Music star Niniola during an interview with Punch‘s Eric Dumo talked about how she started her music career, saying she left the teaching profession for the industry.
The University of Lagos graduate aforementioned she tutored at a middle school in Lagos as a part of her college undergraduate program, and upon graduation, she moved to her dad’s school, that she attended, and become a supervisor for a few years.
Eventually, “music took hold of me,” she said.
There was “some kind of objection from my mother,” Niniola said. “But when she realised that I wasn’t backing down, she had to support me.”
Niniola says she’s naturally a ballad singer, but for her love for dancing, she decided to do dance music, describing her style as Afro-house, a blend of Afrobeat and House Music.
