On to the second instalment that cuts through the glossy veneer of the music industry to examine what’s really going on behind the scenes. In this one, Mark Devlin engages in some real talk with Nesha, who many will remember as an R&B singer with hits such as ‘What’s It Gonna Be?’. She went on to become a daytime presenter on the BBC’s 1Xtra radio station, before parting company a few years ago, somewhat disillusioned at some of the attitudes and practices she had found at the BBC.
More recently, she’s been paying attention to the themes, subliminal messages and symbols contained in popular music, and has questioned what they are designed to achieve. Here, she shares many of her observations. Thought provoking throughout.
