AllMusic Review by

Cementing her status as Nigeria's most successful musician since Fela Kuti, Soul Is Heavy is the third album from politically conscious soul vocalist Nneka. Further developing her unique blend of R&B, reggae, hip-hop, and Afro-beat, the follow-up to 2008's No Longer at Ease includes collaborations with Mercury Music Prize-winner Ms. Dynamite ("Sleep") and Roots MC Black Thought ("God Knows Why").
