Her records see Nkiru waxing poetic about ex-lovers, chilled vibes and enjoyment.
With support from the likes of Beat FM, Reprezent Radio, Westside Radio, and Climax Radio, as well as collaborations with N2theA (Stormzy, J Hus, Mostack, Not3s), BoatzMadeIt (Mr. Eazi, Eugy, Mista Silva) plus the early success of her previous releases such as ‘Roll With Me’, ‘Jeje’, 'On Point' and underground releases such as ‘Mr. Maga’ and ‘Shakara’, Nkiru is poised to leave her mark in the UK R&B and Afrobeats music landscape this year.
