Budding singer, Niniola, first came to prominence on the music reality show, MTN Project Fame.
Born and raised in Lagos state, Niniola attended Apata Memorial School and the University of Lagos were she studied Biology Education.
Here are excerpts from her interview with Premium Times;
PT: How is life after MTN Project Fame?
Niniola: Life after Project Fame has been eye opening. In real life, there’s no spoon-feeding as opposed to life in the academy where everything, like publicity, is handled by Project Fame. Starting my musical career has been exciting as well as challenging. But I’m grateful to God, my parents, Project Fame, my management – Naijareview, and everyone who has been supportive.
PT: You must have learnt a few things in the house; how helpful are those things to your career now?
Niniola: I was blessed to have been tutored by professionals in dance, drama, vocal delivery and its application on the big stage. The show encourages singers to perform with a live band to a live audience at the risk of heavy criticism from the judges. Thus, a reminder to always give your best. I hold on steadfastly to all I have learnt.
PT: How did music begin for you?
Niniola: Music started from my home; listening to my parents’ records. My Dad was a music lover with an amazing collection.
