Nigerian vocalist, Niniola Apata, says her hit tune, ‘Maradona’, speaks to an extreme defining moment in her music profession.
The 32-year-old vocalist, who is in the Afro-house music sort, made the revelation in a meeting on Off – The-Top unscripted TV drama where the she portrayed her development in the music business.
“Planning meets opportunity,” Niniola stated, when gotten some information about her sentiment with the Afro-house classification. “To be completely forthright. It simply occurred”, she included.
“It’s the beauty of God however as is commonly said, when diligent work and readiness meets opportunity, it simply occurs. After Project Fame, I simply needed to substantiate myself. I realized I could sing yet I simply needed more. I wanted to move and needed to consolidate these two things.
“I didn’t know anyone in the business. Along these lines, I went online in scan for the best maker in Nigeria. This was in 2013. Sarz’s name kept coming up. I connected with him and he asked for that I give him a hit melody. I dropped “Ibadi” and that is the manner by which it occurred.
“One tune completely changed me. I simply did the melody (Maradona) and realized that, similar to each different ones, it was great. However, when we dropped it, it went blast. Individuals and artistes from South Africa began connecting with me.”
Niniola Apata is the sister of Teni The Entertainer, a vocalist best known for ‘Askamaya’, ‘Case’, and ‘Uyo Meyo’.
