Iyeoka (NIG / USA)
Over 36 million people have clicked Iyeoka’s video “Simply Falling” on YouTube. But the American-Nigerian singer with the great soul voice is much more than a “click queen”. Since her first tour in 2013, she has fascinated live audiences all over Europe. Probably because she boasts “the huge voice of Nina Simone, the timbre of Amy Winehouse, the sense of justice of Tracey Chapman and the very personal poetry of Bob Dylan” (ARD TV culture programme “ttt”).
