In January, Nigerian singer-songwriter Nneka embarked on a 14-city tour in support of her first U.S. album, 'Concrete Jungle.' In her second tour diary for The Boombox, the 28-year-old gives fans a glimpse of her Hotel Cafe performance in Los Angeles and her show at the KCRW/Oxfam Grammy brunch.

"The ony way I'm able to achieve is by doing what I have to do with love and passion," Nneka says. "Whatever you do in life, whatever it may be, do it with passion. Do it with love, and if you don't do it with love, stop."

Find out what else she had to say in her full tour diary video, and check out a bonus live performance of 'Suffri' from New York's S.O.B.'s after the jump. Nneka will be hitting the road again next month with Nas and Damian "Jr Gong" Marley on the Distant Relatives Tour, beginning May 21.
