For anyone who comes across this scenario, here is how I got it working:

# get the first folder name into a variable ($site_folder)
	map $uri $site_folder {
	  ~^/(?P<folder>[a-zA-Z]+)/.*        $folder ;


	server {

		if (!-f $site_folder) {
			rewrite ^/[^/]+/(.*) /$1;

I am aware of the "if is evil" thing but it states that it is safe outside
of "location" block. Supposedly safe in "server" context.

Performance seems good so far.
