Songstress, Niniola Reveals How Maradona Changed Her Life
The former ‘West Africa Project Fame’ winner disclosed this in a recent interview with Off-The-Top reality TV.
Niniola who is also the elder sister to the fellow singer, Teni the Entertainer, revealed that the hit song represents a radical turning point in her music career.
When asked about her romance with Afro-house genre, she said: “Preparation meets opportunity. To be honest. It just happened”.
She goes on further to say: “It’s the grace of God but as they say, when hard work and preparation meets opportunity, it just happens.
“After Project Fame, I just wanted to prove myself. I knew I could sing but I just wanted more. I loved to dance and wanted to incorporate these two things.
“I didn’t know anybody in the industry. So, I went online in search for the best producer in Nigeria. This was in 2013. Sarz’s name kept coming up. I reached out to him and he requested that I give him a hit song. I dropped “Ibadi” and that’s how it happened.
“One song changed my life. I just did the song Maradona and knew that, like every other ones, it was good. But when we dropped it, it went boom. People and artistes from South Africa started reaching out to me.”
