Adunni and Nefertiti group

 Adunni and Nefertiti is a multiple award winning, talented, cultural folk female singing group known for their African vibe and style of delivery. The word “Nefertiti” {Is derived from the Kiswahili-Bantu and Shona-Bantu languages}. They entertained the audience and trust me so many people were inspired with the African vibe they displayed.
