How ‘Maradona’ changed my life- Singer, Niniola
Nigerian singer, Niniola Apata in a recent chat, disclosed how her song ‘Maradona’ changed her life.
Niniola, who is older sister to Teni the Entertainer, had been in the news for buying JAMB examination forms for 30 students.
The “Ibadi” crooner said:
“Preparation meets opportunity. To be honest. It just happened”
“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.”
